Preparing powerful face-to-face meetings is art.

Organizing successful and compelling face-to-face meetings, workshops or regional seminars is a lot of work. And it’s an art too!

There is a new Guidebook: GATHER, the art and science of effective convenings.

Rockefeller Foundation jointly with its partners with The Monitor Institute and Monitor Deloitte, published this powerful guidebook. It’s a great resource for preparing your next workshop and make it a deep learning and mind changing event.

“Collective intelligence trumps individual smarts when it comes to solving shared problems.

Gather asks the right questions and offers how-to guides and tools:

– To convene or not to convene?
– What’s the point?
– Who’s your team?
– Who do you invite?
– What will they do together?
– What will you carry forward?

In short it’s a valuable resource, a must every face-to-face workshop organizer and facilitator.
