ABOUT THE PANEL: Facilitating Community Gatherings — Tools for Fun & Function

Taking part in, and being part of, is human nature, and a lot of fun! Getting not-yet friends to do that…sometimes is not. Join Súle Greg Wilson in this fun and challenging interactive lab as we demonstrate and experience some time-tested tools, techniques and methods to engage attendees and turn frowns upside-down, transforming an expectant—and sometimes uncomfortable—set of observers into a warm, cooperative in-the-moment community

We will share ways to:
Connect with those present
Comfort the uncertain
Contain our own nervousness
Communicate clearly
And Make it funky.

It’s all good.
