📍Where is everyone from?📍
Hello Facilitators👋 I'm really curious about where everyone is from. I'd love to make this a mega post where we can see how diverse the Facilitator Club community is. Who knows, you might find a lot more people in your area than you thought! Once I have lots of answers on this post, I want to make a nice graph!

Landed first 2 hour workshop for $4k
Last week I facilitated a 2 hour workshop for an insurance company that wants to introduce a new offer to grow and change direction due to new California law that is killing its cash cow offer. To put things in context, in the past I charged $2k for a day. But, it never hurts to ask even thought the thought feels frightening. Best of the experience is that this was the first time I run this type of workshop - “The Story Framework Sprint” and in a new Indutry. Quote from the CEO - “we have too much knowledge in our head that it’s confusing to make sense of it in a simple way”. This helps to simplify our focus.

Congratulations, well done! Where you happy with how the day went? Anything you would do differently next time? Did you send them a report or some sort of a deliverable with actionable insights afterwards?

@Javier von Westphalen That's great. Positive feedback and valuable learnings to take with you!
Persona and Customer Journey workshop
Hi there! I'm putting together an online Persona/ Customer Journey workshop for an (industrial) b2b client. I've facilitated a live workshop like this before, using a canvas and a flip-over for structure. But I'm a bit worried about the energy when we do this online. Anyone experience doing this? Tips and tricks/ exercises are very welcome!

Hi @Janine Katzberg , thank you. Acting out parts of the journey might be a good test at the end of a Persona workshop, to see if they truly understand each type of buyer. I will think through the chat-games a little more, to customise it for this specific goal. But it indeed sounds like a great energiser and as a way for them to find new insights. So, thank you!

@Ömür Yanıkoğlu That's great advice, thank you. I agree, it's easier to overlook comments/answers of participants in an online workshop. Also, the not being able to walk around, listen in a bit and gauge the mood, is quite different from in person workshops. Thank you for your input!
DISC specific energisers/activities
Hey legends, I'm running a DISC session in 10 days with a small C suite group. Have a few but looking for more DISC based energisers or practical activities. Would love to hear any ideas or go-tos you use. Thanks

@Raj Mehta Great exercise: energising, a great ice breaker and a nice introduction into Disc!
Tool tips for time keeping
I've already complained about how unreliable I found the Time Timer to be. I had enough of it. So I ordered the Yunbaoit VT08 Pro Digital Rechargeable Visual Timer from Amazon (quite a mouthful). What can I say. It's rechargeable. It can count up and down. Easy to use. It's completely silent. And it shows the time on an analog display. It's cheap, even (compared to the Time Timer). Okay. It's also pretty small (but easy to read). The display is 6x6cm. I now use my Time Timer as a decorative piece on my shelf. Like AJ&Smart in their videos… Bonus tip: If you are looking for a virtual timer, check out It's a web application that can be controlled from another computer. Works with Stream Deck and OBS. Ace.
