"I've run hundreds of workshops and had the luck to collaborate with many world-class facilitators. I learned so much during the Workshop Creator sessions.
I gained awareness into the things I have been accidentally doing right and why they work. This will help me scale those patterns. I also learned many areas where I can improve.
While taking the course I unexpectedly needed to design and deliver two new workshops. It was clear to me what I was learning had a direct, positive impact on the quality of workshops I ran."
Zach Nies Managing Director, Techstars Sustainability
"Participating in Workshop Creator has been one of the 'warmest' learning journeys I've ever been part of.
Seeing workshop creation as a 'learner' was invaluable to gain a fresh perspective on what and why certain formats and activities work and learn why others don't; while also discovering cool tricks and new ways to improve on them.
Workshop Creator Live is a 6 week program that will help you learn how to design and facilitate engaging workshops and courses.
However, it goes way beyond that.
It'll change how you think about, develop, and present your work.
You’ll develop a whole range of transferrable, future proof skills: design, persuasion, critical thinking, storytelling, presenting, coaching, and management.
Curriculum, Coaching, and Community
Beyond the skills you'll learn from the curriculum, this program has been intentionally designed for you to have the space and time to connect with other people who are doing the work and looking to go beyond.
Because workshops are about the work, but they're also about the shared experience and connections that come from learning and making progress with others.
The community and coaching support helps you to see new angles and ideas, pushes you through the resistance, and aids you in refining your work so it gets better.
It happens in our 24/7 discussion forum, during office hours with the workshop team, and in our weekly 90 min live sessions.
We've seen the enormous value in this shared experience time and time again.
I'm an entrepreneur, educator, and coach based in NYC.
I've designed and facilitated education experiences spanning 1 hour workshops to long-form accelerator programs (and just about everything in between), and for audiences ranging from senior leaders at Fortune 100 companies to early stage entrepreneurs and 5 year old kids.
I'm a facilitator with leading international education companies Decoded and Hyper Island, a mentor at The New School and BUILD NYC, a member of the SXSW advisory board, and a certified professional coach for established professionals working in creative and digital fields.
Some of the companies I've worked with include Spotify, GE, IBM, Mastercard, Stella McCartney, NBC Universal, NYC.gov, and UBS, to name just a few.
I also host the ‘Tickets’ podcast, featuring guests from companies such as Airbnb, The New York Times, Sonar Festival and Duolingo, and am on an ongoing search for the perfect breakfast.

“...super valuable to advance my Facilitation Skills. It was very practical and hands-on. With lots of real world examples and experience, the team taught us a lot of details on how to structure and facilitate a workshop.
It was awesome to have a learning community, try things out each week and get helpful feedback.”
