Ever more human in the digital world or "How to make your online event
Since almost all our gatherings - from meetings to workshops to bigger
conferences - have moved online, we have all had this experience: at some
point, we simply "Zoom out", turn off our video and turn on Netflix
instead. But it doesn't have to be like this. Actually, this massive
disruption can also be a great chance for us to make all our gatherings
better - by finally acknowledging the most important factor in all of them:
the human element. Interestingly enough it is the digital world that makes
us ever more aware of our real human needs. We crave for real connection,
want to receive information in a playful and entertaining way and want to
engage with others. And all of this is possible, online as much as
offline. In this input, I want to share some of our main findings on how to
keep people engaged, interested and ever more connected in online-formats -
and by that actually become more human in the digital world.
