"I participated in the three-part Virtual Convening Certification Program from After completing this, I feel much better prepared for my upcoming virtual events. This workshop was very intuitive and has helped me better understand how to bring “the human touch” into the world of virtual events, something that is so often lacking. Each multi-hour session seemed to fly by so quickly, I barely felt like I was in the workshops for 3 full hours! The sessions were fun, engaging, and so insightful. I’d recommend this course to anyone who is navigating the new norm of facilitating virtual events." - Annie Hall Mikkelson, Program Manager for the Green Building Council
