Description

Voltage Control is hosting Control the Room, Austin Facilitator Summit at Capital Factory in downtown Austin on Thursday, May 23, 2019! It’s a full day, single track event for facilitators to meet peers, deepen their knowledge and hone their craft. Our goal is to cross-pollinate facilitators with different methods they can effectively leverage in the future.

This event provides a platform for the Austin facilitator community to gather to share ideas and an authentic, meaningful experience. We’re lining up a high-energy, highly-interactive day of learning, practicing, and most importantly, connecting. 

We will kickoff the day with a presentation by Priya Parker, author of The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters. Priya wants to invigorate the ways people come together in order to banish stale conferences, flat dinner parties, and unproductive board meetings. In her interactive talks she challenges audiences to dig down to the root of why and how we make connections, create communities, and build organizations.
