Why with Craig

Craig Freshley recently won the American Civic Collaboration Award.
He has professionally facilitated over 3,000 meetings. He's written a book called The Wisdom of Group Decisions. He's published hundreds of how-to videos, tips, and handouts on all aspects of group meetings.

Craig is spontaneous, cheerful, genuine, and he knows what's he's doing.

How this works

Click here to register.

You will watch and listen to the live webinar from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. From wherever you want. You will be able to ask questions in writing and we will address the most popular and interesting ones.

After the webinar we will send follow up materials including a recording of the webinar. We will also sign you up to receive Craig's weekly Good Group Tips.

The cost

Pay what you want.

Craig is a professional facilitator and trainer and typically charges high-end market rates for his services. Yet right now, we don't want to exclude anyone from learning Zoom skills to help groups make good decisions.As guidance for how much to pay, The Maine Association of Non Profits just offered an online 1.25-hour Zoom Training to non-members for $50.

In April, Judy Rees and Lisette Sutherland are offering an online 8-hour Remote Meetings Master Class for $525.

For this, maybe $20-$80? If you want to support us big and you have the ability, that would be great. Medium or small support is also okay. $0 is also perfectly acceptable.
