I’m introverted, and running workshops for people makes me nervous
I have no experience running workshops. Where do I start?
I don’t really feel I’m an expert. What will everyone think of me?
I want to find new ways and tools to solve user problems.

I’m not an outgoing person – how do I even run a UX workshop?
And you’re not the only one! But that doesn’t have to keep you from doing what you enjoy and makes your job easier. We’ll show you helpful tools and practical ways to start tough conversations with the client or your team without turning you into someone you’re not.
You don’t have to suddenly become the life of the party (or the meeting room.) Instead, focus on workable – and marketable – skills that’ll give you the edge and turn you into an influential partner people look up to.

What's inside the course?What's inside the course?
- Step 1
Learn how to define in detail the goals of the workshop and who you should invite and in what numbers.
- Step 2
Learn how to use the workshop canvases available out there for your benefit and how to adapt them to your purpose. Learn how to create your own methods to maximise the efficiency and what you can charge your Clients.
- Step 3
Learn how to create a very detailed agenda of the workshop that will make you feel like a professional ready for anything. Understand fully the different modes of work during a workshop and how to manage them.
- Step 4
Learn how to facilitate your workshop participants - what to watchout for and how to get the maximum out of it. Learn how to manage the time so that you always have time left for any additional discussions or let people go home early.
- Step 5
Learn which tools and materials are best for your workshops and how to use them - even things as simple as using post-it notes have a way of working with them before, during and after the workshops - you have to know that.
- Step 6
Learn how to synthesize the topics discussed during the workshop - it’s not just about rewriting what’s been written on the wall - it’s about your conclusions and how you paraphrase it into something meaningful.
- Step 7
Learn how to run an online workshop using online tools like Mural or Miro. Learn the ins and outs and the pitfalls of going remote - how to manage the discussion when people are hidden behind their muted microphones.

- For whom is this course?
It’s for user experience designers, product designers, and design thinkers who want to confidently organize and host meetings with multiple people leading to a tangible result and not just hours of endless conversations that don’t get you anywhere.

- I'm a graphic designer, is this course for me?
It’s definitely for you if you want to be able to defend your design based on what users actually want or to gain crystal clear requirements from your client. Even if you hate meetings but need to get that essential information – you’ll now have the tools to do it.
- Is this course necessary for my work as a UX Designer?
You bet it is! Knowing how to facilitate meetings will let you create wireframes faster, not waste anyone’s time (including yours), all while answering the needs of both the users and the client.
