Talking with the organizers allowed me to prepare a keynote that was meant to do more than just share general information on Radical Collaboration. For example, knowing that many people in the audience had never met each other in person, I included questions that could serve as conversation starters for people during the next break.
Based on what they’ve shared with me about the realities of their teams, I also focused on sharing hands-on, practical tips and examples that people could incorporate into their next meeting or other everyday interactions to make their teamwork more effective.
The talk received positive feedback, but an even bigger proof of its impact for me was that one of the teams contacted me later, saying that the way I approached collaboration in my presentation was intriguing and they wanted to learn more about how they could use it in their own teamwork. I designed a collaboration workshop for them, a project you can read more about here.
