Zoom to the Moon is a cohort-based facilitated online course about meeting facilitation skills 

for brave educators who want to take charge of their meetings and turn them into learning opportunities, all while having fun through getting things done

 

It's a mix of simple strategies to make your meetings work for you and not the other way around.

WHY HAVE I CREATED THIS COURSE?

After 12+ years of internally facilitating meetings in organisations, I decided to create Zoom to the Moon.

 

I've seen that training as many team members as possible with skills of meeting facilitation makes a massive impact on the way team members contribute to meeting culture, the decision-making is easier, and people experience more joy and connection in their working environment. 

I believe team meetings are an opportunity to learn together about the people, the organisation, or the larger context we live in.

And learning is fun, right?

 

So, please let me show you how meetings can be a fun and effective learning experience instead of a life-sucking part of the week you wish would not exist.

“If you have the chance to work with her, make use of it!"

Neža facilitated 3 training sessions at the HAN. We worked on various education innovation projects. She absolutely nailed it and made all the trainees fans immediately.

She is well-prepared and mixes solid knowledge of ancient wisdom with modern facilitation techniques and practical tips for our projects. She is keen on feelings and sentiments in the group and addresses these well. In doing so, she creates a great and safe working environment where trainees really challenge themselves.

BY WHO?

Hi, I'm Neža!

I created Zoom to the Moon after 12+ years of facilitating meetings in organisations internally.

 

I want to help educators and teams where learning is a central value turn their meetings into learning experiences that put connection first.

 

In my experience, once the connection is established, productivity follows. Not the other way around.

 

Let's turn meetings into time for getting things done while having fun in 5 weeks.

 

Oh, yes, it is possible! Curious?

THAT'S SOMETHING FOR ME!

WHY ZOOM TO THE MOON NOW?

20230524 DITB .jpg

If I ask my clients what is the first thing that comes to mind when I say: "weekly team meetings", this is what comes up: 

  • boring, repetitive

  • lack of energy

  • too long

  • nothing really happens during or after them 

The list of life-sucking adjectives goes on. Hmmm, isn't it a waste to spend so many hours of our lives on events that don't 

  • nourish our longing for connection

  • help us to get things done

  • enable us to do what we are hired to do

  • support us in getting closer to our desired impact?

 

Isn't it time to take charge of your time and energy and do meetings in a more effective (I didn't write 'efficient' for a reason!!!), inclusive and healthy way? 

If you find yourself nodding to the above, then hop on the button below and get access to the next round of Zoom to the Moon course.

I'd love to support you on your journey to Bleh! to Yeah!

  • Why do FAQs matter?

  • What is an FAQ section?
    An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about your business like "Where do you ship to?", "What are your opening hours?", or "How can I book a service?".
  • Where can I add my FAQs?
    FAQs can be added to any page on your site or to your Wix mobile app, giving access to members on the go.
  • How do I add a new question & answer?
    To add a new FAQ follow these steps: 1. Manage FAQs from your site dashboard or in the Editor 2. Add a new question & answer 3. Assign your FAQ to a category 4. Save and publish. You can always come back and edit your FAQs.
  • How do I edit or remove the 'Frequently Asked Questions' title?
    You can edit the title from the FAQ 'Settings' tab in the Editor. To remove the title from your mobile app go to the 'Site & App' tab in your Owner's app and customize.
  • Can I insert an image, video, or GIF in my FAQ?

  • How do I join Zoom to the Moon course?
    Joining Zoom to the Moon is easy! Simply: Click HERE. You'll be redirected to a payment page. Follow the simple instructions on that payment page and complete the purchase process. Note: You’ve only secured your spot once we receive your payment. A few minutes after the purchase you'll receive access to a course page from hello@nezakrek.com. An email with instructions on what's next will follow shortly after. The course page will be mostly empty until 14.02.2024 when you’ll receive access to the first module, and then the fun begins! In the meantime, direct any questions you might have to hello@nezakrek.com. I can’t wait to work with you!
  • Does the meeting facilitation you teach here work offline or online?
    In Zoom to the Moon, you will learn about facilitation as a way of guiding meetings differently and all the techniques can be seamlessly applied in an online or in an in-person environment. Wherever there is a significant difference in application, I will make a distinction and give you tips on how to translate whatever you want to pull off in the environment you are working in.
  • I have several interested colleagues, too. Do you offer group discounts?
    I do. For every 8 licences, your team gets the 9th for free. That means all 8 licences will be paid by 1 institution on 1 invoice. The payment will most probably happen via an invoice sent to your HR. To get the discount, send me an email to hello@nezakrek.com with the names and emails of all the people who're in for the adventure and we'll figure out the payment process that works for your institution.
  • The organisation I work for will sponsor my participation in Zoom to the Moon. What now?
    Firstly, you have a great employer! Investing in building capacity to facilitate better meetings in their own company is wise. When your employer pays for your participation in Zoom to the Moon, send me an email to hello@nezakrek.com with the names and emails of all the people who want to participate and include the email and name of the person in your organisation who can authorise this purchase. If there are more than 8 people joining from your team, you get the 9th seat for free. Kinda cool, right? I will then contact the (probably HR) department and arrange for an invoicing process away from my webshop. Please note that VAT may apply depending on the location of your organisation (NL, EU, outside of EU). So again, send an email to hello@nezakrek.com and we'll get it settled quickly.
  • I have a question I don't see an answer to. Where can I reach you?
    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at hello@nezakrek.com. I'll do my best to answer as soon as possible.
  • I'm an introvert. Can I ever be a good facilitator?
    Introverts have a great gift of observation which is crucial for quality facilitation. In the course, I'll show you what are the qualities you can lean into and be an excellent facilitator.
  • How much time should I reserve for the course?
    Depending on the module, you can count on 1-1,5 hrs of video material per week. Add the weekly live call of 1,5hrs. The rest is up to you. I'll encourage you to already think of a time when you could practice facilitating the next meeting. That way you will already do all the preparations needed for future work AND get feedback on it if you so wish to. Two flies with one stone!
  • Will I learn lots of new tools, ice-breakers, and exercises?
    Yes, and no. Yes, in the sense that you will experience a whole program being facilitated through different exercises that will seamlessly flow into each other. However, this is not a course in tools. I prefer teaching you the logic behind tools and promise you something better: by the end of this course you can pick up whatever toolbox and know how to read and apply any exercise in the book to your class.
  • I'm not a fan of technology. Can I still use the knowledge in this course for my (online) meetings?
    Absolutely! Whenever you enter any of my trainings - be it online or offline, you'll notice straight away that I use everyday tools you are probably already familiar with. No shiny programs, no PowerPoint, no complicated applications. My motto is: first learn to facilitate well, only then dive into extra fancy technology IF you have the energy for it. Otherwise, having a computer, a good enough microphone, a decent camera, and a pen and paper is all you need for facilitating meetings online and pen and paper for an offline version.
