In response to the need for social distancing to keep us all healthy, our in-person Spark Decks workshops have been postponed. But we are ramping up our VIRTUAL offerings, so we can continue to grow and learn together.

Join our mailing list (at the bottom of this page) to receive announcements about our upcoming workshops.

If your work life is blowing up right now as things are cancelled or moved online, come join us (Kim Roth Howe and Eva Jo) to explore:
  • How to translate in-person processes to online spaces
  • What tools best support what processes and activities
  • Best practices, tips, and resources for creating meaningful, engaging events online
