Virtual Facilitation

Facilitation is a craft and so is Virtual Facilitation. Through relentless experimentation and practice, Voltage Control has built the skills & identified the best tools to keep everyone at their best.



Maybe you’ve had to cancel an upcoming strategy session, project kickoff, workshop or other gathering and you are uncertain how to move this event online in a way that doesn’t diminish the outcomes or participant experience. Whether you just want guidance or need more hands-on support, Voltage Control can help you design and execute your virtual gathering.



When you need to collaborate but can’t get everyone in a room, Virtual Facilitation is a smart choice. Instead of making clumsy or careless transitions to virtual, work with us to ensure that you:

A Design Sprint is a week-long process for tackling a business problem that was initially developed at Google Ventures. Over five days, the sprint takes a team through a design thinking-based process to uncover insights, prototype an idea, and test it with users.
