Whether you have a daunting design decision to make, an organisational problem to solve, or your team just isn't singing from the same hymn sheet - finding the right way to have the right conversations with your team can feel overwhelming, and the idea of a "workshop" sounds like time you don't have.

Workshops can be powerful tools for harmonious and effective game development - but they can also be messy, "forced fun" rabbit holes. Getting the intention, design and execution just right is an art.

This talk will draw upon years of experience in creating workshops for development teams, stakeholders and external partners to suggest a system of modules for designing and facilitating the right session for your game team's needs. Covering design principles, tools and technology and facilitation techniques, this talk is all about helping you design the conversations your team needs.
