Here’s a solution I came up for a virtual conference...using Miro!!
We wanted to replicate the energizing feeling that comes with attending an in-person conference...virtually! I used Design Thinking to work through what challenges (cost, lack of human connection etc..) we needed to solve for and decided to create a prototype in Miro.
After putting quite a bit of time thinking through the solution and crafting the solution, we determined that a less complex approach would be used to accomodate the conference hosts. It felt like a failure because it the new approach did not quite address the challenges we were looking to solve for.
I still view this a win because the process allowed us to think through challenges we needed to solve for, especially as this is a repeating event. If you’re thinking about hosting a virtual conference, think no further than Miro.
