I am an independent consultant currently planning a workshop with ca. 100 participants.We will use Miro for facilitation during the workshop. I am looking for live advice/coaching on how to use Miro effectively with large group workshops.I would also be interested to hire someone who can co-facilitate workshops from a Miro functionality perspective. The only expertise needed is guiding participants through Miro functionality, no other subject matter expertise needed. Are you interested in this type of gig work or know someone who might be?

Hi there Miro Community, The video below is a walkthrough of an integrative thinking case study I did this week. It walks our business owner through a tough decision around how she wants to grow her business. She isn’t content with option A or B, so she creates option LMNOP. I’d love feedback and I’m also curious to know how you guys handle the process-to-practical Miro applications in your own work. Here’s a link to the board if you’d like to check it out in further detail:
Hello, I’m wondering what features are planned in the short and medium term for Miro? If we get the product, what new things will be released soon that we can take advantage of, on top of all of the current functionality? Also are there any other integration points with Azure DevOps or Sharepoint planned at all? Many thanks Natalie
Earlier today, at our annual "virtual" offsite we had a live zoom Q+A with Stephen Curry, whose one of Miro’s investors. It was awesome hearing him share his experience as a leader ~ who knew basketball & tech had so much in common? One of my favorite takeaways was him sharing that a great team is one that holds you accountable, to know your strengths... & as much as you can, spend time working on your weaknesses.No one likes to watch themselves fail, but it prepares you for that next moment. Read a cool blog post with 3 points of wisdom we scored from Stephen Curry at our 2020 virtual offsite.
I was struck to read this quote in an Atlantic article about The Great Resignation: As I wrote in the spring, quitting is a concept typically associated with losers and loafers. But this level of quitting is really an expression of optimism that says, We can do better. After 19 months of fear and ongoing bad news, I felt a sense of relief at the thought that this big economic shift we're hearing about could be a good thing for us. From what I've read, "The Great Resignation" may indicate a new way we're reconnecting with ourselves. As someone who tends to be cynical, I will gladly cling onto the idea that maybe all this bad stuff can lead to greater connection. What do you think? Are we connecting more to ourselves and even to each other amidst all this change? Or is this our attmept at finding a sliver lining to a grey cloud?
Cooler than cool! In reality, sticky notes and flip charts can possibly be transmission tools! As facilitators and trainers, what can you do to be prepared for COVID-19 prevention once you head back to classrooms? Use a Miro board in the classroom and keep the conversations inclusive and opinions diverse. The image above explains itself. This is an Agile Marketing training workshop conducted by 2 of my close partners based in Holland. While this may be de rigueur way of working for some of you, I personally never thought of this even though I had trained my partners on using Miro for online facilitation! What's missing is perhaps (and for bigger classes) individual screens for each group that can become "group flip charts". It will be interesting to see how this can be configured in a classroom to accommodate Miro screens.

Hi everyone, my business has an 8 month B2B Strategic Partnerships Program that in the old days of f2f workshops, we delivered in 3 modules of 2-3 days per module (plus some other support activities like one-on-one coaching).We initially moved 2 of the program modules online using Zoom, PDFs of our original workshop materials, and then Mural. And then we discovered the joy of Miro and have been using it with shorter programs since the end of 2020.We are now looking at redesigning our 8 month program to be completely online, with all the content in Miro - both our design and the participants’ work over the 8 months too.While we’ve been forced to gain a bit of experience doing this over the last year, we’re trying to find a Miro expert with (we guess) a visual design / UX design background who can help us:1) design an overall Miro board(s) structure that supports the program’s structure and participant activities - which we’ve redesigned to move from f2f to online delivery;2) create a co
Howdy all - not sure when this feature was introduced, but the relative snapping (adjusting dimensions and having those dimensions match to other like dimensions within the current view) is awesome! The next level would be to do the same for margins :)Real talk, thank you for introducing this feature
I’m looking for some advice and guidance on using miro for a working group. If they are looking to post many documents, weblinks, images etc within key themes - what is the best way to organize this? Folders? Multiple boards? Is it searchable? Can they be nested within each other? If this a good tool for curating content/cataloguing content - or would you use a different tool such as google drive? I like the visual nature of it, easy ability to upload - but I am not sure if Miro is a good tool for such work. We are new at using it so any advice would be great. Thanks,Julie
I have been using Miro for this Fall 2020 semester, which is my Master’s year in Architecture, where we have been experimenting with presentation viability of the program. Overall the program is really nice for us to present our thesis although I have some suggestions and a workaround.I think the program’s presentation mode could really benefit from a Prezi Style Approach, whereby the progression of slides, is the camera jumping from point to point (or slide to slide) visually. Miro already kind of does this when setting up frames and being in presenter mode. (But not when you click present next to the slide arrows in the bottom middle of the screen; that makes it more a typical slideshow). However there needs to be the ability to hide frames as they are a bit visually obtrusive when you multiple in the same area. I mainly am doing this when I first show an overview, then zoom in to one of the specific points.Workaround:You can make it a bit less intrusive by removing the titles of the
Hi guys! Since most of our team’s workshops and visual meetings became fully remote I started feeling that engagement of participants on those meetings became much lower. Partly because I have less control of their actions and attention, but I think there’s something about micro-interactions between people that usually occur during in-person meetings.Like greeting a newcomer when they enter the room. Or finding a familiar face in the room and sitting right next to them to feel more confident. Raising a thumb up just to appreciate someone’s work. Just little things that don’t require a lot of effort but enable those tiny little moments of communicating your emotions, thoughts, reactions, stuff like that.Does it ring the bell for you? Have you experienced something similar? Is there anything you noticed that impacts participants’ engagement heavily in remote meetings you conduct?
1am start time notwithstanding, @Joshua William Davies and I had a blast of a time co-facilitating this workshop session at Miro’s Distributed 2020 conference last week. We shared about how you can make Miro a safe working and collaboration space for everybody and aspects you can should consider when designing and facilitating experiences within a virtual environment.Do watch the video recording of the session and check out the Miro board itself!
Hi everyoneI was wondering if anyone has a one-page cheat sheet or user guide they would be happy to share?We’re currently implementing Miro as an enterprise app at my organisation and as part of that, we would like to share a cheat sheet / user guide / training document with colleagues.Many thanks in advanceDane
Embedded Miro boards are cool, but they’re not responsive. The out-of-the-box HTML embed code for embedding a Miro board on a web page is fixed-size. Your embedded board will look great on a large screen, like a laptop, but not so great on a small screen, like a phone.Here’s a way to embed Miro boards on a responsive web page. I have an example at https://agilesoftwarecourse.org/backlog . It looks great on any device and screen size (as far as I know ).Here’s how to do embed your Miro board on a responsive web page:Get the embed code for your board: The board’s default embed code will look something like this: Copy-paste that HTML into your web page, for example:<iframe width-”768” height=”432” src="https://miro.com/app/live-embed/o9J_l6jHaVU=/?moveToViewport=-1758,-1612,1544,919" frameBorder="0" scrolling="no" allowFullScreen></iframe>Delete the width= and height= parts of the code. Replace them with class="responsive-iframe". Now your HTML will look like this:<iframe
Hi folksA client uses Miro, so I’m using it for a workshop in a couple of weeks. I’ve already spent some time playing to get used to the controls.Some in my group of up to 15 will know how to use it but others will be a new. The client is sending a briefing out beforehand, but they’re busy people - I won’t expect them all to have the hang of it.So, I’d really appreciate some pointers for:1 How to set up a Miro board for brainstorming and capturing thoughts, with 3-4 groups 2 How to give them a walkthrough at the start (maybe combined with an icebreaker)Thank you
Hi, I recently ran a workshop over Miro, which involved a lot of people putting sticky notes on a matrix. It turn into a beautiful colourful mess, which was exactly what I was looking for. However, at the end of the session the host of the workshop told me that someone had sent them a direct message saying that they could not participate because they had dyspraxia and struggled with all the colours and moving parts. I was therefore wondering if anyone else had experienced this and whether they had any tips to make their Miro boards more inclusive and accommodating to those who have dyspraxia.
I have way too many board with the default logo. It was hard to find anything. I tried selecting the remarkable area of the board so that I could visually see it. But that was also not great.Then I found out how to "craft" them. I recorded a small how-to in case you want to do that, too.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EQu94hjaDs (I couldn't embed the video for some reason)In short it is:put an emoji on the board click on the title of the board click "select preview area" zoom in on your emoji hit doneAs soon as you refresh your dashboard, your board will be updated. step 3: click "select preview area"step 4: zoom in on your art Refresh your dashboard and your thumbnail should be updated

A very insightful study by PwC on #remotework trends. Zooming on the 'physical office' conundrum, it seems like employers and employees have different expectations on what the physical workplace should deliver.In my mind, I can see a promising middle ground that is the hybrid model. Simply because none of those factors quoted by both employers and employees are impossible to achieve while working remotely.What I'm proposing (in fact, a couple of my clients are running away with this idea!) is the concept of 'Virtual Middle Place' (somebody has a snazzier moniker?) It is a hybrid workplace enabled by collaborative and interactive platforms such as Miro, Mural and Stormboard.It is a middle place for an organisation where some people will choose to work from home, some in the office, and most will switch their environments once in a while. A very fluid working environment, yet always connected.Using #virtualmiddleplace, facilitative leadership theories and techniques, I believe I can help
I am curious to know if you ever needed to group stickies somehow during the Workshop, why do you need that and how do you do that.When I am on the workshop with my team and we have some braistorming session we usually sort stikies manually to find some patterns and group them accordingly. Usually the person who wrote the skitie try to find the right group and place the stikie there or create the new group.Are there any other cases and best practices?
As the Istanbul Literature House, we have completed our first digital Book Fair using Miro's unique features. It was our only second fair of independent publishers but, due to the pandemic, we weren't able to organize it in a physical space. Then we discovered Miro and started to think if it was possible to use its features to set up a digital space where publishing houses could open their stands, just like in a real fair. And it worked out beautifully. Each publishing house was able to work independently on the board, some of them prepared amazingly designed stands. We also organized 36 video events on Zoom and YouTube in nine days. Our Miro space became a place where people could see the programme (by turning the pages of a giant, pdf, booklet), find out the links of the upcoming events, watch the videos of previous events and visit each publishing houses stands to discover and buy some books.The fair has ended now, but we are keeping the board open for a second week.
