Free online tools for workshops and meetings

Are you facilitating workshops, meetings, or training sessions regularly? Do you sometimes feel that the good old pen and paper or the MS Office toolkit combined with email leaves you struggling to stay on top of managing your workshop preparations and delivery?

Fortunately, there are plenty of online tools to make your life easier when you need to prepare for meeting facilitation and to conduct workshops.

The good thing is that you don’t have to pay a fortune to have the use of technology that helps you make your job easier as a facilitator.

In fact, there are plenty of free online workshop tools and meeting facilitation software you can use to become more productive when in the process of preparing or following up a facilitated session.

We collected the most useful tools we have encountered while talking to SessionLab users: facilitators, corporate trainers, and service designers as well as our own personal experience. It was an important factor for us that each of the tools had a fully functional free version available without time limitation so you can rely on these options long term.

We grouped the tools according to the type of tasks they are used for so you can find precisely what you need. The primary use case we considered was to support the workflow when you have face-to-face meetings or training sessions, though most of these tools are equally useful when you need to prepare online sessions.

You will find the following sections in the article. Click on the links below if you want to jump to a specific section:

Survey tools for needs assessment or evaluation

If you ask for feedback from participants and you want to go beyond using ‘happy sheets’, paper forms filled out right after the workshop on the spot, then you may decide to create an online survey after the session. Alternatively, you might want to conduct a needs assessment survey for the preparations. You can choose from a wide range of online survey tools that can do the job for you. Our favorites are:

  • Google Forms allow you to create unlimited surveys with 6 types of questions and skip logic that can guide your participants through your survey depending on their answers. The service has seamless integration with Google’s other apps including Gmail and spreadsheets. It has a great advantage: unlike most of the competition that has usage limits in their free versions, Google Forms is absolutely free.
  • Typeform has made filling out forms engaging and interactive. The forms look fresh and modern, promising that users are more likely to enjoy the survey experience and complete it all the way through. Although their pricing change in 2021 May deceased the limit of the free plan from 100 to 10 answers per month, so you would likely need the paid version – which includes adds extra features, such as advanced question types and conditional logic – if you want to use it for a real case.
  • Having been around since 1999, SurveyMonkey is one of the longest running online survey services in the world.  SurveyMonkey does the basics and does them well, providing a reliable alternative. In the free survey version, however, you will be limited to 10 questions, 40 respondents per survey and no possibility to export your data.

Cloud storage and document sharing with your co-workers

For most projects you take part in, sooner or later you will have an endless amount of documents: meeting memos, PowerPoint decks, a batch of documents you receive from your client and dozens of spreadsheets with session agendas, registrations forms… and the list can be continued.

We all usually find a way to dump all these documents into the right folder on our hard drive but what happens when you need to share them with various co-workers to work collaboratively? And what if you work with different people on different projects?

Online file storage and sharing solutions allow you to store all your files in the cloud and access them whether you are on your desktop, phone or tablet. What’s more you can easily share the documents with your colleagues and work on them simultaneously. The good thing is that you have plenty of services to choose from, most notably:

  • Dropbox, a pioneer in this market with their reliable and easy-to-use syncing and file sharing system. The free option offers 2GB of storage, although the full-text search that helps you find any piece of information within your document is only available in the paid version. The service is very easy to set up and rightfully praised for the clean design.
  • Google Drive, offering 15GB free storage, this has the added benefit of a built-in office suite where you can edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations even if you created the document in another program. Working together real-time on shared Google documents is a great feature and, similar to Dropbox, you can easily invite collaborators to any document or folder of yours.
  • OneDrive offers 5GB of free storage, a seamless integration to Windows, therefore it works especially well if you have a Windows PC, tablet and phone, and need to get to your files from any device with minimum effort.

As with many online tools, some of your clients might be sensitive about having data about their business stored in the cloud. For this reason, it’s useful to consider Box, which has more sophisticated collaboration and privacy control options for the business and enterprise users.

Free video conferencing – Communicate with your colleagues or clients while working remotely

The difficulty of working with someone who is sitting somewhere else can be reduced when you see each other or you are watching the same screen via screensharing. The solutions to this were pioneered by Skype and Google Hangouts initially, with some other really noteworthy options emerging in the last few years. Let’s see what the best options are:

  • Zoom provides exceptionally reliable quality, minimizing audio or video latency issues that you usually encounter with most video conferencing applications. It has a wide variety of features available both for individual and business needs including the scheduling of calls, a dial-in phone number and recording audio and video calls even on the free service plan. The only downside is the 40-minute call limit for group calls on the free version (while there is no time limit for one-to-one calls), while it still includes the option to run breakout rooms.
  • Whereby (formerly comes in to help when all other tools fail: you just open a video conferencing room, send the link to your guests and they can join without having to install any application or create an account. (Only a browser extension is needed to be added). It is a lightweight video chat tool with fewer features than Zoom but offers unprecedented ease of use. The free plan offers group video conferencing up to 45-minute group meetings (including breakouts) with one fixed meeting room and unlimited one-on-one meetings. Thus no need to create different meeting links each time, the same link will work for your team to meet anytime.
  • Skype was among the first players in peer-to-peer video conferencing and as it has been widely adopted now it’s often a straightforward option for calling contacts who have Skype accounts. On the downside, there is a long history of Skype calls suffering from quality issues and compatibility issues often hinder group calls. Unfortunately, it is also extremely difficult communicating with someone who uses the business version of Skype (Lync) while you are using the regular version.  Though Skype offer screen sharing and group video conferencing it seems to be taking way more resources from the computer than competing tools. On the upside, it’s a completely free option.
  • Meet – Google’s popular messaging app offers an easy-to-use video conferencing tool that works really well even if you need to talk with people in different domains. It became well-known for its high video quality and for offering better quality calls when bandwidth is low. Additionally, Google Meet offers many business-savvy features such as breakout rooms, attendance tracking, and live streaming.

Online whiteboard tools

Have you ever had to generate ideas or brainstorm with people who were at different locations? Or even planning a series of workshops with a remote team?

Seeing each other while video conferencing makes remote working easier. But what happens to the magic of being in the same room and letting the group’s creativity flow by working on the same whiteboard?

Complex problem solving often requires a visual platform to brainstorm and online whiteboards can help replicating the feeling of working together in person. They are not only useful for preparing your workshop with a remote team, but also for online meeting facilitation.

Online whiteboards offer an endless flexible space where you can collaborate and share ideas. You can create an online canvas and use that as a simple whiteboard for jotting down ideas, or as an infinite board for building a project with a remote team. They allow the creation of mockups and schemes, you can quickly add stickers, write down ideas and leave feedback.

  • Miro (formerly Realtimeboard): Besides the regular online whiteboard features of uploading images, creating notes and drawing in different colors and sizes in freehand mode the app offers a great template library to conveniently find the right structure you need for your whiteboard. The free version offers up to 3 boards for your team.
  • Mural is a versatile online whiteboard tool for remote team meetings. It is particularly strong as a team tool, allowing you to create different rooms for your board with differentiated access rights. Besides, it offers a wide range of workshop and meeting templates, including planning, design, issue analysis and idea generation board templates. Mural’s free plan includes 5 Mural boards with unlimited visitors and a whole suite of facilitation powers too.
  • Stormboard focuses on idea generation, organization, and prioritization: You can add different types of notes, combine them together, comment in threads, and vote on ideas using colored dots. It has a strong reporting functionality that allows you to instantly turn your online sticky notes into structured meeting reports. With its MS Office integration, the reports can be collaboratively edited and then shared immediately with meeting participants or key stakeholders. The free version offers 5 boards with a maximum 5 collaborators for each.

Online communication tools

Successful workshops and meetings are built on effective communication and this is even more true in online settings. While many meetings can be done over free video chat software, finding online communication tools that work asynchronously or allow groups to work together over longer periods have their place in your toolbox too.

  • If you work as a team online, chances are you have tried Slack. Slack is designed to make working with others easy and is full of features that help groups and teams connect, chat, and share in a virtual space. The free version of Slack has everything you need to communicate better online with your co-facilitators, clients, and workshop participants: a workspace, channels, 1:1 calls, 5GB of file storage, and up to ten integrations.
  • Coming as part of Microsoft’s 365 suite of tools, Microsoft Teams is group chat software designed to help teams collaborate across text chat, video and audio calls, and more. By tightly integrating with familiar tools like Excel and Word, Microsoft Teams can help a team integrate their workflow and communication channels with ease! The free version offers storage of 2 GB/user and 10 GB of shared storage, 1:1 and group meetings, and much more!
  • Immensely popular with gamers, streamers, and developers, Discord features a heap of features and is free and easy to use, making it a great alternative to other online communication tools. Discord’s free version features screen sharing, voice chat, and no member or message limits.

Collaboration tools

Do you have an endless to-do-list while having multiple facilitation assignments? Set a meeting with your next client, replace all the missing pieces of sticky notes and wallpapers from your magical workshop kit, checking in with the catering about the planned breaks and lunch for your session tomorrow, prepare and send a survey to participants for your next event… the list is endless when you juggle multiple meetings and workshops that you need to facilitate.

There are a vast amount of task management software tools available on the market. Some are part of complex project management suites, while others are dedicated only to keeping your tasks in order. You can find our favorite ones below:

  • Trello offers a flexible and visual way to organize anything with anyone. Trello is organized in boards inspired by Kanban methodology. You can add lists to the board and cards to the lists. Each card can have individual checklists, uploaded documents or pictures and discussion in the form of comments. You can easily invite your co-workers to sign up for their own free Trello account. Instead of using emails and instant messages, you can use Trello to communicate. You may create one board for each of your projects or just have one comprehensive board with multiple lists to keep yourself on track. Trello add-ons help you power up your boards: for example you can display all your to-dos in a calendar view.
  • Todoist is more specialized towards personal organization in their free plan: you can compile tasks and subtasks into simple lists which is practical to use for a specific workshop. One of the handy features is that it tracks progress over time and gives you insight into your personal productivity trends. The app monitors how many tasks are your completing and gives karma points as rewards for accomplishing them.
  • If you have a bigger project you may want to use a more specialized project management software to help your team collaborate without getting flooded by emails. Asana is an intuitive task-management system that works best for teams seeking real-time interaction and its basic version is free for up to 15 users.

All three of the tools above have easy-to-use mobile versions and allow syncing over devices. With either of them you can drop lengthy email threads and out-of-date spreadsheets so you can get your tasks organized and collaborate effectively with your co-facilitators. You can also export your tasks to your calendar to make sure you don’t miss any to-do item.

Be sure to do your research and find the right combination of collaboration tools for your employees’ office toolbox.

Note taking apps and organizing information

Noting down various bits of information during a session design process is crucial: when talking with clients, jotting down some personal follow-up steps, saving useful links and so on. Having your trusted notebook with you is essential to register all the information you need in one place, but organizing, finding, and sharing your notes is easier when using digital tools.

Doing this online has never been easier. There are plenty of apps that allow you to write down thoughts, sync them across devices and share them with your colleagues. Below you can find the most popular options with somewhat different strengths:

  • Evernote lets you easily capture, organize, and find content from the Web. You can highlight text on the web, take screenshots, write your own notes, etc. The notes can be tagged, shared, formatted (to some extent) and you can even assign tasks to them. These are just some of its many features.
  • Microsoft OneNote has a similar set of features to Evernote but the approach in organizing your notes is different. OneNote supports a more defined structure, as you can have several levels of notebooks, pages and subpages. It also provides richer formatting options, which are especially useful when doing creative work as it allows you to start typing anywhere on the page.
  • We mentioned Google Drive combined with Google Docs earlier as a full stack alternative for cloud storage and document management. Simply setting up your structure of folders – e.g. one that allows you to structure your documents by client or date – can be a simple alternative to store all your notes and other documents and have everything synced online to multiple devices.
  • Notion is a sophisticated note-taking workspace app with a sleek design. It offers a highly flexible interface for taking notes and creating to-do lists, letting you organize your tasks into tables, kanban boards, and calendar views. This flexibility is one of its biggest advantage and disadvantage: if you like to tinker and tweak with settings to adjust the your Notion workspace to completely fit your needs then you may fall in love with it. But if you just want a simple platform to take notes and record to-do-s you might find it difficult to navigate at first.

Although they differ in the way they work, what they have in common is the most important advice for using any software for taking notes and getting your documents organised: you actually need to remember to use it. These tools really become useful when all your notes are in the same place and you can use powerful search and sharing features.

Meeting planner and agenda planning

If you are planning to facilitate a group session that spans more than a couple of hours and you have different workshop activities, theory blocks, team building games and energizer activities, then you likely need to have some sort of agenda to plan the sequence of these activities.

A simple pen and paper might just do the trick for you, but what if you’re working together with some other people on the agenda or simply need to share it with your client? If you want to avoid having dozens of different versions of Excel or Word files, then an online editable agenda might come handy.

Workshop planning in SessionLab
Workshop planning in SessionLab
  • SessionLab is an online workshop planner tool for anyone who is doing facilitated sessions. It provides an interface that is designed for the flexible and iterative process of building up a workshop or meeting agenda – making your process design work a real ‘flow experience’. As you build up your session outline, all the various modules and exercises you enter into the system become searchable and reusable by you. Color-coding helps you to get a balanced interaction mix for your session to keep your participants engaged. When looking for new inspiration, you can find more than 500 workshop activities in a public library of facilitation methods and a set of expert-designed complete workshop templates as well. SessionLab also allows you to share the workshop plans with your clients or colleagues and work together on them simultaneously. And yes, we’re blowing our own horn, but mainly because we love using it.
  • Google Sheets: The spreadsheet application of Google has become a worthwhile online alternative to Microsoft Excel. So if you are a hardcore spreadsheets fan loving to tinker with rows and columns to turn them into workshop timetables then Google Sheets offers you most of the features you need for creating and sharing session agendas. Real-time commenting and revision tracking are highly useful for the collaborative work and integration with Google Drive cloud storage allows you to easily find content in your sessions in your Drive.

Engagement tools & Meeting Facilitation Software

Have you ever run a workshop or meeting where you wanted to quickly poll the opinions of all your participants? Workshops and training sessions are meant to be interactive, two-way communication helps to keep your group engaged.

As long as the size of your group allows, you might use plenary conversations so each participant is able to share and elaborate their opinion on the subject at hand. You might even use some structured meeting facilitation method like a ‘flashlight’ or one-breath feedback to effectively survey qualitative insights from your group members.

However, there might be some scenarios where the live interaction gets difficult. Imagine running a large group session with dozens of participants. Or a virtual session. Having a meeting facilitation software that allows your participants to easily interact with each other can be useful in such cases – for instance to easily poll your participants and visualize the results.

This is where classroom engagement tools come into the picture where we will focus on three solutions:

  • Stormz, a digital application aimed for professional facilitators, enables you to design and facilitate collective intelligence sessions to generate innovative ideas, choose the most promising ones, turn them into tangible solutions and make informed decisions. You can use Stormz to ask you participants to give their input on questions you generate in the app, generate ideas and make collective decisions directly from their laptop, tablet or mobile phone. The free version allows 3 participants per workshop. Stormz also offers a unique on-site solution to manage large group workshops involving hundreds of participants by using their portable Stormz Box device which provides secure and reliable local network infrastructure for collaborative workshops at any venue.
  • A new online tool dedicated to online meeting facilitation, MeetButter is full of features to make the delivery of online workshops or courses easy. With in-built polls, a speaker queue to enable equal participation, and an in-built time tracker, MeetButter can effectively enable virtual facilitators. MeetButter is currently free and while it plans to introduce a premium version in the future, they aim to always have a free plan in place.
  • Axis digitises workshop facilitation and participation: it allows you to build up a workshop from pre-defined blocks (such as brainstorming and decision making methods) and then effectively run that workshop with remote participants. It embeds a host of proven Design Thinking and Agile methodologies across five best practice phases enabling you to quickly create a customised workshop. Signing in is easy for participants: they simply enter the unique workshop code and then they are guided through a step-by-step journey with clear instructions.
  • Mentimeter allows you to create questions (such as multiple choice questions) in their web application and participants can answer them from their mobile devices. The great thing is that you can instantly visualize everyone’s opinion and display the results real-time to the group. It helps your participants to feel engaged, which is especially important for a large group workshop. It works really well on mobile devices with a streamlined user experience and the free version allows you to create two polls and five quiz questions per presentation.
  • also offers a participant polling functionality and a mobile app for your participants. The free version allows you to have 3 polls per event. Similarly to Mentimeter, it also supports Q&A, so your meeting participants can post their questions at any time via the mobile application.

Online design tools

When running sprints or design workshops, being able to collaboratively work on visual assets for product and marketing initiatives can often mean the difference between a productive or unproductive session. These free online design tools can be a huge benefit to your live and virtual workshops. Let’s dig in!

  • For facilitators wanting to create visual assets for their online workshops or participants working together on new materials during a workshop, Canva is a great tool that makes creating beautiful designs easy. Canva really shines when it comes to ease of use and the fact it enables less design-savvy individuals and teams to create something attractive quickly and easily. The free version of Canva includes real-time collaboration, 5GB of cloud storage, and hundreds of thousands of free images and graphics to help you create great designs!
  • Figma is a great design tool that works to help designers and collaborators create and test prototypes together. Figma lives in the cloud, and so designs and prototypes are updated and ready for everyone who needs them instantly. With some unique and interesting features like the Arc tool and Vector Networks, Figma is well worth checking out for any folks involved in virtual design workshops. Figma has a free plan that offers unlimited viewers, 2 editors and 3 projects and is great if you need to work together on visual assets as a part of a small team.
  • Invision is a design tool that is well suited to remote teams wishing to work on product or feature prototypes collaboratively online. It features a whole suite of features to support every part of the design process – freehand mode is great for commenting and ideating on a design, while Studio is awesome for creating and showing off prototypes with animations and interactions. Invision’s free plan is suitable for individuals and small teams, and supports up to 3 active users working on up to 3 documents and unlimited freehands.

Bonus: Tools are only part of the solution and while they can make your work easier, the quality of your sessions will come from a thoughtfully designed set of activities. Check out our post on various free online resources for workshop activities.

All these online tools are worth checking out, and hopefully they will save you time and make your facilitation related work go even more smoothly.

Which is your favorite online tool from the list?

Let us know in the comments, and also if you missed something on the list!


  1. Very useful post.
    Not strictly speaking a tool, however it would be great if some resources could be shared for short films and/or amusing intermezzos to demonstrate a point etc. Youtube is great but there must be more websites out there.

    1. Robert Cserti March 24, 2015 as 9:28 am

      Glad to see you find the post useful!

      I fully agree, it would be so great to have an inventory of useful videos that can be applied in training setting. Besides YouTube, there are also a couple of good resources hidden at, e.g.:

      I hope to discover some more!

  2. Gwendolyn Kolfschoten December 4, 2015 as 9:58 am

    Meetingsphere, only free the first month, but really useful for brainstorming, clustering, voting. you can choose to work anonymous to collect even more feedback

  3. Gwendolyn Kolfschoten December 4, 2015 as 9:59 am

    another one is Mqlicker, audience response system, free and allows you to collect votes or comments from a large audience, then display results in a graph or tag cloud

  4. Thembisa Funani April 14, 2017 as 6:37 pm

    Thank you for this.

  5. Indeed, a well written post. I would like to add LearningStone, the online platform for trainers, which is great for supporting blended learning. The free version is fully functional but limited to one “groupspace” with 20 participants. see

    1. Robert Cserti December 9, 2017 as 1:11 pm

      Thank you for sharing about LearningStone, Michiel! Blended learning tools might also be a good topic to explore deeper in another article.

  6. Hi Robert! Mural should be in this list, besides it is not free. Powerful tool!

    1. Thank you for the suggestion, Mural is indeed an excellent tool for online brainstorming and visual collaboration. (If they had a free version, they would be definitely included in the ‘Online whiteboards’ section). Let us know if you stumble upon any other useful free tools!

  7. Some great suggestions and far more efficient and engaging for people in a workshop when ideas are seen and managed in real time. Many of the tools here have a freemium that don’t always mean you can run a full workshop.

    Here are some of the tools I use – customisable templates for a whole range of workshop facilitation techniques with voting, prioritisation and anonymity settings. Works on ipads and phones too. Super useful tool designed for group facilitation. – a neat and cute way for online community building with a great bandwith as it is used for VOIP and online gamers but can be used to create private sessions. – great for face to face and online retrospective meetings with automated grouping of ideas and really easy to use. Great for continuous improvement.

    1. Robert Cserti January 8, 2019 as 9:57 pm

      Thank you Jeremy, these are great suggestions, I will consider adding these to the list of tools at the next update!

  8. I would also add MURAL to the suite of online whiteboards – they have a feature set built specifically for facilitators doing remote sessions.

    1. Robert Cserti August 8, 2019 as 7:08 am

      Thank you for pointing it out, Mary, this looks like a really useful solution for facilitators! (I would add to the list without any hesitation if it were having a free version available without time limitation)

      1. Shayne Smart March 12, 2020 as 4:26 pm

        Hi Robert, nice you launched this article. Mural has an extended 90 day trial on at the moment, so it’s essentially free until the peak of infection.

        1. Robert Cserti March 20, 2020 as 10:07 pm

          Thank you for mentioning this, Shayne, amended the article with Mural :-)

  9. Great post!

    I might add to the list of classroom engagement software, since it has no limit on number of slide, very similar to Mentimeter too!

    1. Thanks a lot for the suggestion, Donny!

  10. is another free video conferencing tool that is easy and fun to use, and loaded with great features. The free plan includes a custom URL meeting room, a personal dashboard, meeting recording, cloud storage, doc share, screen share, chat – the works. A great solution for small to medium sized businesses.

    1. Thank you for letting me know, Lisa!

  11. any suggestions of tools to use for a meeting that is taking place in a room with about 50 people whilst the facilitators are one line? With the current coronavirus problems, this is the situation we are in and the organisers would still like to have a remotely facilitated workshop. How do i go about running this?

    1. Robert Cserti March 20, 2020 as 10:08 pm

      Hi Mourijn! I’d suggest Stormz or Axis for this use case.

  12. = Whereby (new name beceause of trademark dispute) Website is

    1. Robert Cserti March 20, 2020 as 9:59 pm

      Thank you for the heads up, corrected :-)

  13. Maria Baeza April 9, 2020 as 2:27 am

    Honestly speaking, this blog is full of information and it is very helpful to all users. Survey tools, Collaboration tools, Engagement tools all are the very needful source for the workshop. After reading your blog i think i got all the information. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Robert Cserti April 10, 2020 as 1:59 pm

      You’re welcome, Maria!

  14. P . Rajasekhar April 25, 2020 as 5:35 am


  15. Hi, this is a really useful article! Just wondered if you had any thoughts on engagement tools with regards to avoiding bias/social norming if used for in decision making scenarios?
    i.e. if there are 3 options and option 2 is clearly getting the most support, someone might try tactically voting against/for it, depending on their opinion.
    Do any of the programmes offer an option that only reveals the poll/voting outcomes after everyone has submitted a vote?

    1. Robert Cserti May 7, 2020 as 9:37 pm

      That’s a really good question, Chloe – group bias can be an issue with dot voting (and similar processes), especially when participants can assign multiple votes.

      There is a great critique of this process here by Jason Diceman (who used to be the ‘Dotmocracy Guy), offering a better alternative called ‘Feedback Frames’:

    2. Hello! With Mentimeter you can hide results while people vote! Hit ”H” for hide!

  16. Hey we also made these tools and tips which include freely downloadable Facilitation cards:

  17. Julia Hoover June 22, 2020 as 7:11 pm

    Thank you for this resource, I appreciate that it focuses on free tools. Any idea how to approach the privacy/data collection issue? Some of our participants are wary of using things that can take their data.

    1. Robert Cserti June 26, 2020 as 12:00 pm

      Thank you for the question, Julia!
      Majority of these tools that are participant-facing, or in which you would add any personal data of participants, are GDPR compliant and also offer Data Protectional Agreements – these two aspects are often enough to make everyone content that their data is handled properly.

  18. Thank you for this write up

  19. Positivitati August 7, 2020 as 12:25 pm

    Thank you for posting this! Very Useful!

  20. I’m new and yet to start my first workshop. Thank you for sharing these information. I’m so grateful. God bless you, Robert.

  21. One ting I can add is the website It’s a simple and beautiful online timer that let’s you track the time in meetings!

  22. Hi! Thanks so much for the useful article! I use Miro , and I have been pleased with it.
    if you are using online whiteboards you’ll be writing a lot every day – I would recommend getting a proper graphics tablet for that purpose.
    I am using the XP-Pen Star G640 : Writing Tablet to interface with the Miro whiteboard. Pen tablets are not essential but they do make writing online much easier and faster than with your mouse or trackpad.

  23. any Suggestion for a virtual “timer”?

    1. Thank you for the question, Barbara – this one is a neat virtual timer:

    2. is also an interesting alternative: it is a sequential timer that helps you time your complete meeting agenda.

  24. There’s also AHA SLIDES
    It allows you to interact with the audience
    It’s great and have wide arrange of paid plans

  25. Wooden ship kits October 15, 2020 as 8:44 am

    That’s really nice post. I appreciate your skills. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Hi, like this article, very useful. I use many of the tools mentioned. I am facilitating some workshops and need folks to sign up for a session. Each session will have a limit of people who can participate. Is there an app or software that allows for that, e.g., shows session and number of slots available so people can sign up.

  27. Thanks for the great article!

  28. Ankita Jaiswal March 13, 2021 as 4:30 pm

    Thanks for the valuable information. Some of them were unknown. Keep your article flooded with such true information

  29. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free

  30. Well, this got me thinking what other workouts are good for those of us who find ourselves on the road or have limited equipment options.

  31. Hi Robert, many thanks for the work done in putting in one place all the available resources. Kind regards from Albania

  32. The post is absolutely fantastic! Lots of great information and inspiration both of which we all need! Also, like to admire the time and effort you put into your blog.

  33. Hey there,
    super helpful post, thank you for that! Mentimeter is definitely a regular at our team meetings.

    We’ve recently discovered as a tool. It’s still in beta, so the features are limited, but the engangement at team building activities at our recent summer party was great and all the different team members worked with each other.

  35. This is really informative information!! Great Ideas!!
