HOW will BusinessMind support you?

After many months with the corona pandemic, we all are well acquainted with remote working and we are quite familiar with the most-common online meeting tools.

However, many still feel insecure when it comes to the handling of new or additional tools and the technical set up that comes with it. Little experience with moderation oder little moderation skills and missing know-how when it comes to interactive methods might also raise concerns.

With the BusinessMind support, these insecurities belong to the past!

We guarantee the professional facilitation of your online meeting/workshop

As experienced EU project managers we are familiar with the EU terminology, the challenges of EU projects and the expectations of the European Commission.

We have been facilitating participatory events nationally and internationally for many years and can look back on countless creative results and satisfied clients.

By applying tried-and-tested interactive methods and creative tools we elicit the knowledge and the respective expertise of your participants, thereby guaranteeing smart, creative results.

Feeling part of a team with joint goals and actively engaging participants guarantee a joint “big project picture”.

Moderation with a strong training aspect – Upon request we improve your project team’s skills and enable them to successfully facilitate future meetings/workshops themselves. By being actively involved in designing the workshop (learning by doing) they will not only be able to handle but to apply tools and methods in a goal-oriented way.

CO2 & time resources Calculation Example

Imagine you have a project meeting in Brussels with about 30 partners who come from all over Europe. On average, each person consumes about 230kg CO2 for the flight alone! The journey from the place of residence to the hotel, including waiting times at the airport and transfer, takes about 6 hours.

1 person = 230kg, 6 hours

And for 30 people that’s = approx. 7 tons, 180 hours

7 tons CO2 and 180 hours for ONE meeting.


  • Investing unconsumed travel, hotel and event costs (rental, catering, technology) meaningfully in professional facilitation/moderation.
  • Save time & nerves and still achieve the best results while at the same time protecting the environment.
  • Manage time resources more efficiently, thereby reducing organisational efforts and the CO2 footprint.
  • Social interaction with project partners in small groups, interactive methods, and activation.

In our large and extremely complex H2020 project, the General Assembly was coming up and we knew that such a meeting with over 40 participants online would be quite a challenge.

We asked Birgit and Nicole to facilitate our meeting, because their background, experience and know-how were a perfect fit. It was one of our best decisions: Not only are they wonderful facilitators, they also play any complicated online tool with ease and elegance. And one thing is guaranteed with the two of them: Even online, there is no shortage of fun.
