What are Pop-up Sessions?

SoulUp's Pop-ups are self-contained, single session group discussions led by world-class facilitators.

✔️ Follow a specific agenda with tangible take-aways

✔️ Done in groups of 6-15 people

✔️ Each popup is a 75-minute video session

What happens in a Pop-Up session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Core discussion: Your facilitator will follow a set agenda. For each discussion point, some context is set and then a free-flowing conversation with the group follows.

Each discussion is supplemented with case studies, activities and exercises as relevant.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am I going to get out of this?

Pop-ups are engaging discussion sessions which provide a good mix of expert guidance and peer perspective.

They are also safe spaces to express and feel heard and understood.

Each pop-up is designed to provide actionable insights and takeaways while making participants feel the power of group work and community.
