    Virtual Organizing with Ellia Ryan, The Potential Center - CEU-eligible


    • ·         What Virtual Organizing is and how it differs from onsite organizing
    • ·         When Virtual Organizing works and when it doesn’t
    • ·         What it takes to be a Virtual Organizer
    • ·         Training resources for becoming a Virtual Organizer

    Ellia originally trained to be a teacher but moved into marketing instead. Eventually she found her way back to teaching – in the early 00’s, she provided group training in communication and presentation skills, leadership, and team-based problem-solving; she was also an executive coach.

    Before that, Ellia had a long career working in nonprofits, managing hundreds of fundraising and communication projects and leading teams, helping them organize their work to be more productive. 

    Ellia made the transition to professional organizing in 2015, and coaches people to be more organized in both their physical and their mental spaces. She currently splits her time between onsite and virtual organizing.

    The years that Ellia spent learning about and refining organizing principles and systems contributed to her ability to be effective in even the most stressful circumstances. Case in point: she recently organized, staged, listed, and sold her home in just 10 days and not a tear was shed.

    Geographically, Ellia lived in the UK for a good part of her adult life. When she left England, she came to Seattle by way of Mexico, as a certified teacher of English as a foreign language.

    Here in Seattle, Ellia is an active member of the NAPO chapter, and is on the NAPO National Education Committee.
