Maddy & McKenzie founded First Class Facilitation in April of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic first shut down the Greater Toronto Area. Aiming to make online meetings easier, they started providing training and facilitation support to adjudicators in virtual litigation. Word of their work quickly spread throughout the industry, and demand increased for not just virtual ligation facilitations but virtual events of all types which led to crafting their services into a full suite of virtual event services.
As more clients came in the door, new team members were added to our roster. It’s been our mission since day 1 to connect people across the world. We are constantly working on innovative ways to keep our clients connected in a virtual world.
How We Help
We’re committed to bringing people together. We understand that live, in-person meetings are still the favourite, but we’re here to ease the troubles of the meetings and events that are hosted hybrid and virtually. Large conferences, legal proceedings, corporate training, culture events, team updates, even celebrations of life can be conducted in a virtual or hybrid format. We’ve already done it before and we know the best way to make these types of events a success.
Virtual and hybrid events can be difficult to plan so work with us and we’ll be by your side from the initial concept to the closing remarks!
Both Maddy and McKenzie have always believed that large companies have the power to make long-lasting changes in society. There have been far too many corporations who have negatively impacted the world we live in and that’s why FCCF is committed to making positive impacts in the world.
During our second year of business, we put together our first initiative to give back called Empowered By Devices. The goal of this drive was to collect older, used devices and repurpose them for Afghan refugees in Canada who fled their homeland due to the current state of affairs. The drive has seen much success, collecting over 100 devices in total (valued between $30 – $40k CAD) and assisting over 50 refugee families.
FCCF is still a very young company and it is our commitment to continue to give back in any way we can – even if it’s something as small as using eco-friendly servers to host our website!
