In the wake of the developing COVID-19 pandemic, many companies and organizations are rapidly transitioning their workplaces and services to operate completely remotely. Thus the need to move meetings, trainings, and conferences online has become more pressing than ever. How can you meet and train more effectively in the virtual world?

Join Andy Robinson, Stephanie Lahar, and VBSR, as we discuss:

• Tools and techniques for facilitating remote meetings via Zoom and other platforms
• Why webinars fail — and how to fix them
• Tips for engaging remote meeting participants and learners
• When the group is together — and the trainer works remotely
