Some of the key themes touched on last week include:
The importance of having a robust toolkit of virtual engagement strategies. The days of “talking heads” are done, and so are the days of the Death By Conference Call (check out my posts from 2014 on this). Most people in the remote space EXPECT as interactive a conversation as possible – whether the engagement is via chat, voice, annotation or polls.
The importance of creating a clear business case. What’s important about this topic? What is the cost of not doing something? What is the cost of building capacity, or training people, or….?
In such a volatile business context, one of the only certainties is that virtual conversations and remote work is here to stay. To build up your toolkit of virtual engagement strategies be sure to check out the 5 Week Virtual Academy I am kicking off this Friday. We’ll be exploring the following topics:
- What’s your virtual offer
- Designing an Engaging Virtual program
- Building a Business Case for your Virtual Event, Training or Conversation
- Masterful Delivery
- Remote Team Needs
We’ll be taking a deep dive through on-demand modules and live sessions. I hope that you will consider joining us.
With best wishes,
