Maximizing Virtual Mediums Training Overview

Show Transcript

Are you one of these people that thinks onsite training is the best and only way to train? And if you do, that's fine. I'm not here to persuade you or to ever sell you but now with the, really explosion of technology, there's a lot of really good ways to virtually train. And in some ways virtual training is actually better than the onsite. It's also cheaper in lots of cases, especially with us and you don't have to pay for instructor travel.

Our virtual class is just like our onsite class. They're both customized and instructor led. So two things to start thinking about with a virtual class. One, the convenience of it. Your team is able to learn on their own time at their own pace. They can use different devices to digest the material. And the other thing to consider here, is retention. You're getting it in bite sized pieces over time versus sitting in a room for a day or two and learning that way. So if you think that your team's learning style would be more conducive to a virtual platform, give us a call. We're happy to set up a quick two or three minute demo for you and show you how great our virtual platform is and see if we can put together some information for you.

Why Improve Your Team’s Presentation Skills?

Strong presentation skills help establish a professional and productive workplace and lead to both business and individual success. In our presentations courses, your team will learn strategies to engage their audience, use visuals effectively, and drive their audience to the appropriate conclusion.

Clearer Communication

Clearer, More Engaging Presentations

Your team will learn techniques to engage their audience and present their ideas so that they’re easy for the audience to digest.

More Effective Communication

By learning how to connect with audiences — whether peers, supervisors, or customers — your team will build confidence and deliver information so that it’s impactful.

Improved Audience Buy-In

When your team understands that there’s more to presenting than simply talking, they’ll be better able to get audience buy-in.
