VIRTUAL EDUCATION PROGRAM: Riding the Wave of Change: The Hi-Tech Human Connection

June 16, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Virtual Meeting

Do you have a critical client presentation that’s now being done as a video conference? Are your online company meetings less than helpful? Is your shortlist interview still happening with the “small” difference that it’s now a conference call? How do you make human connections via technology? We’re all adapting to the “new normal” of how to conduct business without being together in person. Teams are scattered, clients use different video-conferencing platforms, and bandwidth is at a premium. Now, more than ever, it’s critical to be intentional about making those human connections. It’s all about helping your listener stay focused so they get what they need!

Who Should Attend:
Firm Principals
Marketing Director
Marketing Manager
Marketing Staff
Business Development Director

Communications Coordinator
HR Coordinator

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how to help your listener stay engaged with you.
  2. Discover your biggest challenge to make that happen!
  3. Get practical do’s — and don’ts! — for conference and video calls.
  4. See demos of how to best use visuals.
  5. Experience how essential body language is. Yes, it’s true! Even when you can’t see the people you’re talking with, body language is enormously helpful for them and for you.
