How to Turn Video Conferences into Great Experiences

$15 for the Live Session; $25 for the Live Session + Recording; $15 for the Recording Only

Video conferencing is supposed to be the new normal equivalent of office meetings, team meetings, fun meetings and all the other collegial aspects of in-person in-office work. But for many people participation in video conferences is a downer, leaving them feeling more alone and depressed than ever. This webinar will provide practical advice on ways to make video meetings more positive and successful for you and your colleagues.

You will learn:

  • How to manage your own intangible body language communications online
  • How to lead productive meetings
  • How to be a valued participant
  • Tips for successful video conference participation

In addition, this will be an interactive session in which participants will have the opportunity to learn and chat with each other in Zoom breakout rooms. To make the most of your experience, come ready to turn your camera on. We want you live - not hiding behind your avatar!
