Guelph and District: 11.26.2020 - Avoid Death by Conference Call and Abolish Zoom Fatigue (Webinar)

Why now? The last seven months have seen a tsunami of professionals going remote, moving their professional and personal work to the virtual and digital ecosystem.  It's never been more important to create more engaging virtual conversations and digital dialogue for Learning, RESULTS and RELATIONSHIPS. 

Join author of Effective Virtual Conversations, Jennifer Britton, a seasoned remote leader herself who has been the CEO of a virtual business since 2004, and led remote teams throughout the 1990s and early 2000s for organizations including the United Nations. In this session we will:

- Examine core ingredients for effective virtual conversations;

- Explore three techniques for creating engaging digital dialogue which you can use in your next virtual meeting;

- Discover four principles for helping professionals and teams thrive in the remote space.
