Clients are asking 'how to maintain training programmes?' when people will be working from home for the foreseeable future.
Remote/online or webinar training ticks a lot of boxes in the current climate.
As you know, being based in a remote corner of Scotland, I have a long history of running webinars and one-to-one coaching via videoconference, live streaming and even a YouTube channel. Embracing technology for delivery was an adaptation I began when I moved here over a decade ago.
Last week, I did a live training on 'Overcoming the Con Job' for a global FinTech client in central London, but with a difference.
While just under 30 people were in the room, we had 800 people live streaming from offices in Israel, the US, and beyond. Questions were managed by their live facilitator who laughed at how interactive it was saying ‘Okay, the questions are streaming in!’ which meant it was highly interactive. They didn’t consider cancelling the event, as they didn’t want their teams to miss the International Women’s Day event. Instead, we adapted to use the technology. I’m pleased to say the feedback was so strong, we’re already talking about how we can continue the momentum for their teams - but all remotely.
My Webinar Training is a solution which will maintain morale, aid virtual contact and comply with training standards while people are either self-isolating or working from home.
