Virtual Workshops

Do you log on to webinars and immediately start multitasking knowing that you are in for an hour-long one-sided presentation? Does a session like that really change what you do in the workplace? Are you ready for something different?

Our virtual workshops are synchronous online training sessions designed so that you not only learn about a new skill but you also learn how to do it. The courses are hands on and highly interactive. From the moment you log on, you will be involved in activities and experiences that will have you practising and improving your communication skills. Each of our virtual workshops includes pre-workshop reading and proof-of-learning assignments.

If your group is geographically dispersed, a virtual workshop can be a great option for you. Virtual workshops allow learners to participate in their own office without any travel costs. You can log into the Adobe Connect virtual classroom at your own computer in your own space. Each session is only 90-minutes long, so your regular workday isn’t disrupted. 

Contact us today to discuss how we can provide a customized virtual workshop for your organization focusing on the communication needs of your learners.
