Many skilled classroom trainers and presenters struggle with participant and audience engagement when they move to an online format. Often, they wonder if the people on the other side of cyberspace engaged and paying attention, or checking email, working on other projects, or otherwise somewhat checked out? At the end of the day, those new to the online format are never sure if their message had its intended effect. So what’s the solution? Transform!: Converting In-Person Training Programs and Presentations to the Virtual World.
This hands-on virtual workshop focuses on the techniques, tips, and tricks online training facilitators and presenters can use to hook a group early and keep them involved throughout a training program or presentation. The workshop relies heavily on the program participants’ existing content. Together, we will work to make these materials engaging in a virtual environment.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
Confront the competition for attention in the virtual world.
Articulate their training or presentation’s benefit in a single sentence.
Succinctly state their message(s).
Create framing and reframing statements to focus their message.
Decide their desired engagement level.
Adjust their design to communicate expectations and establish a dialogue.
Turn “tell” information into “ask” discussions.
Leverage pattern interrupts.
Choose appropriate interactions: discussions, chats, polls, drawings, and votes.

“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
