URGENT: Moving Presentations Online: Coronavirus, Training Sessions, and Events
Richard Goring, Director, BrightCarbon
Coronavirus is causing businesses to cut or make drastic reductions in business travel, and to cancel or move conferences and events online. But conference organizers, training teams, and trainers still have jobs to do, so the question immediately becomes: How do you do your job when people can’t travel or meet face-to-face? It’s not a case of just taking your in-person content and presenting it virtually—if you’re to be effective, you need to understand how online presentations are different for the presenter, their slides, and their audience. Once you have a handle on that, it’s a case of figuring out how you can eliminate distraction for your audience and engage them with compelling content.

A Creator-Centric Approach to Reskilling
Jeff Fissel, VP of Solutions, PeopleFluent

In this Webinar, we will talk about how to engage employees in their own development by encouraging user-generated content and collaboration. But it doesn’t end there. These creator-centric approaches to reskilling will not only ensure employees become the nexus of driving learning but will also communicate the organization's commitment to changing the nature of how learning happens.
