Becoming a Zoom Guru

Thursday, September 17, 2020

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET 


$20 for General Admission

$10 for Education, Government, and Non-Profit employees

The sudden, massive shift to a predominantly virtual environment has left many professionals scrambling to learn how to collaborate effectively with customers and teammates. Although Zoom quickly became a popular online platform for meetings, adoption was soon followed by the realization that individuals, teams, and organizations needed to raise their game. 'Good enough' usually isn't good enough for long.


Participants will acquire essential skills as a means to:

  • make the most of online meetings with customers and partners,

  • strengthen collaboration with internal teams, and

  • reduce the frustration that stems from a lack of knowledge.


As remote work is likely to be a long-term reality, using online meeting platforms like Zoom is now an essential skill.

The Art of Visual (and Virtual) Collaboration

Thursday, September 3, 2020

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." 

- George Bernard Shaw

We've all experienced the frustrating and sometimes disastrous results that arise from a simple miscommunication. One of the biggest culprits is an over-reliance on words alone that too often creates the illusion of shared understanding.

Visuals have the power to save us. And we’ve known this since we were kids. “Show & Tell” started with showing, not telling.

Visual Representation → Clarity → Shared Understanding

It might surprise you how easy it is to significantly reduce miscommunication by incorporating simple tools and techniques into regular activities. We promise to deliver new ways of thinking, easily implementable tools, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals. After just 90 minutes you'll be able to:

  • Conduct more productive meetings, which leads to fewer meetings

  • Accelerate progress on projects and initiatives

  • Avoid costs associated with solving the wrong problem


The number of participants is limited to optimize the learning experience, so secure your spot before they are gone.
