Make Webinar Learners Happy! - Add Socialization and Conversations to Boost Learning in Virtual Training

Wed, Sep 16, 2020 at 11AM - 12PM Pacific / 2PM - 3PM Eastern
In this time of pandemic and lockdowns, we see the sudden growth of WFH (Work From Home) workers. The increased level of social isolation has led most people to loneliness and frustrations. Consequently, it affects the workers’ productivity and their quality of life. 

One of the common links between workers with other teams and leaders are their webinars and virtual sessions. However, the methods in ZOOM, WebEx, Adobe Connect and others only aggravate the “loneliness” of the learners. The presentation techniques are impersonal, stressful, time wasters, boring, and irrelevant. 
Adding socialization and meaningful conversations in webinars and virtual training does wonders in engaging learners and increasing their learning experiences. However, many are either unaware of this critical design and delivery skill or they just find it too difficult to implement. 
In this webinar, you will learn:
  • What is the “loneliness” effect in webinars and how they impact performance
  • How to conduct a survey to discover the “loneliness” traps in your sessions
  • How to deconstruct your design and enhance socialization and conversations
  • How to apply the 7 Fundamental Personalization Webinar Techniques
  • Experience actual socialization and conversation models during the webinar.
And, obtain the article on Why Virtual Trainers Need Socialization in Webinars.
