ATDps: March 2021 Virtual Member Event
Making Virtual Training Engaging Again
EVENT DESCRIPTIONHow do you move beyond the virtual PowerPoint presentation, awkward silence, and open Q&A with more awkward silence? So many of us have experienced this exact scenario and leave feeling unmotivated or disengaged. As Talent Development subject matter experts, you want to avoid this style of virtual training, but how? Join us this month to learn what’s working for others, engage in thoughtful activities, and gain insight into creating an engaging virtual training to ensure your audience is captivated and retains the information presented. Let’s make your next virtual training enthralling!
