Interact & Engage!

Whether it’s an online meeting, a presentation via webinar, or live online training,

engagement is the main question on everyone’s mind: Will it be worth my time to

attend, or will it be an opportunity to check email instead? Online meeting technology

is powerful and has made it easy to connect with people from anywhere in the world at

any time, yet L&D professionals often still struggle with getting everyone to interact.

Interaction is the answer to successful engagement and using the features of the

platform is the answer to interaction. However, the features alone do not engage the

participants. It is what you choose to do with those features that will make the

difference in your next virtual training, webinar, or meeting.

During this session, you will learn what you can do to be successful in the virtual

environment and avoid having everyone ask for a recording or a copy of the slides five

minutes into your next virtual event. You’ll analyze the activities demonstrated and

brainstorm where the techniques could be applied to your virtual training programs.

You’ll explore the specific challenges of managing the technology, and brainstorm

solutions to the engagement problems you are likely to experience with your live online

attendees when technical problems arise. Activities are the key to your success.

Through them you’ll learn to manage the technology, get attendees to actively

engage, and help presenters have a great time too!
