Connecting Virtual to Reality: Using Virtual Engagement Tools To Better Connect 

If you had to guess, how many virtual meetings have you sat through in the past 4 months? For a lot of people it can feel like you are constanly on a Zoom Meeting or a webinar that consists of talking you through a powerpoint with no interaction. IT'S TIME TO CHANGE IT UP! 

Join us for a training on how we can use virtual platforms to better engage those in the work we do. Instead of becoming "Zoomed Out" lets learn how to use these virtual tools to keep your participants engaged in your message.
