Virtual training and webinars are unfortunately known for their technical breakdowns. Ask anyone what they dislike about learning online and the answer is usually that it's boring, it's not engaging, and there are too many technical problems. The first 10 minutes of live online sessions is often spent on struggles to get everyone connected and making the audio work. Identifying someone to be your virtual producer (or someone who performs that role) will transform not only the way you run your online training, but also how you and your attendees feel about them. 

Producers help every aspect of virtual training run effectively starting with the technology itself, assisting the attendees as needed, and allowing trainers and presenters to focus on the learning experience.

Attend this energetic & engaging live session and you'll learn these plus much, much more:
  • Identify the different types of producers and when to use each depending on the virtual session being delivered
  • Determine the necessary skills to develop people (including existing virtual trainers) to be effective producers
  • Create an action plan to ensure the production of your virtual sessions are engaging every time
