Hybrid and remote workers are changing how organizations train their staff. The potential for disengagement and losing fundamental connections is too high. The solution lies in elevating the experience from passive to immersive and participatory.

In this interactive session, Bernadette Burke, President and Executive Learning Strategist, will be joined by members of the Brella team, David Less (Creative Director), Joshua Stroud (Technical Director and Senior Producer), Caetlin Williams (Event Production Technician), and Mark Rochon (Instructional Designer), to share creative and production processes for engaging these harder-to-engage learners.

You’ll learn tips on how to:
  1. Curate and package your training to reflect your organization’s brand and culture.
  2. Deliver live hybrid and virtual trainings in Zoom/Microsoft Teams using visual branding, motion graphics, gamification, and off-the-shelf virtual tools for connecting learners.
  3. Reinforce your message beyond the initial training and encourage continuous learning.

By the end, you’ll have a foundation of tips and techniques to enhance your next crucial training experience.
