Jackie says Zoom is her playground. As well as using it for training courses and meetings, she also uses it to host coffee mornings, family lunches and evening parties. In line with her tendency to gameify everything, she’s used polls to run quizzes, the whiteboard to play drawing games, breakout rooms for guessing games, screen share for puzzles, and the chat panel for storytelling. It leads to maximum engagement for participants.
If your people are working from home, or based in separate geographic locations, it’s not easy to get them together for a group training course on-site.
Don’t imagine that a course that’s delivered remotely is any kind of compromise. You and your team can still learn how to write better copy, without the need to travel.
Jackie has trained people around the world via digital technology, and achieves the same level of engagement and results as if they were all in the same physical space.
“It was really well adapted to video, felt like it had been set up for that delivery and not that it was a Plan B approach at all.”
