This kind of professional development can be successful virtually!
I've been presenting virtual seminars since 2016 - long before Coronavirus/COVID-19 forced everyone to use this format.
You have the choice of a webinar (information download) or seminar (interaction and implementation).
Recordings can be included so that team members who cannot participate live will still have access to all of the important knowledge the rest of their team gained.
Click on these screenshots for larger views or view sample videos from virtual presentations here.
Your options include:
- Onsite or Virtual Seminars
- Onsite or Virtual Seminar and Consulting Combo
- Ongoing Support
- Lunch and Learn Webinar Series
- Department and Individual Consulting
We'll discuss your challenges and objectives to determine which option is best for your team's situation.
If you're wondering what other types of time management topics can be presented, here's a sampling from my on-demand (non-customized modules) library.
Your company's seminar will be completely customized, right down to the type of delivery and the subject matter. Activities will be determined by results of discovery research and the jobs/positions of the participants (examples: customer service reps vs architects; emerging leaders vs team leaders vs department heads).
Why should your company’s productivity be one of your top focuses?
- Busy professionals lose up to three hours per day from email overload, distractions, interruptions and unproductive meetings.
- An employee earning $50,000 per year will cost your company $12,500 in lost productivity time in one year.
- Over the course of five years, that one employee can cost the company over $60,000 in lost time.
- If you have 10 employees, that’s $600,000 in lost productivity time.
100 employees? That’s $6,000,000 lost.
- Time is money. If you don’t want to lose any more of either, addressing your employees’ productivity should be at the top of your list.
