Many of our coaches are trained actors and all are specifically trained at delivering webinars. They are known for their charismatic delivery, and they know how to leverage their stories, language, voice, expressions and gestures so attendees pay attention.
We ensure that whether somebody joins via telepresence, solo or as part of a group, they are set for a great experience with supportive technology which won’t break down.
As standard our webinars are managed by a technical producer who is responsible for making sure everything works correctly and all audio-visual elements are cued at the right time (polling, audiovisual, logging in etc).
We use every tool at our disposal to mimic the type of interactivity participants get in a classroom experience in order to keep them engaged and attentive, including but not limited to – video clips, chat boxes, polls and Q&As.
Rather than just being virtual versions of classroom courses, our webinars are specifically designed for webinar delivery.
The new Working Voices webinar experience will be formulated through two component parts.
Our webinars generally run from one to two hours, which is the optimum amount of time for people to concentrate and embed knowledge in a virtual learning session. We encourage participants to log in from a quiet, private environment free of distractions.
