Topics I Speak on for Virtual Training Heros

Perfect for learning difficult-to-teach skills like sales.

I’ve spoken at 100+ conferences since 2006. You’ll get ideas and activities exclusively designed to engage virtual participants. So they’re learning, not checking their email.

“Session was great! As a trainer for a global company, I’m often on WebEx and asked to give training over a live meeting. I hate doing them because 2-way communication is difficult over the phone and I felt they were so ineffective they were really just a waste of everyone’s time. I now have some great ideas on how to make them worthwhile, and can’t wait to go use them and try to “break” WebEx! Best hands-on session of the conference!”
Conference Attendee
“My team felt uncomfortable in the virtual classroom before Kassy’s training. All of their focus was on the new technology. They stopped being engaging trainers. Instead, my seasoned trainers felt nervous. For us, the result has been that our people are prepared to train virtually. They’re confident. They understand why people might not interact and how to fix it. And, most importantly, everyone in our organization is getting the same great training experience whether virtually or in-person.”
