Webinar: Training and Facilitating When You’re Not in the Room

March 19, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm

Join the Maine Association of Nonprofits and Andy Robinson for this upcoming webinar: Training and Facilitating When You’re Not in the Room

In nearly every workplace or organization — nonprofit, for-profit, government — somebody needs to train somebody. More and more, this work happens remotely: via webinar, video conference, online meetings, and other platforms.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Why webinars fail — and how to fix them
  • Five tips for engaging remote learners
  • Tools for facilitating remote meetings via Zoom and other platforms
  • When the group is together — and the trainer works remotely

This is an interactive webinar — yes, that’s possible — so come prepared to participate.

Intended Audience
This is a practical learning opportunity for nonprofit staff and volunteers. Experienced facilitators, trainers, and consultants are welcome, as well as people who are moving into these roles.
