  • Tue 16 Mar 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Working in remote teams has increased with globalisation, but has undergone a sudden and dramatic acceleration in our COVID-disrupted world. The effects of this have been more marked in the insurance industry, where remote working is less prevalent than in industries like IT. This makes it of critical importance to adapt to remote team working, both as managers and team members, understanding the different dynamics in a virtual world and the impact this can have on performance and wellbeing.

WEBINAR – Impactful Online Meetings

  • Thu 20 May 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Nick Thomas, Nick Thomas & Associates

The move to remote working and trading since March 2020 has presented many challenges to workers, and demands new ‘virtual’ skills and approaches. Research on sales in the new virtual environment shows that ‘buyers’ believe that many of the biggest mistakes made by sellers are in how they conduct virtual meetings. These mistakes are easily avoided. This 60 minutes session will show you how to demonstrate professionalism, and expertise from the first virtual interaction in setting up the meeting, through starting and then running the meeting.
