SW Conference Webinar Series: Addressing the Challenges of Virtual Collaboration

July 28, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

The COVID pandemic has forced most of us to live and work remotely. What if this is a tipping point to a more permanent shift in the way we work? Remote work is here to say for the foreseeable future. If we want to be effective and remain healthy we will have to quickly go from remote amateurs to professionals. This webinar provides practical best practices to present yourself professionally, lead effective meetings, and most importantly – how to protect your health and sanity.
