an online course for leaders, facilitators, and trainers

Lame virtual meetings were acceptable when we were first grounded by COVID.  Now, they are here to stay and it’s time to make them amazing.

Meetings are critical to collaborative work. Meetings are where teams define new problems, explore new approaches, brainstorm ideas, and share creative insights to real problems. At least, that’s what happens in effective meetings.

Ineffective meetings are plagued by distracted participants and disengaged team members. They are boring, pointless, and no one wants to be there.

As a leader, you need to be able to facilitate effective, engaging online meetings, trainings, and webinars. There are critical differences to facilitating online versus in person.

In this course, you will learn how to lead effective, engaging online meetings that result in engaged employees, real problems being solved, and meaningful interactions between participants.

“Amy Climer is one of the best professionals we’ve had the opportunity to work with. She recently facilitated a webinar on managing change for our Graduate Student Leadership Institute. Amy was diligent in preparing: from asking great questions about all aspects of the presentation (right down to the layout of the room) to exploring ways to make sure the webinar was engaging. Her delivery was phenomenal and provided a seamless learning experience for all participants. Students remarked that the presentation was thorough while remaining accessible and provided them with actionable takeaways. Amy really set the bar for what we’ve come to expect from webinars. Amy continues to be the gold standard for virtual programs and we look forward to continuing to work with her.”

A Personal Invitation from Dr. Amy Climer

I’ve been leading virtual meetings and trainings for years. When COVID hit in March 2020 I started getting calls from colleagues and clients asking to help them with their virtual meetings. They didn’t need Zoom instructions (the Zoom website is great for that). They wanted to know how to do it well. Soon I realized I couldn’t individually help everyone. Then, this class was born.
The Leading Engaging Virtual Meetings Course is jam packed with lots of content to help you master the technology, design stellar programs, and deliver engaging experiences. The live sessions are an opportunity for your questions to get answered and to experience different tools and techniques.
If you are committed to designing and leading stellar virtual experiences, you are in the right place. I’m excited to fast-track your learning curve and get you to rock-star status faster and easier.
If you have any questions, just ask.
Otherwise, I’ll see you in class!
