Virtual Leader

Remote Rapid Response Courses

People all over the world are experiencing the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. At NetSpeed Learning Solutions, we have been impacted in two ways. First, Seattle is the epicenter of the pandemic within the United States, and we are personally staying home more and practicing “social distancing” to reduce the spread of the virus. And second, our expertise in virtual meetings and virtual training is finding a sudden new demand from clients who are cancelling instructor-led training programs and looking for virtual alternatives.

We offer courses that help learning professionals create and deliver engaging, online learning for the virtual classroom. We also offer programs that help managers become powerful virtual leaders. As the author of Great Webinars: Create Interactive Learning that is Captivating, Informative, and Fun (revised and updated in 2019), I can ensure that you achieve your learning objectives through effective online learning. We have been supporting organizations like yours to transition effectively since 2010. Our experienced team is eager to support your learning initiatives.

We have decided to introduce three remote “rapid response” public programs to get you or your team up and running quickly. These rapid response programs can all be offered privately to your organization as well. Contact us for more information and pricing.
