    Via Zoom


    Do you have a critical client presentation that’s now being done as a video conference? Are your online company meetings less than helpful? Is your shortlist interview still happening with the “small” difference that it’s now a conference call? How do you make human connections via technology?

    We’re all adapting to the “new normal” of how to conduct business without being together in person. Teams are scattered, clients use different video-conferencing platforms, and bandwidth is at a premium. Now, more than ever, it’s critical to be intentional about making those human connections. Please join SMPS Northern New England and AIA Maine for this hour-long virtual workshop with Carol Doscher and Joe Masi of Graceworks, during which attendees will:

    • Learn how to help your listener stay engaged with you.
    • Discover your biggest challenge to make that happen!
    • Get practical do’s — and don’ts! — for conference and video calls.
    • See demos of how to best use visuals.
    • Experience how essential body language is. Yes, it’s true! Even when you can’t see the people you’re talking with, body language is enormously helpful for them and for you.

    It’s all about helping your listener stay focused so they get what they need! This meeting will be held via Zoom; details will be distributed to registrants by Graceworks prior to the workshop.

    *AIA Maine and SMPS members outside of the Northern New England chapter - please choose the option to "Continue as Guest" on the registration page. Once you do so, choose your chapter/organization and enter your member number to receive your complimentary registration.
