Don’t let technology control your events – don’t let Zoom get between you and your audience
There are many features, tricks and extra tools (as well as limitations) that people don’t know about.
“Hang on a second” … or … “I don’t know why you can’t see that” … or … “we can’t do that on Zoom” (yes! … you can!)

From an expert in Zoom and it’s uses
I am a professional IT trainer (with more patience than you’ll need 😉), with experience in groupwork, communication skills and coaching.
I’ve supported many people and organisations using Zoom in practical as well as creative ways to get the job done.
My joy is finding creative ways to add extra value, interest and interaction in what can otherwise be rather boring online events.

What people say about the sessions

“Your combination of IT skills and graciousness in managing a group of people is an unusual mix. Truly invaluable!”
