You’ve been delivering a highly regarded workshop for a while now. Or you’ve just developed a new program and planned to present it live for the first time. During the workshop you rely heavily on whiteboards and poster paper. There might be a few hundred sticky notes involved.

Learn what worked for one long-time instructor who turned a live, two-day workshop into a successful virtual workshop in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
