Yes, for sure! A few sessions and something solid to take away is what I prefer. As far as something solid to take away, I mean a download of an asset I can read and use or a book recommendation, etc. Really anything that I can use to carry what I learned into my actual job/role/life.

Agreed Jessica! I create participant guides for my presentations - even the free ones. Actionable strategies that people can implement today or in the future and no, we won’t be longer than an hour!

Truth! My last weekend classes for grad school were 8 hour days of zoom. Fatigue is real! In a few weeks, I'm in another 3 day/all day conference. This is going to hurt both my mind (and my bum) from sitting so much.

It ended with no commencement ceremony, mailed a diploma, and not even allowed to have a party at work. It was totally anticlimactic for the amount of work it took. I've taken to noting who has "resting witch face" on Zoom and questioning what they're really looking at. It helps stay at least attentive.

Oh wow! I’m sorry to hear that Karen. With all of the time and energy you’ve invested, some form of celebration seems reasonable.

Love the concept of "duplicate live" Elisabeth!

My organization is making the shift to less day long conferences and more module based, or session based style conferences. We had to pivot from mostly live in person seminars, and our participant base was used to spending all day with us so that made the transition easier. But the shift is needed to a more convenient approach with all the capabilities of virtual interaction, the bottom line is that it needs to be convenient to all parties also, there is another layer of expectation with virtual conferences that had yet to be considered I think. Some organizations see it clearly, others are working to "duplicate live" instead of embracing virtual.

I love this Elisabeth! What we should consider is “The Compound Effect” as we pivot. Virtual has so many benefits but the impacts of the pandemic range from job loss (a spouse or partner), home schooling, health impacts, stay at home orders, adjusting to the new “working from home”, etc. These factors determine capacity of the individuals we intend to serve. However, I am excited about the opportunity to attend events virtually; to continue my development, to help others and to expand my network.
