Overview and Background
Business has been and always will be about being faster, cheaper, better. To accomplish that strategically, the faster you can communicate, the faster you can change, and those corporations that change the fastest will be the most successful. Yet organizations struggle because to increase the speed you need to increase the speed of the people who work there. The world is moving faster and faster as what I call “organizational velocity” (OV). OV is the speed by which information travels throughout the organization. We all know where information is but how it is used and how fast it is used is critical to making decisions faster. Decision making is more than a yes-no but often a carefully orchestrated process that looks at what needs to be done and through the lifespan until the decision changes. The concept of the mythical person month effectively describes that if you are an organization of one, you can make decisions instantly, but you can only do the work of one. When you add more and more people, decisions take almost infinitely longer as more and more people are involved but you can do more like sending a person to space. To accelerate the communications process means getting people “on the same” page faster.
Session 4E Integration of Virtual Technologies - Only in Expert Level Course
Depending on client needs, audience type and size as well as goals is also a workshop to allow participants to give their own presentation, this class is approximately 60-90 minutes with less than 20 students recommended. In the past, we have used Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address as a model for participants to give their own version of this thoughtful and profound speech. If not, this session will be a discussion of how virtual meeting technologies enhances what types of meetings such as, depending on time-permitted and participant discussions:
  • Negotiation
  • Deliberation
  • Persuasion
  • Voting
  • Jury
  • Delegation
  • What does "getting everyone on the same page" really mean and how to you know that is accomplished
  • Information seeking - research
  • Problem solving
  • Discussion of ideas
  • Delegation of work
  • Decision making policy, guidance,
  • Orders "always avoid verbal orders"
  • Policy decision making
  • Presentation - strategic, informational, reports, updates
  • Quality control
  • Training - learning - education - pedagogy
  • C-level presentations
  • Investor and financial compliance
  • Wall Street Analysts
  • Crisis communications
  • Interpersonal conflicts
  • Conflict resolution
  • Disciplinary reviews
The process of collaboration in today’s environment requires the “buy-in” or socialization from more and more people. However, as each day delays any decision the value or ROI-return on investment declines faster and faster. In other words, the longer the delay the lower the return. Giving that people involved in many decisions are not just sitting around waiting for what you need but working on their own work. Indeed, we need better collaboration, but we also need not just faster but better improvements in the collaboration process. If you consider that meeting participants may need time to research, complete a task, visit a customer, work with others you can see that the more complex the decision the more indepth the development to determine validity or potential outcome. In those situations, in which factual information is being exchanged in order to solve a problem, studies show that only about half of the person’s time is actually spent communicating—sending or receiving information.
Searching for information, taking notes, and other organizing efforts took up the rest of the time. If the meeting type is one of negotiation or conflict requiring an exchange of opinions and argumentation, the person spends as much as 75% of his or her time actually communicating with verifying each step of a document or process along the way. Nonetheless, other non-communicating activities, such as information retrieval and document reading, still make up 25% of the person’s time. In addition, another overlooked challenge did meeting attendees really understand what the presenter/speaker was trying to convey. That is, did they all agree on what was said, was what was heard and ultimately gets done? If you are boring face-to-face, you will still be boring via video and technology only makes you look worse. The goal of the course is not just to overlay technology to a fundamental problem of poor communication but integrate enhanced technology with better business communications processes.
Summary – Virtual Events (VEP) Power Professional Certification is designed to provide faster, cheaper and effective ways for improved business communications. Enhanced meeting technology options are complex and getting more so as there are fewer and fewer people in one place with more and more people in customer, technical labs, research centers, working at home, co-working, mobile, auto, train, plane with fewer onsite each using often very different technology. VEP can bring technology with business processes and operations that accelerates decisions faster with more involvement and allows for more thoughtful analysis.

New Recommendations:

"Tom and I developed and delivered more than a dozen virtual webinars on social media, virtual selling and marketing strategies. Tom is an excellent course designer, developer and importantly has great delivery and virtual presentation skills. I would highly recommend him for any virtual presentations including investor pitch, virtual selling, virtual events/sales professional as well as highly technical subjects including AI. His book on AI - MindMeld has been called the best business book on AI yet written. He can really help you be the best."
