About the Event

An interactive and engaging approach to delivering a live streamed training session via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. There is a maximum of 20 delegates on this course to facilitate learning. The trainer uses an interactive tool which can be used for voting, taking part in case studies, sharing ideas/opinions, Q&A’s and makes the course more interesting by being interactive. Delegates can ask questions and interact with the trainer.
