Hi, [name],

I was thinking about you and wondering how [your organization] is dealing with online meetings and presentations. So many organizations are struggling with the transition to online … everything!

If you’re having issues with how to manage video conferencing confidently and professionally, my friend Chuck can help. When the virus outbreak shut the Glen Echo Art and Culture Park down, his team at Bald Guy Studio was hired to develop a Zoom training for over 100 art instructors and hundreds of students so they could move their classes online.

Are you having issues like Zoom fatigue? Or with folks showing up in meetings unmuted so you hear their dogs and kids in the background? Do presenters know how to optimize their lighting and audio? Have you made use of Zoom’s security or remote control features?

If you’d like some answers to a couple of questions, just hit reply with what you need and I’ll ask Chuck to help.

Thanks and stay safe out there!
