Virtual communication seminars

Any time, any place

Virtual communication seminars

Our virtual communication seminars offer a live learning experience to companies with employees in different locations or remote teams. This is an up-to-date solution for international companies which reduces travel time and costs and offers maximum flexibility without sacrificing quality.

Virtual seminars go beyond webinars or online courses by incorporating more hands-on practice and interaction. The number of participants is limited to ensure all the benefits of personal communication and individual attention. The seminar format mixes live webinars with self-study, peer review tasks and feedback to create variation in focus and flow of information. This allows attendees to get the most out of the seminar and put their new skills into practice right away.

EnglishBusiness currently offers virtual communication seminars for presentation skills and project management.
