Keynote: Communication @ Work: Corporate Connections and Relationships in the Hybrid Workplace

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Let’s update the cliché: “We might be done with COVID virtual but COVID virtual isn’t done with us.”

    Whether you love or loathe virtual, the future of work communication is hybrid. Post-pandemic workspaces are re-tooling for both in-office and remote work arrangements. Customers and stakeholders expect virtual meetings to be a standard communication option.

    The tools and technology are getting cheaper and easier to use. Yet many of us continue to struggle with speaking via webcam. Hybrid meetings feel siloed, real engagement and the connection are difficult to foster, and everyone is still being treated to an A+ view of Bob’s nose hairs.

    Conversing via videoconference is different from in-person interactions, and it gets even trickier when some people are in-person while others are on-screen. To thrive with communication in the new hybrid workplace, we need more than the latest virtual space or mini ring light. We need targeted communication skills and a fresh mindset regarding how we connect in the presence of the webcam.

    Interpersonal communication and public speaking expert Lauren Sergy will take you on an engaging deep-dive into how virtual affects some of our most basic communication behaviours. Discover what must be done to grow relationships, strengthen business culture, and sidestep burnout in our complex communication landscape.

Lauren is an outstanding MC – engaging, professional, and flexible. She made the work of our planning team easier and really connected with our delegates with a bilingual program that was both entertaining and relevant. Lauren was very hands-on throughout our two-day AGM, working with us to adjust and tweak the flow to keep things on time. I strongly recommend her services for any corporate event!

Jason Watt

Director
Business Career College

Lauren is an outgoing, kind, and knowledgeable public speaking coach. I completed her class in the Summer of 2017 and I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to improve their public speaking skills, strengthen their presence, and build confidence. Lauren’s classes helped me gain a better understanding of why I had an irrational fear of public speaking; she walked me through tactics and strategies that enabled me to manage and overcome those fears. If you’re looking for a safe space to work on your public speaking skills, I would definitely enroll in one of her workshops!

Joanne Lieu

Associate Director of Principle Gifts
Office of Advancement, University of Alberta

Thanks, Lauren for all your help! You’ve been great because you actually teach me how to apply the knowledge I’ve gained in real-world scenarios. Your “drills” really work! I’m a much more capable speaker now than I was before. On top of that, I really appreciate how you tailor your sessions to what will help me the most in my business at the present moment.

I very much enjoyed the enthusiasm which Lauren brings to what she teaches. If you are like me and learn by practice and immediate constructive feedback then this is the course for you. The course Lauren offers is tailored more to your own personal needs, strengths and weaknesses and this is what makes the course so unique and valuable to me. I am so pleased that I chose it and can now integrate it into my everyday life. I own my right to speak my mind at the same time with the ability to value and engage with my audience at the same time.
