Maintaining Collaboration in a Hybrid World: How Pharmacosmos Managed the Change to Virtual Onboarding & Collaboration

Tuesday, Dec. 7
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Pharmacosmos Therapeutics, a Danish pharmaceutical company, received an FDA approval in January 2020 that expanded their business into the United States. While this presented an exciting opportunity, it also posed a challenge: How could their lean L&D team replicate the company’s strong, collaborative culture on the other side of the globe during a pandemic?

Join us for this 30-minute LTEN webinar, sponsored by Allego, where Melissa Young, associate director of sales training and development at Pharmacosmos Therapeutics, will share how she used cutting-edge sales enablement tools to keep her team connected and productive throughout one of the most important periods in the company’s history. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • Strategies to keep your team connected and collaborative in a hybrid environment.
  • The most effective ways to onboard and train virtually with sales readiness technology.
  • Why being virtual doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your product launch strategy.
  • Technology’s role in the future of workplace culture.

Planning Hybrid Meetings: Tips for Trainers & Facilitators

Friday, Dec. 10
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Hybrid training sessions and meetings may seem scary, but they don’t have to be. A hybrid meeting is a collaborative meeting with participants in two or more separate locations where a distance communication technology is used to create a synchronous experience.

In 2020, we were thrust into learning how to facilitate virtual meetings, but now we have time to prepare. We can build our own best practices. We’ve done it once; we can do it again.

Join us for this interactive LTEN webinar, geared toward facilitators and anyone who plans training sessions or meetings. In this Zoom webinar, we will share a few tips from hybrid meetings we’ve planned, and you will have the opportunity to practice. We will do a breakout group activity where you will be given a scenario to plan for and be asked to brainstorm:

  • How might you set up the room?
  • What meeting agreements do you want in place?
  • What is your staffing plan?
  • What are the key activities in your agenda?
  • What technology protocols will help you in each activity?
  • What instructions might you need to give to those online vs. in the room?
  • What challenges do you anticipate, and how would you handle them?

Using Learning Science to Create Effective Training

Friday, Dec. 17
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Learning is a science, and our day-to-day practice should reflect that fact. All instructional strategies or technologies we deploy must consider how people learn and retain what they have learned.

Join us for this LTEN webinar, as Steven Just Ed.D., CLO of Intela Learning and CEO of Princeton Metrics, shares both the science and the practice of learning. We’ll start by defining learning and then focus on several well-researched principles of learning science:

  • Managing cognitive load.
  • Creating learning schema.
  • The two channels we use to process new information.
  • The two different types of long-term memory and how they relate.
  • Encoding and re-encoding.
  • Desirable difficulties.
  • Deliberate practice.

We’ll also show how several instructional strategies and technologies are consistent (or not) with this science, including interleaved practice, microlearning, “delayed” feedback, priming exams, cumulative exams, gamification, multimedia learning and virtual reality.

The Business of Storytelling

Friday, Feb. 4
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


There is power in storytelling. Messages delivered through stories are 22% more memorable than just facts. Stories are easy to remember and capture an audience’s attention by engaging their emotions.

Join us for this LTEN webinar, as we focus on brand storytelling, which allows us to connect on a deeper, more meaningful level with our desired audience. Sloane Heffernan, a two-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and founder of Storymore, will show you how a compelling narrative, authentic characters and truthful dialogue builds trust, loyalty and lasting relationships.

After this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Build a narrative with your own storytelling toolbox.
  • Clarify your story and capture the attention of your easily distracted audience.
  • Ask “reporter questions” to get the answers that will best tell your story.

Who should attend? This session is for anyone who wants to be a more effective communicator, reach a larger audience and develop stronger relationships.
