(Use the "Buy" button at the top of the page for a single-person license.  If you have an interest in multi-person program licenses, use the options below or contact me at for a custom quote.)

This brand new course provides tips and tools for being more productive for those now working virtually/remotely, as well as specific tips for those doing virtual meetings.  Here is the description of the program:

Virtual Meetings and Virtual Work:  

Getting More Productivity and Effectiveness from Both


In this new program reflecting our current times with the coronavirus outbreak, Randy Dean, MBA, The E-mail Sanity Expert®, will take his 16+ years of "working from a home office" and leading multiple client meetings and webinars virtually, and provide you with tips that can greatly help increase your productivity and effectiveness with both.  We'll discuss critical set up, equipment, software, tools, and apps that will make your work from home experience more productive and less distracting.  We will also discuss critical tips for running and/or attending online virtual meetings so they can be more useful and effective.  All in a quick 90 minute webinar program!

NEW EXTRA BONUS:  I also recently did a new webinar on my long-time popular course on Managing & Leading Great Staff & Team Meetings (Including Tips for Virtual Meetings) with NALP.  They have given me permission to use this webinar replay as part of my program. 

Here is the description for this popular course:

With firm resources tighter than ever, and staff and management busier than ever, frivolous meetings are simply not an option.Yet they continue to occur more often than ever. And too many unproductive, wasteful meetings create a major drag on staff morale and motivation, thus affecting productivity, turnover, and the company’s “bottom line”. And, if you are the organizer or leader of unproductive meetings, it certainly doesn’t speak well for your personal management style, effectiveness, and/or competency – you simply cannot afford to look bad when you are “on stage” in a competitive or political environment. Avoid the common “meeting failure” pitfalls! Learn proven strategies for better preparing for meetings, getting better participation, running meetings effectively, and having better follow up and follow through once the meeting is over.Take your meetings to a new level, and have your team actually look forward to that time well spent together!

After this session, you will have techniques to:

- Learn key reasons why meetings can both fail and succeed, and prepare for "failure mitigation"

- Use proven strategies for better pre-meeting preparation, including both meeting leaders and attendees

- Get the right people (and only the right people) in the room consistently to achieve the stated goals and objectives of the meeting

- Better manage distractions and discourtesies in meetings so they are more likely to be successful

- Get more input and participation from all personality types, not just the "dominant extroverts"

- Use a unique "real time" technique for meeting documentation that leads to excellent post-meeting delegation, follow up and follow through

- Know when a formal meeting isn't needed, and how to better leverage "quick huddles" -- both in person and virtual

- Have access to techniques for more successful ongoing project/team meetings, making them become and stay highly productive over the life of the group/team

- Even run a better brainstorming meeting, getting better participation from attendees and more useful idea generation

SOMETHING BRAND NEW: I am now also offering up to 30-minutes of one-on-one consulting via Zoom for all course purchasers. (This will be scheduled at a mutually-agreed-upon time and date, with understanding that Randy has a busy client and travel schedule. You can also choose to e-mail your questions instead, with the 30 minutes counted toward the responses. Only  one 30-minute consulting session per individual program purchase. If making a group purchase, Randy will be in touch about possible options.)

Take a look at the Course Curriculum below as well as my suggestions on how to get most out of this course to see everything you get at this special low price.

NOTE: This is special temporary pricing due to the coronavirus outbreak.  I expect to raise the price on this program once things get back to normal.  Please stay safe right now.
