Interact and Engage!

Kassy LaBorie, Principal Consultant at Kassy LaBorie Consulting, LLC

Whether it's an online meeting, a presentation via webinar, or live online training, engagement is the main question on everyone's mind. Will it be worth my time to attend or will it be an opportunity to check email instead? Live online meeting technology is powerful and has made it easy to connect with people from anywhere in the world at any time, yet we often still struggle with getting everyone to interact.

Interaction is the answer to successful engagement and learning and using the features of the platform is the answer to interaction. However, the features alone do not engage the participants. It is what you choose to do with those features that will make the difference in your next virtual training, webinar, or meeting. Learn what you can do to be successful in the virtual environment and avoid everyone asking for a recording or a copy of the slides five minutes into your next virtual training.

The speaker will discuss design considerations for WebEx, Zoom, Adobe Connect, other platforms, but will deliver this session live online using Zoom.

Digital Accessibility Matters for CPE Sponsors and CPAs

Lainey Feingold, Esq., Law Office of Lainey Feingold

Digital Accessibility means that people with disabilities can interact with online content and participate independently in digital programs.  Without accessibility, CPAs with disabilities are excluded from Sponsor CPE programs.  Without accessibility the full potential of disabled employees is limited.  Accessibility in inclusion. The absence of accessibility is exclusion.

Digital accessibility is the law for CPE providers, but it is so much more than that. It is essential to all diversity and inclusion programs, good for business, and the right, ethical thing to do.   Whatever type of CPE program your organization offers, this session will provide you with practical information (including best practices and a legal framework) to ensure your programs are accessibility to a wide range of people, including people with disabilities.
