Virtual working? It can be tough with bad lines, inaudible voices and technology that only works some of the time. On top of that, it can be really tricky to keep engaged and focused when you can’t see people’s faces and you don’t know the people on the other end of the line. And we haven’t even mentioned the misunderstandings that happen across cultures! This photo sums up what these calls can feel like:
But it doesn’t need to be like this!

How did people find the first Virtual Working Summit? Here are some extracts from the feedback:
The Virtual Working Summit was a wonderful learning and networking experience. The speakers were so very knowledgeable. I looked forward each day to listening to the sessions! The summit was an excellent way to learn and connect with other professionals in a convenient and flexible way. Thank you Penny for a great program.
Hard to think of what could make this experience better. Penny’s efforts were outstanding and this summit was more than what I expected.
To be honest, I can’t think of anything to improve for next year! I thought the summit was extremely well organised and the different sessions covered the topic very well. Thank you!
a great start – looking forward to the next one
The summit sessions were excellent. All topics are relevant. For next year, continue to do a great job on selected relevant topics

All the calls I listened to were good. I only didn’t listen to calls if I physically couldn’t make time to listen that day – I would have listened to them all if I could.

I thought the telephone interviews were very professional, sound quality was excellent and good to be able to listen at any time. A great idea, wonderfully implemented. Carol Sherriff, director and facilitator, Wilson Sherriff
Audio format combined with LinkedIn discussions. Interview topics, practical advice.
I enjoyed ALL of the topics that were presented. I liked the fact that I could dial in at my own convenience. I actually heard my question asked during the summit so I thought that was very cool. I liked that the speakers were from a variety of countries and expertise, but it all tied in together nicely. Penny, this was a fantastic experience for me. Thank you for pulling all of the resources together and for offering us such a fantastic and FREE summit. I am already looking forward to participating next year and hope that since I registered I will be automatically on your email list for notices of same. THANKS SO MUCH! Cheryl D. Oberg, PMP [USA]
