It was an incredibly sad time when the majority of our face-to-face training workshops were cancelled this year, due to the pandemic. Work for the programme begins the previous year, with bookings arriving from November onwards and most workshops were already fully booked for the year. Obviously we were unsure how long the situation would last, and we are all still living with the restrictions.
A steep learning curve followed. Like most of us this year, we have had to become more familiar with online platforms in order to have meetings with our colleagues. After discussing and conducting many trial runs, we decided to use Microsoft Teams Live to run some online training workshops.
