About this Event

Inclusive Business Communication from a Distance

You’ve been meeting remotely for months. The questions you had in the beginning about using video have been replaced by a combination of isolation, frustration, miscommunication, and fatigue. These issues are brought into sharper focus when we look through the lens of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). How do the virtual environment and all of its challenges hinder or help our DE&I goals? What can we do as meeting facilitators and meeting participants to meet these challenges?

The coming months are going to be about finding a profoundly new way to work and to work together. If one thing is certain, it is that we will never go back to working in exactly the same way we did in 2019.

These and other issues we face through remote work will be addressed in this free webinar. We’ll discuss the importance of authenticity, humility, your virtual appearance, inclusiveness, interactivity, and being intentional with your communication in order to

  • Nurture relationships with colleagues, clients, and prospects
  • “Show up” for the people you work with
  • Establish trust
  • Be both engaged and engaging
  • Create the conditions for a fruitful exchange of ideas
  • Be inclusive of everyone in the meeting, even those who choose not to be on video
  • Draw out quiet meeting attendees and value their input

Whether you meet internally with your team or externally with clients, this webinar will provide the insights you need to nurture relationships and move business forward through virtual meetings.

Speaker Bios

Dale Ludwig is the Founder and President of Turpin Communication. Since 1992, he and his partners have developed methodologies that challenge much of the conventional wisdom in the field of communication skill development. Whether he’s working one-on-one with executives or groups of presenters, facilitators and trainers, Dale (1) focuses on The Orderly Conversation® that must take place in every situation, (2) acknowledges the Default Approach that individuals bring to the communication process, and (3) helps communicators develop the skills they need to engage listeners in a productive interaction.

In addition to being one of Turpin’s lead instructors, Dale is our Chief Learning Architect when tailoring learning engagements for our clients, and he holds the Bates ExPI™ (Executive Presence Index) coaching certification.

Depending on the needs of his clients, Dale works to help businesspeople

  • Develop and deliver presentations to leadership, internal teams, and external buyers and stakeholders as well as to industry groups at conferences
  • Weave storytelling into presentations as a way for leaders to communicate a clear vision
  • Facilitate training and high stakes meetings
  • Explore the connections among effective leadership, presence, and communication
  • Deliver presentations, facilitate training, and manage meetings in the virtual environment

Dale has a PhD in Communication from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the co-author, along with Greg Owen-Boger, of two books, The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined and Effective SMEs: A Trainer’s Guide to Helping Subject Matter Experts Facilitate Learning. He is a frequent blogger and is also the author of the white paper “Getting Past 101,” available at www.turpincommunication.com. In his spare time, he serves as the President of Turpin Cares, Turpin’s philanthropic arm that serves the homeless and food insecure on Chicago’s south side.

Greg Owen-Boger is the Vice President of Turpin Communication. Schooled in management and the performing arts, Greg brings a diverse and entrepreneurial set of skills to the organization. He joined Turpin in 1995 after leaving his acting career behind and quickly worked his way up. He now serves as a communication trainer and executive coach for Turpin’s largest clients. In a typical month, Greg might bounce from training presenters to coaching executives to helping salespeople tell more compelling stories. He might help someone get more comfortable in front of a camera using a prompter. His work also includes teaching facilitation and helping people prepare to present at conferences. He is as comfortable communicating in a virtual environment as he is in live face-to-face situations.

Along with Dale Ludwig, Greg is the co-author of two books, The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined and Effective SMEs: A Trainer’s Guide to Helping Subject Matter Experts Facilitate Learning. Greg is a popular speaker and blogger and makes frequent guest appearances at conferences and on a variety of external blogs and podcasts. He is among many thought leaders who contributed to Master Presenter: Lessons from the World’s Top Experts on Becoming a More Influential Speaker.

Greg was the 2015 President of the Chicagoland Chapter of the Association for Talent Development, and he holds the Bates ExPI™ (Executive Presence Index) coaching certification. In his spare time, he is the Executive Director of Turpin Cares, Turpin’s philanthropic arm that serves the homeless and food insecure on Chicago’s south side.
