Surviving and Thriving in the Virtual World of Zoom

Physical distancing has made Zoom and video conferencing technologies the new default method of bringing people together. Adapting to a virtual world is necessary, but how do creatives survive and thrive in this new normal?

On Wednesday, October 28, AIGA Houston welcomes Lee-Sean Huang, AIGA's Design Education Manager, to Surviving and Thriving in the Virtual World of Zoom. Join us for this free interactive workshop looking back at what we've learned since March. We will be discussing strategies and pain points that need to be considered as you prepare for a virtual interview, meeting or presentation.
