Have you ever tried to give people advice? Have you ever wondered why people do not seem to be motivated to become involved with your organisation? Have you ever tried to convince people to do things that are good for them and they did not seem to want to change?
If you would like to know more about motivation and behavior change, please join IGLYO’s Webinar 1 on March 10, at 6 pm CET. You need an internet connection on your computer or mobile phone. The webinar will take about 45 minutes. DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: March 7. Please see below.
IGLYO would like to start a series of online short workshops where our members could gain some practical basic knowledge and skills about various useful topics.
In the current format of webinars, the number of participants is limited to 8. We are open to exploring different formats so we would appreciate your thoughts and feedback about this event after it is finished.
As we do not know how many interested people there are, we will reserve spots to the webinar on a first come, first served based. Please email email@example.com with the firm intention to participate and a short paragraph describing what part of your work has to do with motivating people and we will send invitations to the first 8 people who want to participate. If there is enough interest, we will schedule another webinar on the same topic at a later date. DEADLINE FOR SENDING THE EMAIL: March 7.
Please stay in touch with us for more webinars on other interesting topics soon to come!
