Remotely Delivered Workshops

Week of September 14, 2020

In the Covid age with the travel restrictions, etc., we’ve added a virtual delivery format using Zoom.  The class will be delivered during the week of September 14 in the afternoon (US Eastern Time).  Each day the class will run from 1 pm ET to roughly 5 pm — with breaks of course!

The remote class will cover all the same content as in our live, in-person classes, including the review of a survey for each attendee.

Washington DC Area Workshops:

September 21-23, 2020

Embassy Suites Old Town AlexandriaWe’ll return again to the Washington DC area for a fall workshop at the Embassy Suites, 1900 Diagonal Road, Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Tel: +1 (703) 684-5900.

We love this area for our workshops because:

  • It is so convenient to the Washington Metro (King Street), Amtrak (ALX), and to Reagan National Airport (DCA). The nearby picture of the Embassy Suites hotel is taken from the King Street Metro platform.  Yes, it’s that close!
  • The neighborhood. It’s a pleasant walk down King Street into Old Town Alexandria toward the Potomac. You’ll find an array of shops and interesting, local restaurants, many with sidewalk dining, as evening distractions after a solid day of learning — and some historical sightseeing if you can spare a day on either end of your trip

Our September classes typically booked solid, and in 2019 we ran an additional class later in the year.  Hopefully that will prove true in 2020!

Of course, we don’t know how Covid-19 will affect the delivery of this class, which is why we added the virtual class also in September.

Dubai Workshops: November 1-3, 2020

Dubai Skyline

Once a year — sometimes more — we travel to the Middle East to deliver our workshops in Dubai.  Attendees from throughout the Middle East, Africa, and sometimes Europe make this a very interesting workshop as we see cultural influences on surveying practices.  Also, it’s an opportunity to explore this modern city and its grand scale, such as the world’s tallest building or a shopping mall with an indoor ski slope. (Really)  But Dubai is also an ancient city with historical venues.  (The nearby photo was shot from the rooftop lounge of the Four Points hotel.  The Burj Khalifa, world’s tallest building, is the spire in the background.)

Our business partners, Insights Middle East, manage these events including registration & pricing.  For more information and to register for these classes, please contact Insights Middle East.  We usually run the workshops in conjunction with a conference of theirs on contact (call) center management, so perhaps you’ll find broader opportunities to learn beyond improving your survey practices.

As we write this in summer 2020, workshops like this are on hold until the world gets back on its axis, so to speak.  We’re hoping that by the November timeframe listed events will be back on track.
