Remotely Delivered Workshops

Weeks Sept. 20, 2021; Nov. 15, 2021; & March 21, 2022

In the Covid age with the travel restrictions, etc., we’ve added a virtual delivery format using Zoom.  The class will be delivered over the course of 5 days.  Each of the 5 sessions will run from 1 pm ET to roughly 5 pm — with breaks of course!

Right now on our calendars we have classes scheduled for the weeks of:

  • September 20, 2021
  • November 15, 2021
  • March 21, 2022

The remote class will cover all the same content as in our 3-day live, in-person classes, including the review of a survey for each attendee.

Most of our class descriptions are for those 3-day live, in-person classes, and unfortunately, the transition to virtual half-day classes isn’t as clean as we’d like.  We’re happy to clarify.

Washington DC Area Workshops:

NOW A VIRTUAL CLASS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20, 2021

Due to Covid Delta concerns, we have changed this in-person class to a virtual class.  Sadly.

Dubai Workshops: November TBD, 2021

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 late summer 2020, workshops like this are on hold until the world gets back on its axis, so to speak.  That’s why we are targeting June 2021 for our next class in Dubai.

Washington DC Area Workshops:

September 19-21, 2022

Embassy Suites Old Town Alexandria

Hotel view from Metro platform

We were hoping to make our annual trip to Washington DC area for a fall workshop at the Embassy Suites, 1900 Diagonal Road, Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Tel: +1 (703) 684-5900.  Alas, Covid-19 and its Delta spin-off have made both 2020 & 2021 classes impossible, which is why we have September 2022 dates on our calendar.

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

This is typically a very popular class location.  In fact, in 2018, we had to book a 2nd class in November to deal with the overflow.  Hopefully, we’ll have the same “problem” again in 2022.
