    Pikes Peak ATD's Collaboration Hour #3: Join Us!

    The screenshot above, while slightly different in appearance than our conversations, captures the calm, intimate atmosphere of geographically distributed professionals who are sharing expertise and learning with each other.       

    Pikes Peak ATD's upcoming collaboration hour, facilitated by Barbara Maroney and Kitty Wooley, will present you with a similar opportunity.  Whether you'd like to continue the June program's "ID vs. Trainer" discussion, hear a recap of trends presented earlier in the day at PPCC, or talk through a thorny workplace challenge, give this forum a try.  At the same time, you'll broaden your professional network and explore the potential of conversational video to move your organization ahead of the curve.  


    You can ask anything, share anything and we will all agree to:

    1. keep things confidential

    2. be mindful in critiques – not critical

    3. be respectful of other’s ideas

     Pikes Peak ATD collaboration hours are not recorded.  


    Registration has been disabled for this video conversation - just show up. Please use your full name during setup instead of an alias. Or, please hold up a notecard with your full name.


    Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android:

    First-time attendees must hit the link in advance to do a small, one-time install. After the install is complete, you may enter the "room" any time between now and 5 PM that day to check that your videocam, mic, and speakers are enabled. Once you're there, simply mouse over the icons at bottom left. Clicking on the mic or videocam icon toggles it off and on. Stay unmuted if it's quiet at your end.

    Collaboration hour is more effective and fun when we can see each other. If you don't have a webcam, download the free app and use your mobile device.

    Need help? Email or call or text Kitty at 703-628-4779 and she will get back to you ASAP. See you soon!
