Insight On Business the News Hour

Pivoting to a Virtual World to Meet Demand

Back in March the leadership team at Tero International assessed what COVID19 could do to their business if the company failed to adjust and pivot from in person events to holding classes using technology. Here Deborah Rinner, the Chief Learning Officer at Tero International, talks about that transition, why they had to move quickly and, more importantly, what all of this has taught the teachers.
