5 reasons to take advantage of Jackrabbit’s virtual training opportunities

Virtual events are the norm in 2021. Whether you’ve joined webinars, live demonstrations, conferences, or Jackrabbit Class training calls – you’re basically a pro.

With different states and countries in different stages of the reopening process, virtual events and hybrid events are not going anywhere anytime soon. And for some businesses, they may be here to stay.

The value of face-to-face networking and in-person training will never be replaced completely. But while we tackle this new in-between together, can digital events really enable you and your team to sharpen your professional skills? I think, with the right content and hosts, they certainly can! That’s why Jackrabbit hosts an array of virtual training that users can access nearly anytime, anywhere.

5 advantages of the Jackrabbit Class virtual training

Easy on the budget

Who loves free? I imagine anyone reading this is raising their hand or maybe both.

In the past, attending a conference or training was an investment of time and resources, especially if you were able to send more than one team member at a time. With most virtual training opportunities, the cost to attend is minimal, if not totally free. Even if the training you want to take advantage of has a registration fee, you can scratch travel, hotel accommodations, and food expenses off the list of things to worry about.

Online conferences and events take the extra fees and stress off your plate so you and your team can focus more on what you need to get out of the training itself. That, my friends, is what we call a win-win!

Convenient

Conferences can be a lot of fun – especially when you consider that they’re typically hosted in lively cities like Las Vegas, New York City, Chicago, and Orlando. Because of their locations, they’re not always easy to get to. You’ve got to consider travel logistics as well as family and personal events you may miss while away. Not to mention the sometimes difficult time of trying to connect with staff back home while working remotely between sessions, because we all know that the work doesn’t stop just because you’re away.

With online training, you can attend sessions from the comfort of your own home or office with unlimited coffee in hand!

Easily and readily accessible

In most cases, the sessions that are presented during live virtual training are recorded, giving attendees the ability to dive deeper into the content at a later date.

With registration comes access to bonus content, too, like live Q&A with the training staff, downloads, and premium content or exclusive offers. When you opt for an online event, scheduling conflicts go out the window because you can watch and rewatch sessions whenever you need to.

No-stress wardrobe selection

Bye-bye dress shirts and uncomfortable shoes. See ya, later business casual. Hello, yoga pants and last year’s open house t-shirt.

If you’re anything like me, you stress about what type of clothes you’re going to need for daytime functions and then evening transitions, nights out, and what is “conference-appropriate.” You end up over or under packing and never really get it just right.

Leave all that stress behind because no one sees you when you attend an online conference or training, so you don’t have to give throwing on your favorite sweats a second thought. Get comfy and we’ll meet you on the couch.

The whole team can attend

When you consider hitting the road and attending an in-person conference or training, there are plenty of barriers to getting your whole team there.

For one, the cost of getting every administrator, manager, and instructor to the conference is a huge investment. Even if you can pull that off, you’d have to maybe find substitutes for all your classes.

With virtual events, you can stagger schedules to allow your team to access sessions during breaks that don’t conflict with their work schedules.

Bonus tip:

Most virtual conferences and training are recorded. And most in-person events aren’t. Registering for a virtual event gets you access to the recording so you can truly engage with the sessions and not feel like you have to write everything down in the moment.

So you see, you really do get a lot more out of virtual training opportunities than you might think. Check out some of the ways Jackrabbit is connecting with youth activity owners, directors, and managers in our virtual landscape in 2021.

Jackrabbit Class BOOST virtual conference

Last year, we took our traditional bi-coastal 3-day in-person conference to the virtual world. We knew (even before COVID came along), that it was important to meet our people where they are – the studio, the gym, the office, etc. Maybe I am a bit bias but it ended up being the best conference in Jackrabbit history.

We learned a lot and are already planning on how we can make this year’s BOOST virtual conference even better. From engagement opportunities with other attendees and Jackrabbit staff to joining the lineup of sessions you’ve hand-selected, you can truly customize your conference experience to get the most out of it for you and your staff.

Stay tuned for the save-the-date for BOOST 2021 coming soon!
