Session details: Discover free and easy ways to use Zoom and other apps to connect with your team, customers and more while we shelter in place. Working from home doesn't mean we have to be disconnected. There are lots of ways to use free apps and tools to stay connected from afar. Tracy Graziani and members of the Graziani Multimedia team will walk you through practical ways to get the most out of Zoom and other apps designed for virtual collaboration. 

You'll learn:

  • how to host video calls, meetings, and webinars
  • how to use free apps like Slack and Google Drive for better collaboration
  • little-known features in some of your favorite apps like Zoom and Gmail

Our second Chamber Digital Academy session will feature Ryan Gleason of the US Chamber of Commerce to discuss the new Paycheck Protection Program that was passed by Congress last week – that will take place Thursday, April 9th at 1:00pm (watch for a Zoom link on this one soon).

Our other new program, Small Business Conversation Series, will take place every Monday at 1pm on Zoom throughout the month of April, starting April 6th. This series will give you a chance to connect virtually with other small business owners in the area and hear more about resources that are available to help you.
