    For leaders, whose teams typically share a physical workspace, working from home can present many new challenges. How can you lead effectively when meetings are virtual rather than face to face? This 90 minutes session provides you with tips and strategies to leverage your team’s strengths and be a successful virtual leader.

    Learning Objectives

    Following the session participants will be able to:

    ·     Use strategies and tools to keep your team engaged and productive

    • Adapt their communication to stay connected remotely
    • Create clarity for their teams by setting expectations and boundaries
    • Gain Leadership skills to focus on in this environment
    • Set up their team for success in an alternative environment

    This course is facilitated by time2talk, a boutique organisational development consultancy who, through their Communication, Leadership, Change and Continual Improvement training programs, aim to improve leadership and communication capabilities within your business.

    Working Remotely - Building Better Relationships in a Virtual World

    Monday 12th October, 2020, 12.00pm

    About this program

    Effective communication forms the basis of building successful relationships, but it involves more than speaking or listening well. To communicate effectively you must adapt in response to particular people and situations particularly in a virtual environment where you are trying to build relationships remotely. This 90 minute session will equip you with the skills to communicate with confidence and improve your workplace relationships with the limitations of not being physically present.

    Learning Objectives

    Following the program participants will be able to:

    • Build greater connections with your team and stakeholders across virtual platforms
    • Utilise the functionalities of the virtual environment to build rapport and trust
    • Gain engagement and commitment
    • Observe and read behavioural signs and understand the needs of the recipient.

    This course is facilitated by time2talk, a boutique organisational development consultancy who, through their Communication, Leadership, Change and Continual Improvement training programs, aim to improve leadership and communication capabilities within your business.

    Don't let the current isolation restrictions prevent you from continuing your learning and development. 

    If you are about to embark on an engineering career, or perhaps you need to upskill with some of the latest and best software; if so, then this online training is the perfect opportunity for you to do so!

    An introductory course intended for engineers who are new to, or have an intermediate level of knowledge of simulation. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basics and fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis and learn how to prepare CAD geometry to be ready for simulation & meshing, define loads & boundary conditions, apply correct physics and how to interpret & validate your results using best practices.

    A series of lectures, demonstrations and workshops in ANSYS will offer the opportunity to apply these simulation techniques to a range of applications involving linear and non-linear structural mechanics and thermal analysis (along with an overview of other more advanced physics) and examples of new simulation capabilities such as generative design, composites modelling and additive manufacturing.

    A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not a prerequisite.



    •   Geometry prep for FEA
    •   Linear Analysis
    •   Dynamics Analysis
    •   Non-linear Analysis


    • Geometry prep for CFD
    • Fluent Meshing
    • Turbulent Flow Modelling
    • Heat Transfer Modelling

    You may not need to be a Simulation Expert but all engineers need to understand simulations, what it is, how it can help you and more importantly how to use it. So why not make yourself more employable and valuable to your employer by learning something new.
