The availability of high-speed internet has given us the opportunity to be present anywhere, learn from everywhere, and grow consistently. I personally don’t remember the last time I headed to the library. Today, knowledge & information across many different subject areas is available online, accessible within seconds.

By now, many of us have become used to the fact that for nearly any subject, there is high-quality learning content accessible to you without leaving your location. And this continues to grow as you read.

A recent study shows the significant rise in e-learning, with video elements being a successful factor in much of that growth, expected to make up for almost 80% of all web activity worldwide (including e-learning) in 2019!

From recorded lectures and on-demand courses, to step-by-step live coaching sessions, video continues to grow as a strong delivery method for online learning. And I am not surprised. Videos are some of the most engaging, on-demand e-learning material available to us today.

This has already lead to a rise in online summits and virtual educational conferences that offer a great combination of knowledge, mentorship, networking and accessibility. 


3 Virtual Conferences in 2019 That You Can’t Miss


  1. The Remote Work Summit 2019 

    Besides the opportunity to learn from anywhere, the internet also gave us the opportunity to work from anywhere. You might have heard or read it online that ‘the future of work is remote’. But what does it exactly mean?

    With increasing globalization & connectivity, organizations are realizing that the best talent isn’t always available next door. And again, why would you limit yourself when you can hire from anywhere in the world?

    The Remote Work Summit 2019, helps individuals and organizations to work efficiently in a remote environment and provides insights from over 14+ remote industry experts on hiring, onboarding, collaborating and growing in a remote environment.

    The completely online summit is scheduled for April 16th - 18th, 2019 and is absolutely free to attend.

    It will include a panel of speakers from multiple Fortune 500 companies, startups, and agencies to talk about the challenges and framework of building effective remote teams, organizations, and careers. Companies including Dell, Buffer, Zapier, Dribbble, Doist, Fiverr and Workplaceless (yay!).

    More than 11,000 CXOs, HR professionals, remote workers & freelancers will be attending and you should too.

A quick note: Don't forget that when you're attending an event like the Remote Work Summit, make sure to maximize your time by 1) doing your homework to see who is presenting (and about what!), 2) think about how you will actually apply what you learn to your job. The sooner you apply something new, the more likely it is that you'll retain that new knowledge or skill.
