Human Connection in a Virtual World

Start date: TBC

Location: Virtual

Cost: €50

Programme overview

Half-Day Instructor-led Online Training Course. This is a hands-on workshop (delivered over Zoom) with former RTE/TG4 journalist Grett O’Connor that will help you to build rapport and a real connection with your clients and customers using video conferencing.

Learn how to create a warm and welcoming virtual room. Find out how to communicate effectively and build rapport over a live video link for the purposes of one-to-one work, group work and facilitation.


Grett says her workshops give people a whole new perspective on videoconferencing.

‘We look at the physical environment, including backdrop and lighting. We talk about the etiquette that makes online conferencing run more smoothly,’ she says, ‘but participants also get expert advice about rapport-building that will transform their videoconferences forever. I help people to make real human connections – with the help of the technology, not in spite of it.’

Grett O’Connor:

Grett O’Connor is a communications and media lecturer, but she worked as a TV and radio journalist with RTE and TG4 for 20 years. As well as her part-time work at Kinsale College, she runs highly sought-after media and communications workshops for various sectors including entrepreneurs, scientists and public servants.

For many years, she appeared on camera every day. Telepresence and effective videoconferencing is second nature to her because she has spent so much time on screen. She feels at home there. She understands what works, and she can show you how to make friends with the camera.

Holder of a first class honours MSc in Coaching (UCC), an MA in Journalism (DCU) and a B.Ed. Hons (St Patrick’s College of Education), Grett has a unique combination of learning, skills and experience which make her the ideal person to give people confidence – and real competence – at making a human connection in a virtual world.
