Virtual Delivery

A flexible, robust virtual classroom experience that eliminates travel

The technology

Delivery of our core programmes via virtual classroom – a synchronous, live training experience with all the key features of a physical classroom coupled with the space to practice and master skills learned between activities. Participants will experience:

  • Expert virtual trainer presentations delivered in focused sessions
  • Ability to ask questions during sessions
  • Collaborative platform experience for online learning modules between virtual sessions
  • Interactive elements during sessions including quizzes and polls
  • Virtual breakout groups for role plays and group work allowing for skills practice
  • A focus on 'virtual selling' - replicating the experience of many sellers who interact with customers via video conference or telephone.

Programme schedule

It would be hard for participants to focus on a virtual programme for the two solid days they would normally spend in a classroom environment. This virtual experience is delivered via the Huthwaite Collaborative learning platform which facilitates the spacing of different inputs and activities in preparation for the timetable of virtual sessions which last 2-2.5hours each, allowing participants to remain engaged.

Small groups work in the breakout room facilities of the virtual classroom platform to practice skills using roleplay exercises similar to those usually experienced in a traditional classroom.


Presenting and delivering interactive online sessions requires very specific skills that Huthwaite facilitators have developed over the years. We have experience of delivering whole programmes of virtual classroom experiences to clients such as SAP and Xerox.

Project Management

We can assist with all aspects of organisation including clear instruction around timings and participant expectations as well as tips on how your teams can make the most of their virtual and digital experiences.

Advantages for the virtual classroom delivery include:

  • Visualises the buyer-seller role plays in a way that is becoming increasingly common for many people in their real selling lives
  • No need for participants to travel to a physical location, they can ‘attend’ anywhere with a good internet connection minimising work schedule disruption
  • Virtual classrooms can reduce travel costs - particularly useful for geographically spread groups where bringing whole teams together would be a major undertaking
  • Spreading our skills and practice opportunities allows on the job practice between sessions – the perfect opportunity to try new behaviours and then reflect on those experiences during virtual sessions with a trained Huthwaite facilitator
  • The sessions are recorded and made available for review after the sessions so participants can remind themselves of particular areas if needed.


The Behaviour Change journey

The participant experiences a learning journey over a period of weeks and is supported throughout. The participant, their peers and their coach interact within a social collaborative platform during the knowledge acquisition and workplace transfer stages of the learning journey. Exercises and assignments are completed and feedback and guidance are provided within the platform.

Importantly, participants have a greater opportunity to learn and interact with each other as they progress.
