I’ve created this very short extra episode of the 21st Century Work Life podcast, just to let you know that registration is now open for the course Virtual not Distant and that I have a little discount for listeners of this show.



Virtual not Distant, which is an online course for managers and leaders of virtual teams, and indeed anyone who wants to improve how their virtual team works, will run on 21 September, until 22 November. The course is timebound because I want us to have quality online discussions and quality online events and also, because I firmly believe that you have a greater chance of completing and, more importantly, applying what you’ve learned if you’re timebound and in a small group.

So, there are only 12 places available.

Plus, if you want to obtain a certificate endorsed by the ILM, you will need to complete a small number of assessments, which have actually been designed for you to help you think about how to apply what you’ve discovered to your own team or your own situation. You will have until February to submit the assessments and, if you don’t think you’re going to have time to take the assessed option, you can opt for a Development Certificate.



Now, I’ve already talked about the course content in the podcast before, so if you want more details, do head over to,



And if you like what you see there, then,  the code PODCAST you can get 10% off both the normal price £450 or around $690 US Dollars, or, if you book before 31 July you can get that same discount off the early bird price which already has a 20% off. If you don’t feel like doing the maths right now, Just head over to and on the registration page, you can enter the code PODCAST and the system will calculate the exact amount for you.



So that’s my little thank you for spending an hour, more or less, with me and my guests every week.



If you are not quite ready to commit to a nine week course, with hangouts, online discussions and coaching, then feel free to try out a mini-course I’ve created which incorporates some of the materials of the module on Visibility. You can just register on that straightaway by going to the same website



If you do register on that course, make sure to drop me a line at some point and tell me what you think.



And talking of getting in touch, I’ve decided to set up an email address for you to get in touch about this podcast. I’ve decided to go down the gmail route because I find it incredibly useful in many ways, including the fact that it can then link to Google Drive, a calendar etc So, the new email if you want to get in touch with me, is



So you can use that address to ask any questions about anything you hear on the podcast, about anything related to virtual teams etc. I think it’s time for me to open up a bit more the podcast, now that I feel like I kind of know what I’m doing. So, if you want to get in touch,



And there’s always twitter, which I love, my handle there is PilarOrti



So, many thanks for listening. If you check out and have any questions, however small, or however big actually, about the course then do get in touch.



Have a lovely rest of the day.
