Our Webinars

Leadership Through Data’s Webinars are not the traditional style, we use polls to help you get involved which will enhance the amount of information you retain. There are limited slide decks so, it’s just the host/trainer and participants. We encourage you to talk to us via chat box, and are known to play games and give out prizes too! Each session lasts roughly one hour, and every webinar is free to attend.

Please note: We record our webinars via Microsoft 365 Teams and are not able to guarantee your anonymity. If you do not agree to being recorded, but you still want to access the webinar, please continue to register for the webinar and we will email you a link to watch on-demand one week after the live recording date.

Viva Insights

Viva Insights is perhaps the most well recognised Viva module so far, as the tool which generates those daily and monthly emails.

Viva Insights is designed as a tool to support employee wellbeing and productivity, whilst improving the employee experience. This webinar will explore the ‘seeded’ version and the features included in Office 365 subscriptions as well as the premium features which unlock a wealth of organisational metrics.

Whilst the features of Viva Insight will benefit everyone, this webinar is best suited to decision makers, HR and IT staff.


Viva Connections

Viva Connections builds on the SharePoint Intranet and related resource, enhancing ease of access and maximising return on investment in existing content for all staff from the shop floor to the C-Suite.

Viva Connections is often the first module adopted and the only Viva module fully included in Office 365 subscriptions. The module and webinar is especially useful for internal communications teams as well as others involved in the deployment and maintenance of SharePoint Online and organisational intranet(s).


Viva Goals

Viva Goals was the 5th module added to the Viva Suite and used objectives and key results (OKRs) to bring organisational perspective to individual targets.

In this webinar we’ll consider the principles of OKRs and how Viva Goals can help organisations embed these into their day to day work and employee target setting.

This product and webinar is suited to those involved in setting company, team and organisational objectives as well as IT staff who will support the deployment.

Below you’ll find a few things we’ve spoken about in the past, so let us know if you have the appetite for them again, or if there’s anything else you want to hear us speak about.

Customer Comments

The idea of conducting polls throughout was great; really useful to benchmark against other public sector organisation and feel less ‘alone’ in the challenges faced. The content was also pragmatically framed, which I appreciate rather than just promoting pure best practice – the course leader recognized that no one is getting RM 100% right and every place has its own challenges.

Art Gallery

It was really good to get an overview of what is happening in other organizations and see where we sit in comparison to others. The general discussion prompted lot of thoughts for me and has really got me thinking. I found the trainers style to be very engaging. I felt this showed enthusiasm for the topic. There is nothing worse than an unenthusiastic trainer! The trainer held my attention well despite the course being online; I found myself nodding along with then throughout.
