Okay, I’m going to say it.
“Saint Patrick’s Day will look a little different this year.”
Raise your hand if you’re sick of hearing “_____ will look a little different this year.”
But the good news is, you can still sport your green virtually, even if you’re not headed out to a parade or an Irish restaurant to celebrate.
Delivering an eLearning course or virtual presentation?
Download Shamrock eLearning template for Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline, or Lectora or get the same verdant green template for Microsoft PowerPoint.
(Think a template named “Shamrock” is a little too on the nose? I also like this one called “Gecko,” which is a fun pop of neon green against black.)
Become a leprechaun for the day.
Just for kicks, I might change my profile picture to one of these leprechaun stock photos for the day. If I use this stock photo of a leprechaun holding a clover in front of his or her face, no one will know it’s not me, right?
As an added bonus, I can then refuse to turn my webcam on in any meetings. Everyone knows leprechauns aren’t that technologically advanced.
We also have plenty of red-headed cutout characters in both photo-realistic and illustrated styles.
Take a trip to Ireland with a Zoom background from the Emerald Isle.
Perhaps you want to take all your calls from the famous Cliffs of Moher, in front of a medieval castle, or against the backdrop of rolling hills, stone walls, and adorable cottages. I might use a different one for each video call I have on Saint Patrick’s day!
If you're the unlucky host and not just an attendee of a virtual meeting on Saint Patrick's day, might I suggest these 10 virtual meeting engagement tips to keep your attendees interested?
I think a Saint Patrick's Day theme is just what tip #2 (Make a Theme) needs. Everyone must wear green! Speak in an Irish accent whenever it's your turn to present. Mail each member of your team a potato ahead of time! (This is a real thing, see Anonymous Potato, Potato Parcel, and Mail a Spud if you don't believe me.)
There are so many ways to have a little virtual fun on Saint Patrick's day, whether it's through your eLearning courses or your Zoom meetings. I hope the luck of the Irish is with all of you today!
