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?
(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!
