Train employees with the help of an AI assistant


Let’s analyze how to simplify and speed up the process of creating online presentations for corporate training, while increasing their effectiveness.

Is it really needed to prove the benefits of training and professional development for employees, representatives, and partners nowadays? Probably not. The point of view of the great Henry Ford, who said: “The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay!”

However, we must honestly admit that very often online presentations and webinars for internal company needs are much less interesting and original than those for working with clients. At one time, they were a real magic wand for managers responsible for employee training and similar tasks, making a real revolution in this process. Visibility on the one hand and time-saving on the other. However, inexorable progress has negated these advantages. Static, templated, boring slides complete with a tired presenter – this is, if I may say so, the “format” of online training events that most readers of this text have probably encountered. 79% of attendees of online events believe that most of them are boring (according to Visme). We suspect that in the case of corporate training materials, the statistics are even less optimistic. 

What’s the matter? What happened to a convenient and effective tool? The answer is simple. It is being used too much. Firstly, because the pace of updating professional information has accelerated dramatically. In other words, new skills, tools and methods have to be mastered much more often than ten or twenty years ago. Second, online presentations are often used to master related information. Safety and cybersecurity, corporate policy and professional ethics, disease prevention and compliance with sanitary standards – all this and much more is often the subject of internal corporate online presentations. In addition, online presentations are often used not even for training, but simply to inform employees. For example, about ideas that other employees have.

So, the burden of preparing and conducting all of the above usually falls on the shoulders of only a few people. As a rule, these are department heads, HR managers, and marketers. Mind you, they are already overworked and often perceive presentations as something optional and unimportant. Even if they understand the importance of corporate training.

No wonder they get tired of online events and often use the same templates and solutions. Unfortunately, not many companies think about hiring an individual or a team of specialists to create and deliver online presentations (Decktopus).

In addition to the above, there are also purely subjective reasons related to personal abilities, talents, and preferences. In the case of online presentations, a great example is the fear of public speaking

Let’s say an HR person can be an excellent specialist in analyzing resumes, conducting interviews, and preparing training materials. But public speaking, even if it’s just a simple recording on camera, is, just not his cup of tea. It’s not surprising. About 75% of people suffer from a fear of public speaking (according to the Journal of Education and Educational Development). 

Fortunately, the ancient principle that for every challenge created by progress, progress itself provides the answer, works perfectly in this case. The authors and hosts of online events, including corporate training specialists, have a new generation of products based on artificial intelligence that uses Big Linguistic Models.

The idea of an AI assistant for a presenter is best realized with Pitch Avatar.

It will create a script, write and translate the text

Most authors need more than 8 hours to create a presentation (according to the Infographic Design Team). They spend a significant portion of this time on the script and text, putting the work on visual content in second priority. Not on purpose. It just so happens that by the time all the texts are ready, there is little time left to create illustrations. But the problem is that viewers remember visual information better (according to Duarte). 

One of the basic functions of Pitch Avatar is to help you create script. At the same time, if needed, it is able to translate the text into other languages. This frees up enough time for the author to work on the visual component of the presentation or webinar. 

Personalize your presentation

It’s no secret that personalized content is better received. However, while people try to keep this in mind when dealing with clients, personalization is often considered unnecessary for presentations aimed at corporate training. And in vain. Personalization emphasizes respect for employees, increasing the level of trust and team cohesion. 

Conduct a presentation and answer questions

We have already mentioned that for many people, public speaking is not even a professional problem, but a purely psychological one. In addition, frequent presentations can lead to presenter burnout. Not to mention the fact that the actual process of presenting or recording takes time. 

Pitch Avatar completely eliminates these problems. You can upload your photo and the text of your presentation in any language. It will voice it over in the chosen voice and intonation, animating and synchronizing the image. In other words, you can create a virtual avatar of yourself, or you can “entrust” the presentation to a virtual, purely digital character. Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to one character. This way, you can use a great technique for keeping the audience’s attention – alternating between different speakers, including a combination of real people and virtual characters. This is especially important if the training presentation or webinar is quite long. In the case of training events, this is not uncommon.

The functions of Pitch Avatar as a presenter are not limited to one speech. When properly configured, it interacts with the audience. For example, it records comments and answers questions in cases where the presenter has decided to record them in advance. If the virtual presenter encounters a question that he or she cannot answer, it will call a human presenter who can join the presentation at any time. 

Allows learning at a convenient time

In conclusion, a presentation created with Pitch Avatar has an advanced system of prompt communication between viewers of online content and its author. There is no need to gather employees for a specific time. It is enough to send them a link to the finished presentation, giving them the opportunity to study it when it is really convenient for each of them. As soon as an employee starts viewing it, you will receive a notification on your smartphone, and a report on user activity. This way, you will know for sure that your material has been studied, and if needed, you can connect to the viewing for live communication. 

Pitch Avatar is able to quickly and efficiently solve all the tasks facing a corporate training specialist, freeing them from routine and giving them opportunities to implement new original ideas.

Good luck and successful presentations to everyone!
