With the COVID-19 pandemic, everything and everyone is moving into a virtual world. LGIT Smart Solutions was ahead of this curve and we share our thoughts and experiences on “Going Virtual” in this blog with our customers and partners.
With 2020 being the year of upheaval in the world, business has had to evolve and adapt to the changes thrust upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has forced everyone to pause, reflect and evaluate how we were doing things in the past and how we need to change these actions to ensure a more sustainable future – for ourselves as individuals, for our businesses and for the planet.
Prior to the pandemic, LGIT had already anticipated the changes in the learning and capacity development sector moving more towards Virtual Instructor-led Training (VILT). In 2015, LGIT evolved its business and started developing its online virtual learning platforms and capabilities. .
Our foresight prepared us well to cope with the changes that the pandemic brought and within six weeks we were able to deliver virtual instructor-led learning to 600 students in Kenya, on a Microsoft technology course.
Due to the shift in trends towards virtual learning, our training facilities and in the Woodlands office park were not being utilised to its capacity and LGIT decided to move its business premises. Natascha Prussen, Managing Director of LGIT says, “Our move to The Campus is symbolic of how we've evolved as an organisation. Our new premises are in a beautiful space that is modern and fresh. It provides an opportunity to work with other IT businesses who are committed to enabling customers on their digital transformation journey. We love working with like-minded people, where we foster and grow new creative learning solutions.”
Our new space still offers the opportunity for face-to-face classroom training, should the need arise, through utilising shared learning spaces. LGIT will continue to deliver the quality learning experiences that our valued customers are accustomed to, whilst being adaptable to the different needs of each customer.
We look forward to reconnecting with our customers at our new offices and welcome you to contact us for a visit with all COVID protocols in place.
