Online Training for TV development execs during COVID-19

Taking TV Development Online

Remotely running your development meetings? Learn how to connect and collaborate creatively with your team!

With everyone focusing on development, are you getting the best from your team while working remotely?

The broadcasters have launched new/increased development funds, are you and your team working to the best of your ability to respond to the call to action?

The impact of COVID-19 has meant that TV Development teams are now working remotely from home, struggling to collaborate, brainstorm and develop ideas in this difficult environment.

Being creative in isolation is challenging and TRC are keen to help as practically as we can – through the provision of high quality training delivered online.
