“We need you to present this course.” Dreaded words for many of us that would prefer to get a back massage by a gorilla than to be in front of a camera. When I received this request, I felt a mix of excitement (I confess!) and, you guessed it: overwhelming fear. Spoiler alert: it was actually quite a fun and fulfilling experience so, for you, my fellow “camerafobics”, I’m sharing some tips to help you go through it and get a great result.
I’m proud to announce the launch of the bugle Academy. A new online academy with free courses on the topic of online corporate training, and aimed at professionals working in sales, customer success, marketing, operations, partner management, and human resources.
Different companies have different customer success approaches, and the decision between a low-touch or high-touch support model is usually dictated by strategic drivers as much as economic constraints.

At bugle, we were sorry to hear about Clayton Chistensen’s passing. He was one of the greatest innovation thinkers in the last decades. I’ve recently published a short article in his memory, which was motivated by my gratitude for having been his student. You can find the English version and the Portuguese original at the end of this article.
Sometimes you need to focus in just one task so, in this article, we’re showing you how to create a quicker access to your bugle platform (either as a student or as back office manager) that allows you to have a focused view, without other tabs or distractions.
Brands have been using the power of customer self-service to reduce costs and speed up processes for quite some time now: we just need to think of Ikea, petrol stations or self-service checkouts at the supermarket.

Oh, working from home, so comfortable and easy. Well… not quite!
If you think that working remotely means working from the couch in front of the TV with a snack in your hand, forget about it! It’s true that it has several advantages, like skipping morning traffic, avoiding getting all soaked in a rainy day or, my favourite, working from a terrace in a beautiful day.

And there’s also the loneliness issue to face. In other words, working remotely is not for everyone.
