Keys to a Great Webinar
Using online tools such as web conferencing platforms might be a great thing to incorporate into your business to reach current or potential clients and increase people’s knowledge or awareness about your topic. But how can you use these tools effectively and make sure you’re not “lopsided lecturing” online? Picking the right platform for a webinar is one thing, figuring out how to lead a great session with it is another. In this dynamic face-to-face session you’ll learn the “keys” necessary to plan for and facilitate an effective and interactive webinar online. We’ll explore how to engage your participants, keep them focused and contributing, and gather their feedback so that you can learn and continue to grow in your facilitation practice online.
