Published on

You've been asked (or maybe you actually volunteered) to do a webinar. Now what? You've sat through your share of horrendous webinars, and you don't want to inflict one on anyone else. How do you prepare? How is a webinar different from giving an in-person presentation? How do you keep people interested so they don't just go spend the whole time on Facebook? The questions can be overwhelming and the challenges numerous. Find out what works and what doesn't, and how to keep your audience engaged. Learn how to avoid the common mistakes that newbie presenters make. Discover what it takes to get asked to do it again--you can make your first (or next) webinar ROCK!
