Webinars have gotten a bad reputation. Too many dense, slow-moving slide decks presented by long-winded speakers have caused people to think of webinars as snoozers. Not only that--plenty of them ooze sales and marketing messages that make participants feel used.
That’s why I am here to defend and tell you about a new webinar series I am involved in.
The series, Virtual Learning and Virtual Leadership: Getting Results in a Wired World, launches on March 27. Its first webinar is Executive Presence: How to Say It So They Hear It And Act On It, presented by communication expert Anne Warfield.
The series features four more webinars in 2013:
- Leading Collaborative Virtual Teams: Managing Dispersed Teams that Get Results, led by leadership expert and webinar guru Cynthia Clay
- The Connected Leader: How To Improve Results Through Conversations, by Halley Bock, president and CEO of Fierce, Inc.
- Writing in a Virtual World: How to Build Business Relationships One Message at a Time, which I am presenting
- Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Development at a Distance, featuring employee retention expert Beverly Kaye
If you are a manager or a team leader, or if you work in training and development, these communication webinars are designed for you. My session, Writing in a Virtual World, will give you lots of ideas about communicating well with people you never see but nevertheless rely on.
The reason I can wholeheartedly recommend this series is that I have worked with the series sponsor, NetSpeed Learning Solutions, for many years. They offer fast-paced, practical webinars in which participants can really engage by asking questions (in real time), expressing their opinions in polls, and testing their understanding of the material.
You can learn more about Virtual Learning and Virtual Leadership: Getting Results in a Wired World by visiting the webpage and clicking on links for the five presentations. You can register now for any webinar that interests you. Registration is free.
