You have been asked (or maybe you volunteered) to do a webinar. Now what? You’ve almost certainly sat through your share of horrendous webinars, and you don’t want to inflict one on anyone else.

- 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 social media?
The questions can be overwhelming and the challenges numerous. Find out what works and what does not, 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 get asked do it again–you can make your first (or next) webinar ROCK!
