When Webinars Attack! 
Getting from Tedious to Terrific
- Webinar (11/19/20)

You have been asked (or 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. Some questions immediately come to mind:
  • 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 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 do it again -- you can make your first (or next) webinar ROCK!

Virtual Trainer: Laura Solomon

She has been doing web development and design for twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She specializes in developing with Drupal. She has written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics.
