The Webinar Manifesto: Never Design or Deliver Bad Webinars Again!

The Webinar Manifesto: Never Design or Deliver Bad Webinars Again!
September 20, 2012 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET
Matt Murdoch, Director(FranklinCovey )
Treion Muller, Chief eLearning Architect(FranklinCovey )
We're declaring war-on bad webinars. And we want you to join us. Like most revolutions, this one is both against something and for something.

We're against mundane talking head PowerPoint presentations. We're against doing things the same way we used to. We're against working alone in silos.

We’ve tolerated and nurtured the webinar as it is for years. We’ve made some real advances and done some very cool things. We’re closer than ever to getting past the machine and up next to the people. But, we still have a long way to go. And, we don’t believe that webinars can continue to evolve incrementally, like some single celled amoeba waiting another million years to get closer to the edge of the ooze and start growing some legs. We must speed up the evolutionary process. This needs to be more caterpillar/butterfly and less dinosaur/human.

And so we’re declaring war—on bad webinars, and we want you to join us.

We're for captivating our audience through eloquent delivery and beautiful design. We're for pushing the limits of our technology. We're for amplifying what works and what doesn't. We're for synergy and sharing. We’re for better transformational webinar design and delivery.

Learn directly from the organizers of this movement-two of the industry's leaders in webinar design and delivery. Join the movement and discover how to ensure your webinar experience is not a bad one.

Based on our newest book, The Webinar Manifesto, this session will lay out the several Webinar Manifesto Principles that you must live by if you want to design and deliver killer webinars.

Who Should Participate
HR Professionals, Training Managers, Marketers, Sales people...and anyone who uses webinars to teach, market, or sell.
What You Will Learn
1. Don't Default: Learn four steps to move beyond the default settings of your webinar platform so you can creatively enhance the learner's experience. 2. Shut Down the Ugly: Discover the keys of beautifying all aspects of your webinar: from the email invitations, to PowerPoints, to handouts and the webinar experience itself. 3. Captivate or Alienate: Come away with the skills to engage your audience and hold them virtually accountable through what they see, hear and do during the webinar.

Shutting down the ugly is a common theme in many courses dealing with presentations... more time spent on visual captivation techniques would have been great. 4 / 5

The slides with less writing were more striking and engaging but it makes it more difficult to revisit the slides without the audio in order to refresh my memory later. 4 / 5
