The topics of 2015/16 webinar series were chosen based on your feedback and cover various aspects of presenting, from programming and contract negotiation to budgeting for shows, sponsorship and strategic planning. You will also learn how to find audience, attract youth and improve your engagement by using social media.
To best address your needs, this year we’ve split the series into two levels, Introductory and Intermediate.
Introductory - These webinars are geared toward small budget, volunteer presenters with minimal staff. You’re new to the field of presenting or new to your role and want to learn the basics.
Intermediate - These webinars are geared toward small budget, volunteer presenters with minimal staff. You’re not new to the field of presenting or to your role, but you’d like to build on your past experiences and refine your skills.
There is no cost to view the webinar sessions. All you need is a phone line, computer and a high speed internet connection. Participants may join our virtual classroom by accessing a recorded video stream of the webinar online.
“[Adobe webinar platform] is an excellent tool. Makes participation much easier, since you can do it from any location with a phone or internet connection.”
