“Webinar Master” on the way


My e-book “Webinar Master” is due to be published on November 16th by British e-book specialist Canelo.

The book is based on my experience coaching speakers for, hosting, and delivering hundreds of webinars since 2007, largely for the Learning and Skills Group (LSG), an international community of about 8,000 learning and development professionals.

It will make you a webinar master – if you put it into practice.

I’ve had the good fortune to work with some wonderful, experienced speakers, and had the delight of coaching some first time speakers to deliver tremendously powerful sessions. I’ve seen what works and have built up a methodology for delivering great webinars, consistently. The fruits of that experience are distilled here for you.

As well as the triumphs, I’ve also had my share of disasters – from the time the webinar service failed 2 minutes before we were due to start (and me in a New York hotel room in my pyjamas at 5 am) to the time both my broadband internet feeds at my home office failed and we ran the session through my mobile phone’s Wi-Fi tethering. In all the hundreds of sessions I’ve been responsible for in that period, we’ve only once been unable to get on air.

It’s been an exciting journey, and the thrill hasn’t gone yet. I still get excited before we kick off one of our Thursday LSG sessions, and still feel that buzz when a presentation and the ensuing Q&A have gone particularly well. And after every webinar, I want to do it all over again.

I hope that after reading this book you, too, will enjoy presenting through webinars, and that you will find the same energy and excitement in using this vital modern medium of communication.

  1. Well done on writing the book, Don. Not easy to do, and requires a lot of time and energy. Quite an energising experience I’ve found. Hope it does well for you.

    • Thanks Sukh, not a long book, only 15,000 words. My bigger book – Implementing Learning Technologies at Work – is a larger item at about 70,000, and will be out next June.

      As for energising – yes. Enjoyable, too. Will it “do well” for me? I don’t expect to make any money out of it. I really just wanted to share what I’ve learned and other people have found useful.

  2. Sounds like it’ll be a great read – I loved the anecdotes here about things that’ve gone wrong!

    By the way, you might like some of my own posts about presenting online. There are some very novel suggestions there – aimed at making the experience less painful for the audience!

    Would be delighted if you’d like to agree or disagree on any points, and by all means leave a link back to one of your own posts if you’d like to.
