Live Web Events: Empowering Ourselves for Success

The decision to integrate web-conferencing or virtual events in my list of skills is proving to be a great decision! A consulting organization, which I am partnering with, is at the second stage of a competition for a large government contract that requires doing live training and meeting over the web. I have noticed over the last few months that such contracts are becoming increasingly popular.

I believe learning how to lead and participate in live web events is a definite way to empower ourselves for success in the future. What do you think? Please take a few seconds and answer the following two poll questions.

Thank you for your contribution.

Get Connected, Get productive – Mobility Not Required

Yesterday I had a wonderful meeting in my home office, with my Pajama-pants on, and no make-up. In this disorderly state, I was hesitant to poke my head outside, for fear that someone I know would see me. Fortunately, the members of my Church’s Communication Commission, with whom I was meeting virtually on WebEx, couldn’t see much below my shoulders; and if they could, I believe they wouldn’t care.

You see, we were connecting and getting some serious work done. Best of all, we did not have to take one step out of the convenience of our homes.

Below is shown the meeting window, with our agenda on PowerPoint, list of participants and a picture of me on Webcam (whenever someone speaks, he or she is shown on the screen).

Meeting for approximately one hour, we accomplished various tasks. This included decided on a name for a newsletter and completely planning the first issue. Plus we had ample time to check-in with each other.

Just about everyone seems limited by time, money, transportation or mobility. That is certainly one reason why virtual collaboration is slowly taking over the world.

A stoke has limited my mobility somewhat, but not my ability to connect face to face with the world, and give my all for the good of the people and organizations I serve. I am committed to using and teaching others to use virtual technology (WebEx for the time being) to connect, accomplish the results they want in their lives, and to become a more productive contribution to themselves and the world.

How can virtual collaboration help you get more connected and productive?

Web-Conferencing Can Give You New Life

When a misfortune in life left me barely mobile and unable to work, I found a way to get back in the game. I attended and lead seminars, participated in meetings, and served on leadership committees – all from the comforts of my home. Web-conferencing brought me back to life.

I know now that team learning, serving, and collaboration are never out of our reach, even when we think we are alone and there is no hope of finding the collaboration we need. No matter where we are, as long as we can touch a keyboard, speak into a computer microphone, or share ourselves through a webcam, the world is our partner.

In the next two months, I will be collaborating with subject matter experts to offer various programs, that can be accessible wherever we are, via web-conferencing. I would love to know some things you would like information about or training in – and you would like to do so from the location of your choice. In addition, these are things which are so important to you that you would pay a reasonable fee for the information or training.
