Webinars are a powerful medium of learning delivery across varied learner groups - small or large. Easy to access as well as convenient, webinars are an effective mode of learning for professionals who can fit in the short bursts of learning into their schedules.

A successful web event can help strengthen a company’s brand awareness, increase exposure in the market, and generate qualified sales leads. If done right, it can elevate an organization’s credibility and reinforce its position as an industry thought leader. However, running a high-profile web event can be intimidating and challenging.

Webinars are a cost-effective alternative to in-person meetings, and they allow companies to expand their reach, target more people more often, and deliver a compelling, fully branded experience. In order for webinars to be successful, they need to be engaging, provide value to the audience and offer actionable- takeaways.

  • Discuss how to design and implement an engaging learning experience.
