“As we quip at 1080 Group, ‘Microsoft will teach you how to use Word, but they don’t teach you how to be a writer.’ Webinar tools are awesome, but there’s more to a powerful and engaging web presentation than software."
Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 1, 2010
1080 Group, LLC, web seminar soft skills research and training firm, announced that The Virtual Presenter’s Handbook, has released as an e-book.
“As we quip at 1080 Group, ‘Microsoft will teach you how to use Word, but they don’t teach you how to be a writer’” said Roger Courville, the book’s author and Principal of 1080 Group. “Webinar tools are awesome, but there’s more to a powerful and engaging web presentation than software.”
“Any communications scientist will tell you that the medium of communication affects how a message is transmitted and received. The good news is that web conferencing/webcasting/webinars are easier to do than ever thanks to the great work done by Webex, Adobe Connect, GoToMeeting and many others. The bad news is that most presenters miss a great opportunity to rock the house because they talk AT people instead of WITH them. I wrote this book for anyone who wants to go beyond “7 Tips for Webinars” that tell you you should use a poll. We’re beyond that now.”
The Virtual Presenter’s Handbook, released in summer 2009, is 130+ pages of Courville’s experience presenting at more than 500 webinars in the ten years he’s been in the business. The ebook is now available at ebookmall.com (http://bit.ly/bCQX1A,), but for those who prefer hard copy editions are available at amazon.com.
