I worry about companies cutting out seminars, conferences, specialized training and meetings just because they’re feeling the squeeze of these challenging economic times.This thinking is what can drive our country even deeper into a recession. Employees and associates need inspiration, motivation and specialized knowledge now more than ever before.
If your company finds itself looking to cut training or meeting budgets, take advantage of Webinars. I know….they are not exactly the same thing as a big conference with networking and banquets. But a webinar is a great way to get your employees motivated and, if done right, an interactive webinar can be a really fun way to learn and to get motivated. The best part is that you can get a professional speaker to do a webinar for about half of their regular fee….maybe even less
Professional speakers spend a lot of time traveling. In fact, Dan Poynter, a self-publishing guru, quips, “My home is in Santa Barbara but I live on United Airlines.” Dan is not alone. Some speakers have as many as 250 travel dates each year. The thought of earning money from the comfort of their own desk and sleeping in their own bed is tempting. Very tempting.
If you are interested in bringing a webinar in to your company, please call us. We’ll set up everything. It’s a great, affordable way to bring specialized knowledge, inspiration and motivation to your team – anywhere, anytime.
