Speakers and Trainers are a CHALLENGE to Event Planners

I am attending a great conference today, The Virtual Edge, which is going on physically in Santa Clara, California and also being webcast and brought into several virtual platforms so that people can attend from all over the globe.

A planner from Disney was on a panel and he said that one of the challenges to pulling off successful virtual events is “Getting presenters or trainers up to speed with the technology.  Most are not there.”  This really hit me and made me sad to think that professional speakers and trainers are seen as a CHALLENGE to pulling off successful events using the latest in technology.

As professional content deliverers, we need to be leading the way, not chasing the bus!  Whether it is webinars, teleseminars, live video-streaming, or virtual world events, it is time to get out front and lead the way.  Quit being one of the challenges.

If you need someone to walk you through any of this give me a Tweet– a Facebook shout out or even an old fashioned email or phone call! 🙂 We hold regular MeetUps in our virtual world campus where you can practice as you learn to grow your biz–ask me for information on My VSTA (virtual speaker’s and trainer’s association)
