Come, let’s engage in a little blue sky speculation. This is going to be one of my infrequent posts talking about financial considerations, so disclaimers are important: I have ZERO insider information or informants providing any facts or rumors that... Continue reading

Well, we’re getting towards that time of year again… The “danger weeks” when locations start changing between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time. Here in the United States, some states (or even localities within a state) may choose to use... Continue reading

LogMeIn rebranded today to better reflect their primary product line. The company is now known as GoTo. Product names that we care about on this blog remain largely the same, but now get a space in the name. So GoToMeeting... Continue reading

I’m going to write about ongoing lawsuits involving webinar software vendors. I should start with a disclaimer that I have ZERO legal training and no firsthand knowledge of the case specifics. I am an unbiased external observer interested in what’s... Continue reading

I am an old, white, cisgender male. A product of my culture, my upbringing, and my practical work/life experiences. Why start with an introduction like that? Because I am going to delve into a controversial topic and my identity is... Continue reading

2021 was another busy year for webinars as the pandemic plodded on and remote collaboration continued to be the norm. My busy season went later than usual, with webinars booked right up through Christmas week! But now we’re into the... Continue reading

It’s time once again to revisit a controversial topic. Is the conventional wisdom about webcam presentations correct? Does having the presenters appear on camera enhance the experience? Whenever I write about this, I have to couch the subject in disclaimers.... Continue reading

My car has OnStar driver assistance. I tap a button and a live representative comes on the line. I was driving the other day and asked them for directions to a restaurant. (Yes, this is a post about webinars. Stay... Continue reading

Webex put up a blog post announcing support for attendee-selectable interpretation channels in online meetings. This is a good thing and increasingly crucial in reaching international audiences. One of the features I really like in the Webex implementation is a... Continue reading

Interesting... Mine hasn't caught up yet! I'm still seeing the behavior (and I'm on O365 as well). I'll keep checking over the next few days. Thanks for the update.

Engagement, engagement, ENGAGEMENT! It’s the buzzword darling of our industry right now. You can’t click on a link about webinars, webcasts, and virtual presenting without encountering a sentence urging you to find ways to better engage your audience. Want to... Continue reading

Well, that’s a confrontational title, isn’t it? The last three presentations I watched all suffered from the same fundamental mistake. It’s very common and there’s a good chance your presentations might feature this design error as well. Now when I... Continue reading

Allow me to share a personal story. I wonder if it might resonate with you? I’m giving a presentation next week. I carefully planned my story flow, interaction breaks, and content. I went through all my slides, speaking out loud,... Continue reading

Here’s a strange one for you! I discovered a curious behavior in Microsoft PowerPoint that looked like a bug to me. But I found that Microsoft considers it intentional designed behavior. Take a look and see what you think. As... Continue reading

Time for another episode of presentation myth busters. You may already be familiar with the oft-quoted nonsense about “Mehrabian finding that 93% of communication is nonverbal.” You may have read my own breakdown of why “The 10-20-30 Rule” isn’t a... Continue reading
