It’s time to talk about webinar etiquette. We’ve been hosting a free monthly webinar since January of 2015 and as the events grow each month the chatter during the event increases. We love this feature but we’ve heard from a few attendees that some of the comments aren’t appropriate for the webinar and we wanted to take this opportunity to address webinar etiquette and protocol.
Here are a few quick tips.
- Introduce yourself in the chat and get to know fellow attendees.
- Share relevant strategies as well as resources with your fellow attendees.
- Keep your commentary positive and optimistic.
- Read pre-webinar messaging carefully.
- If you are having difficulty logging in, please follow the steps sent via email for troubleshooting guidance.
- If the difficulty continues, please check with your IT dept to make sure the site isn’t blocked by a Firewall.

Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. I’ve had a wonderful 6 days of vacation. I actually had a staycation. My daughter was visiting me and I had a great time playing tour guide and tourist in my own town, Las Vegas! Las Vegas truly is an exciting place to live and visit and not only because of the Strip. We went out to Red Rock Canyon which is breathtaking. We saw the Michael Jackson ONE Cirque du Soleil show which is lively and eye-catching.
I am well rested and ready to teach my high-end boot camp this week called World Class Assistant. This is a 4 day certification and designation program. We will have a very intimate group of attendees so each person gets special attention from me. I love teaching World Class Assistant as we dig deep into various topics including: Building a Strategic Partnership, Generational Communication, Being Future Focused, Decision Making, Creating a Career Portfolio and much more.
A World Class Assistant should be able to voice his or her opinion but, of course, you must do it tactfully. When I teach this piece of the program, after I review the strategies, I present the groups with a real-work scenario and then they practice how to effectively voice their opinion.
