The next WordPress for Toastmasters webinar on January 19 will feature a demo of the latest features of the software, recommendations on how to use one of these websites effectively, and answers to your questions. I am also doing a webinar later in the month on online presentation skills and have one on Jan. 10 that touches on how to organize your own low budget / no budget webinars (scroll down for details).

Webinar on WordPress for Toastmasters – club marketing, event scheduling, meeting role signups, and member management on WordPress, the world’s most popular web content management platform.
Webinar #2 is related to the RSVPMaker WordPress plugin, which is part of the WordPress for Toastmasters solution but can also be used for all sorts of event promotion and registration activities, including organizing webinars and collecting event fees online via PayPal. These tools are all available to you when you run a WordPress for Toastmasters website.

Gaining confidence as a speaker allows you to speak effectively in front of larger audiences. Why not a global audience? Products like YouTube Live and Facebook Live that are free to try make it relatively simple to create a webcast or live Internet video broadcast. The size of your audience is limited only by the interest you can generate. But do you know how to adapt skills you learned behind a lectern to webcasting and live video?
The first installment of our series of features on online presentation skills features, Jim and Chris Guld, whose business Geeks on Tour offers technology tutorials for travelers. They find customers for their core subscription-based business partly by traveling the country in their RV, giving educational seminars at RV meets. But the other way they find their audience is with a weekly live Internet TV show.
When not on the road, they make their home base in Ft. Lauderdale and are members of Early Bird Toastmasters.
In our webinar, we will ask ask what they have learned about effective Internet video and have them demonstrate how to give a good tutorial in this medium.
