A Webinar, in case you’ve not attended one, is an online presentation—a “Web seminar”—on a topic of interest to a specific audience. MMS Online has Webinars coming soon from various sponsors, on metalworking topics including technology adoption, maintenance and inspection.

To be blunt, the failing of most Webinars is that they are too long. Many are more than half an hour. In my case, attention starts to flag away from the onscreen PowerPoint presentation before then.

But hang tough! One of the most valuable parts of a Webinar comes when the planned presentation is done. Most Webinars include Q&A sessions. MMS Online’s Webinars enable audience members to submit questions during the presentation. Therefore, at the end of the Webinar, you get to hear what questions other shops are asking, and—depending on the size of the audience—the chance is quite good that you’ll hear your own question addressed.

Webinar presenters are typically experts on the topic. So here is how to work a Webinar: Think first about what information you really want to learn. Think about what questions you want answered. Have them ready, and—if they are not answered by the presentation—submit them during the event, so that you might hear the presenter give them his or her off-the-cuff response.
