Whether you are selecting high quality webinars for your organization or creating webinars for your clients, it’s critical to ensure that these webinars will further productivity and provide valuable content and important skill sets to attendees.

With the rise of webinar popularity for training and development, webinars must provide a positive impact, a high level of engagement, interactivity and excellent content quality. It is essential to evaluate both the quality of content and the way it’s delivered – in ways
that take into account how people like to learn. When successful, a powerful combination of methods will help take basic webinars to the next level -- the “Guru” webinar.

Join us as presenters Mitchell Levy and Sharyn Fitzpatrick discuss methodologies, insights, successes, and lessons learned from a “guru” series of webinars they developed for Cisco Systems. They will share with us important tips for transforming basic informational webinars into more advanced, interactive sessions.

During this presentation, you will learn how to ensure that:
  • A webinar’s content flows logically and creatively so that it engages and educates the target audience
  • The visual elements of the webinar provides flow that aids content processing for attendees
  • Information delivery is managed within time constraints
  • The power of webinar tools are maximized to communicate effectively and efficiently in an auditory, visual, and kinesthetic manner
When all aspects work in sync, the combination of quality content and delivery in a webinar assists the presenter in sharing his/her knowledge, expertise, and insights with a large audience base without geographic constraints.


Mitchell Levy is author of 15 business books and is CEO of, whose business units focus on physical and e-book publishing (over 185 titles published to date) and corporate learning. He has created over 70 physical courses at Silicon Valley universities, numerous online courses, and focused on the successful content delivery of over 500 speakers at large-scale conferences. Mitchell sits on the board of directors of Rainmaker Systems, a leading global provider of B2B e-commerce and training solutions.
