The Webinar Blog — Still More Questions About Webinar Presentation

Jesse: What is the most embarrassing experience you have encountered?

Answer: I don’t think I want to answer this! I refuse to state whether these suggestions come from personal experience or clients, but here are some suggestions:

  • On your pre-show checklist, include the item “Use the restroom.” ‘Nuff said.
  • Write down the names of your co-presenters and moderator. Even if they are your closest friends and coworkers. Some day your brain will go on vacation right as you need to introduce them.
  • If sharing your computer desktop, remove personal photos as background wallpaper, hide icons mentioning games and competing products, and turn off instant messenger and email. Do you really want your lover’s sexy message to you transmitted for the world to see?
  • If you work from a home office, keep the pets and children out of the room. The sound of a coughed up hairball is not attractive for your remote audience.

  • Hi, just an extra check to your third item.

    I have never done this myself, but I have seen presentations where the presenter goes to search for his file, and there in the explorer window are a bunch of embarrassingly named files 'My CV.doc', “Urgent extension of overdraft.doc' etc etc.
