Presentations are critical communications events for companies, because they're always given to inform or persuade, and the result of a presentation is almost always a decision.  For these reasons, the quality of the presentation content, materials and presenting skills are major factors in achieving the desired results from a presentation.  

A great presentation persuades and inspires; a poor presentation damages confidence in the ideas and the organization behind them. This webinar examines the three critical success factors for presenting - content, medium and delivery - and provides practical advice on optimizing each of these dimensions in your presentations.

‘Tis the season for Dickens: let’s take a look at webinar metrics of the past, present and future.

Modern marketers are becoming more and more sophisticated – and so are the webinars we are launching.  As our webinars become more advanced, the metrics we measure must evolve as well.  Relying solely on webinar registration and attendance rates to measure the success of a webinar are habits of the past.  Effectively tracking ROI and key performance metrics (KPIs) are critical to our future success as marketers.

Join Sharon Burton, content strategy consultant and author of 8 Steps to Amazing Webinars, and Jerry Rackley, Chief Analyst at Demand Metric, as they dive into the six key performance indicators that you should be measuring in webinar programs and how you go about capturing, analyzing and acting on that data.

BONUS: Attendees will get a FREE Webinar Metrics Dashboard Tool provided by Demand Metric.
