More about Roger:

Roger Courville has been called “the Michael Jordan of online presentations and virtual classes” and “the ultimate content marketing weapon.”

Most of the time, though, he’s a just an exceedingly normal guy who speaks, trains, consults, and writes about psychosocial effectiveness when communicating via web/audio/video conferencing (e.g., webinars/web seminars, virtual presentations, webcasts, virtual classrooms).

A veteran of the conferencing industry (since the modem days of 1999), Roger has taught tens of thousands people worldwide, and he’s reached tens of thousands more with writing appearances, interviews, and while sitting in airports.

What else should you know?

  • He’s not a big fan of the word “webinar,” but he’s smart enough to use it on this site for SEO purposes.
  • He’s had the good fortune of delivering a TEDx talk…in the Cayman Islands
  • His future-thinking keynotes about trends, connectorship, and the impact of technology on relationship are more like pragmatic training sessions than “talk at you” keynotes.
  • His life calling is helping people have aha! moments, master new skills, and rock new stages.
  • He’s a good dad, bad guitarist, and pretty much eats anything. Loves habaneros.

Learn Professional Webinar Skills with Roger Courville

Tuesday February 7, 2017 8:00 PM EST to 9:00 PM EST
 

While much about giving a presentation online is the same as speaking in person, communicating through a webcast or any other form of online meeting is also different because of the nature of the medium.

Roger Courville

The second in our series of webinars exploring online presentation skills features Roger Courville, who has been called “the Michael Jordan of online presentations and virtual classes” and “the ultimate content marketing weapon.” He argues too many webinars are boring and still following the boilerplate format established in the 1990s rather than taking full advantage of the medium as it exists today.

Most of the time, though, he’s a just an exceedingly normal guy who speaks, trains, consults, and writes about psychosocial effectiveness when communicating via web/audio/video conferencing (e.g., webinars/web seminars, virtual presentations, webcasts, virtual classrooms).

A veteran of the conferencing industry (since the modem days of 1999), Roger has taught tens of thousands people worldwide, and he’s reached tens of thousands more with writing appearances, interviews, and while sitting in airports. See his full bio at the website of his company, EventBuilder.

In this webinar about webinars, Roger will share some of what he has learned and demonstrate a few essential techniques. (This event is part of a series: see also our January 25 interview with the Geeks on Tour about guerrilla marketing using online video tools).

Taking Public Speaking Online: Secrets of the Geeks on Tour

Geeks on Tour
Image from an episode of “What Does This Button Do?” the weekly live show of the Geeks on Tour, Chris and Jim Guld. The online promotions build on the audience they attract while roaming the country in their RV, giving seminars on technology for travelers, including smartphones and digital photography.

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. This event is part of a series: see also our February 7 event with Roger Courville on professional online presentation skills.
