You know when you agree to do something and then when the time comes you think ‘why did I agree to that’?
Well that was how I felt this morning. I had been asked to do a Seminar on our products – well Raising Furniture Remotely to be exact and as we are in the midst of a horrific pandemic, the seminar was going to be a Webinar.
I was so nervous. I know my product and what I wanted to say but it is so weird doing a Webinar when you know people are watching but you can’t gauge their reactions or see any of them. What if no one logged on to watch? Or what if I fell over!!?
I set everything up and ran through it – the sound quality wasn’t very good! Luckily I was able to do it in the showroom at Head Office but it was so empty that there was a massive echo. We dragged furniture around to try and muffle it and got the camera set up. Then we waited… and Oh My Word!!! So many people logged on to listen!! 422 to be exact with over 1000 people registering!
I am so happy and overwhelmed by the response! Thank you to everyone who logged on to watch – I hope that you all took something away with you and that I was some help.
Special thank you to Stuart Barrow and his team at OTAC and Promoting Independence for suggesting I do this and hosting it.
I think sometimes you just have to come out of your comfort zone and get on with it. I enjoyed it immensely and hope to do more in the future.
If you did watch this afternoon – apologies for the sound – promise it will be better next time! And please if you have any questions don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org
