Thanks for attending our session, The 5 Reasons Your Virtual Events are Failing, at 21NTC! Here you’ll find the deck and additional resources from the presentation.

What we covered

Despite the many webinars that have been run this year, there are still a shocking number of disappointing, ineffective virtual events out there. Audiences have become fatigued by video and webinars during a year that became characterized by them, but webinars will still be a necessary medium for the success of virtual events through the pandemic and beyond. How can you avoid common webinar pitfalls and succeed?

This session will reveal some of the most common webinar mistakes and share best practices for increasing attendance, engagement, and follow-up after your online event. PRX has run numerous online events for organizations and individuals to sharpen skills, reduce barriers, and inspire the future of audio storytelling. Whole Whale has been running webinar training events for over 5 years and has had thousands of people come through our live training program and courses. Together, we’ve learned a number of valuable tips and tricks.
