The Presentations will be operated on a group membership “rotational” basis.

Following the completion of the presentations in the webinar room, a Q&A session will follow with questions being submitted to the Controller via the chat box facility. Each question being directed at the relevant speaker.

Questions that require a lengthy explanation (longer than 2 minutes) should be dealt with offline via personal connection

Following the Q&A session the time remaining in the room can be used for private message networking

A Powerpoint Presentation.

A Social Media You Tube video presentation.

A Screen Share facility.

This allows the presenter to present their information via sharing their screen. It is advisable to have tested the accuracy and functionality of the screen share prior to the meeting by communication with the controller

Networking

As members will be logging in with their name and business type.
This information will be seen in a column of the left hand side of the screen inside the room.
There is a private message facility within the webinar room.
This allows a member to identify those individuals and the types of business that there would be the potential for a working synergy in terms of business referrals.

Without any barrier a private message can be sent, introducing yourself.

This relationship can be developed both online and if the group is a locally organised group , through meeting up for a coffee so that a more in depth “one on one” discussion can take place. This can result in really getting to know other members and the way they operate more fully. If the group is spread geographically then the connection can be developed offline using phone, Skype, Webinar tools, KwikiChat etc.

Over time relationships will develop and social functions can result as a “spin off”. This can enhance connections and expand membership.
