Program Description

Virtual training offers benefits and frustrations to both trainers and participants. Join Wayne Turmel, author of several books on the subject, as he shares:

  • Why webinars matter to trainers

  • The 4 reasons trainers hate webinars

  • Tips to overcome each objection

  • Addressing your questions  (If you would like to send questions to Wayne prior to the meeting, please email them to Wayne@GreatWebMeetings.com)


Wayne Turmel, with GreatWebMeetings.com, is our presenter. Wayne has a long history as a presenter, trainer and is an expert in communication skills and management. Previously as the Director of Faculty for Communispond, Wayne has trained Fortune 500 companies in Sales and Presentation Skills. For the last five years, he’s been focused on teaching people how to use web-based presentation tools to do more than present, but to communicate and connect. His passion for the topic stems from his background, not as a technology buff, but as someone committed to helping people get the best out of their people and themselves no matter the medium.
