Using Speaking Skills Virtually – Teleseminars & Webinars

Virtual eventsThese days you can have a thriving public speaking career without ever leaving your home. Teleseminars and webinars are fairly easy and often inexpensive to produce and offer you a way to grow your business without having to travel around the country or the globe.

If you want to have more features, such as allowing your participants to listen to the call over the web, or even to break them up into subgroups you can look into paid conference call services, as well.
