Andrey Skvortsov: The Lecture as a One-Man Show

May 28, 2014, 19:00 master class


Say you produce some fantastic video courses; your webinars and online lectures are chock full of relevant and insightful content. And people are happy to watch you and hear what you have to say. Only instead of the 100,000 views you had expected, you’ve only racked up a couple of hundred.

How do you make a public lecture that will appeal to the maximum number of audience members? And how can you break away from your narrow professional circle of viewers to reach out to a wider audience? One strategy is to transform your presentation into “Laptop Theater”! In his unique master class, Andrey Skvortsov will teach you how to create the kind of online lectures and video courses that will  be sure to rack up thousands of views.
