What do the best tech leaders do differently?

There have been several failures in technology over the years. A TIME magazine article outlining failures mentions Netscape, Napster, and Blackberry as some of the technology companies that couldn’t pivot to better serve their target market. As a result, many lost millions for investors and were forced into bankruptcy or shut down.

Admittedly, the thought of starting a webinar series seems overwhelming. Mostly because there’s always the fear that no one will show up.

Well I’m going to tell you a little secret about webinars: even if no one shows up, you still have a piece of content you can market and share to build up your expertise.

Of course, a full audience would be ideal, but if you take the pressure off yourself by thinking about how you can repurpose webinars, then the prospect seems a lot less daunting. To start a webinar series that you can both repurpose and a…

  • Balance costs with 3rd party content: Often organizing a curated post takes less employee time, cutting content creation costs.
  • It’s about sharing: It’s not…
