Re: I'm I just a small thinker?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
So by now, the webinar is history.

I'd like to hear from those who "attended", and I'd especially like to get some feed back from small offices, where the cost could not be amortized to 5, 10 15 or 20 observers.  As a sole practitioner, I too believed the cost $250 for this 45 minute webinar is too high, regardless of where the costs go. (that is unless some major information, clarifications, additional handouts were provided, and the webinar turned out to cover a lot wider field of subjects)

I'd like to know if it was more informative than the example in the design manual?

I totally agree with you, Bill.  It’s a one hour webinar that is more of a clarification of a design example.
In my opinion, little things like this would be great to offer for free to their membership.  Minimum membership fee is $200.  What do you get for that money?  Wouldn’t the added benefit of free continuing education via webinars just like this be a nice addition?

Or does anyone else think it is ludicrous to charge $250 for a webinar connection?
I’m referring to Don’t get me wrong; I think Doug Thompson is a fine speaker and the topic should be interesting.
But $250 and not even a continental breakfast?
Is it just me?
