Register with your topic as a guest in webinar-series
We have run many intensive interactive webinars for our customers and interested people. Have you already seen one of the previous webinars? Do you like our interactive format? Would you like to introduce yourself and your offer to our audience? Then contact us to be our personal guest and let us know your preferred topic.
We believe that people who work in teams and with software achieve great success and want to share their experiences with others. If your topic has something to do with collaboration, modern company structure, Agile (Scrum, Kanban), software-usage or software-development, we'd most probably like to have you in our webinar-series.
If your topic fits with our audience, we ask you to prepare content for 10 to 20 minutes. Your webinar can be done as slides with audio, a software demonstration with screen-sharing, or a live video presentation. To participate you can either visit us in Wiesbaden or join us virtually.

Your topic in a webinar
Frequently Asked Questions
No, this is not mandatory. Of course, it's more natural and comfortable when we are in the same room and our audience can see us interacting. But if this is not feasible, or you don't want to travel so far, a remote-presentation is possible.
We ask our guests to arrive at our office approximately 1 hour before the webinar, so that we can run through our preparation one last time with you and check that the technical side of things is working.
You need a modern computer with sound, a microphone and video-camera and stable internet connection (preferably a cable connection). When it comes to hardware, every reasonably modern notebook is able to meet these requirements. But please do us, the viewers, and yourself the favor and connect your device to broadband internet connection, so that the connection is stable. Wireless and mobile networks are usually fast enough, but in reality are often bound to cut out and to have disruptions, which is really annoying and looks unprofessional.
In principle, you should connect to our webinar platform to your computer and activate the sound, a microphone, and camera. If you want to demonstrate something on your computer, you have to install an additional component on your computer in order to share your screen. Please submit your files, slides, and videos beforehand, so that we can store them on the webinar-platform.
You don't really have to think deeply about this. Just make an appointment with Martin Seibert via http://seibert.biz/mseibert15 and he will test your system to make sure you meet the technical requirements and show you how you can share presentations and lead discussions.
Webinars are generally moderated and organized by Martin Seibert and Matthias Rauer. They will assist you and provide discussion within the webinar. Additionally, our participants can ask questions and make comments via a public chat channel. These comments could be moderated, but we generally won't do that. If someone becomes disruptive, we can ban them. However, participants are mostly a driving force and bring new and great aspects to discussions. And then, of course, there is you. You, Matthias and Martin have the possibility to speak at any given time and to control what viewers can see and hear. Participants only get to speak for limited times, if at all, and can typically not present anything themselves.
We want our webinars to be exciting and informative for the participants. Usefulness our primary goal. That's why it is important to us, that you only present as much as is really necessary. We then have more valuable time to interact and discuss with the participants. Of course, a discussion with the participants doesn't happen all by itself. Therefore, it is useful if you present your topic and propose to the participants, what they can do with the given information. You can ask questions. We can do live polls. We can show videos. You can share your or our screen and display documents or websites. Of course, they can also hear and see us in the video. We can use a whiteboard.
Usually, we prepare a handout that we give to all participants in the webinar. In this handout are all relevant links, a description of the webinar, slides and presented documents.
You should answer the questions in the "What makes a good webinar" section thoroughly. Make sure the answers to the following questions are clear:
- What can the participants do with the information right now?
- What do the participants gain from this webinar?
- What is the next step?
- What can the participants do themselves?
- When do you recommend the participants seek help?
- What competencies should the participants have, to implement your solution?
- Plus any other question participants might ask you.
We often provide a cheat-sheet with the answers to these questions, to make sure we address all topics that are important for the webinar. This cheat-sheet helps the participants know what to expect in the webinar. Plus, it's handy to have in case the webinar doesn't go as planned. Please be prepared for this, it will happen!
We don't rule it out completely, but only provide remuneration if this was explicitly arranged beforehand. What is important to us, is a fair situation. We do a lot to make joint webinars successful and to ensure your topic gets a lot of attention. We send individual invitations by email to our customers and interested parties. We blog. We tweet. We mention the webinar in our newsletter. The number of contacts we reach is generally five figures. A large number of participants take part in our webinars.The video-recording is equally promoted and usually gets a lot of attention. Many of our guests use the webinar additionally, to invite and make their own network aware of it.
If you believe so, you should be remunerated for your participation, please contact Martin Seibert.
Please help us to spread the word about our webinar-invites and invite your own contacts. This can be done by mail, Twitter, Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn, and of course personally or by telephone. We look forward to all new participants we make contact with through you!
