What is a webinar?
Webinars - short for web-based seminar - are presentations, lectures, workshops, or seminars transmitted over the web.
One key feature of a webinar is that it is interactive - unlike a webcast, in which data transmission goes one way, webinars allow presenters and audience members to give, receive, and discuss information.
When is the first BetterBeef Network webinar?
Webinars are currently being evaluated by the BBN team as another tool to bring you seminars with the latest industry information. We will update you on these as they develop. If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding Webinars please contact Cheriel Tidd.
The concept of producer to producer coaching and mentoring will be trailed as an approach of delivering programs that increase the sustainable profitability of Victorian beef businesses. Linked with the national More Beef from Pastures program, this concept will be further developed throughout 2011. If you questions regarding this topic please contact Dougal Purcell.
