9 Tips for Successful Global Web Conferences

At the e-Learning Guild Learning Solution Conference this week, I facilitated a discussion on Challenges and Solutions for Global Web Conferences.  Here are the 9 tips I discussed with the group to ensure a successful global web conference:

1. Logistics: Select a date and time that is convenient for participants.  In addition to determining time zone conversions, you’ll also want to check international holidays and the work week of your target countries (hint: it’s not always Monday –Friday).

2. Language: Select the language you will use during the web conference.  If English, use international English that is free from cultural connotations.

3. Images: Select images that reflect the cultural and ethnic identity of the audience.  If your audience does not wear business suits and work in an office, then remove images of Western office workers from your materials.
