Presented by Barbara Hodel & Margaret Gray
Pet Professional Guild Australia offers its members at least one webinar per month. Anyone can present these webinars, provided the content is in line with our guiding principles of No Pain, No Force, No Fear. PPG Australia aims to increase the number of presenters & the range of topics. This webinar will be free to anyone interested in either hosting a webinar or being the facilitator of someone else's webinar.
It will be a comprehensive coverage of every stage in the development and presentation of webinars, from physical technology requirements, through writing the presentation, to organisation of the live webinar and how the individual components come together.
Participants will be able either to host or to facilitate a webinar, through gaining knowledge of the following processes and how they fit together:
- hardware and software requirements;
- making application to host a webinar;
- length of time between their application and the event;
- how their material fits into the overall event;
- how the webinar software works;
- help provided by a PPG Australia committee member;
- how questions from attendees are handled;
- how & when they get paid.

She is based in the Southern Highlands of NSW where she runs Tails Up Dog Training. Her two Poodles, Saxon & Kuzu, might not run Tails Up but they do run the household. Except when they are learning new things or performing tricks, or running around their own agility for fun setup - all of which they love, they are thought to be amazingly naughty. (She doesn't agree with this assessment.) Margaret has been involved with dog all of her life but became interested in training when she retired from teaching high school students. As well as her dog training qualifications, Margaret has a B.A & a Dip. Ed. both from the University of New England.
