Which of These Topics Would You Attend a Webinar On?

If you recall I had an idea to do a webinar in aid of one of my favorite charities. To gauge interest I did a survey asking what you would want the survey to be about. Here are all the results.

Any interest?

Any interest?

First up I asked if it was worth organizing. It seems most people are interested, depending on the topic.

With that in mind there were tons of topics suggested, below I have listed the most popular. Please vote for the topic you would most like to attend. If you are reading this in your feed reader or email you will need to click through to vote.

Which of These Topics Would You Attend a Webinar On?

[poll closed – thanks]

I have to thank Rob Anderson from Accuconference who has been a great help in allowing me to use their service for this, and Cindy King and Denise Wakeman who have offered tips on how to organize it.

About the Charity

What is all this about? Well, I am trying to raise £10,000 for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

While I have been resisting saying too much about why I chose this particular charity, I have been told it is unfair of me to ask for money without giving at least a little background, so here it is.

You might or might not have noticed I went quiet for a while here and on Twitter. That is because my daughter went in to hospital for heart surgery. She had been on a waiting list since early last year and when the call came we had to drop everything. While we were there we experienced first hand what this charity does for patients and families.

My daughters operation looks to have been a great success, and for that we are grateful. That said there are many more kids going through this right now or will be coming through in the future.

While the doctors and nurses are brilliant and fully funded (it doesn’t matter if you have private health, it is the same team, same facilities), anything beyond the absolute basics comes from donations. As you can imagine it is a traumatic time for all concerned so anything that can be done to ease things is well worth supporting, and many families need ongoing support.

So there you have it, a bit of background. Of course I am going to try to help them in other ways, but this webinar idea seems to be a way to help the charity by getting some international donations and also pass on some good, valuable blogging and social media material at the same time 🙂

  1. It’s good to see this is still going ahead. One thing that hasn’t been covered and perhaps it’s a bit too early to get an answer but what time are you shooting for? (GMT)

  3. Going to have to work out the best day and time where most people can make it. The survey covered time zones, but there will be a recording for those who can’t make it live.

  5. Chris,

    I noticed is that you put a relative link for “View Results.” In RSS, it becomes /feed/?dem_action=….

    which displays your feedburner feed. And when I click again the “View Results” link in feedburner, it goes to feeds2.feedburner.com/feed/?dem_action=view&dem_poll_id=12

    and the displayed page is “True Tiger Recordings.”

    Just a quick heads-up.

  7. Chris, I just wanted to let you know that it is great that you are raising money for a great cause. My daughter has a heart disease and thankfully we have not had to have surgery. He did go for a transplant eval. but she has slowly improved over the last two years. It is great to hear your daughter’s operation was a success.

  13. Your heart is in the right place on this. Thanks for sharing what must have been a very stressful few months for your family. If there is anything I can do (albeit at a great distance), please ask.

  15. I wanted to vote, and I know it’s not much help, but I’d go to everyone of them.

    I think I’m most especially interested in the live blog critiques. The other information can be found online. The critiques aren’t so easy to come by.

  17. Great news about your daughter’s surgery and thanks for sharing why you chose this charity.

    I know you asked above “which would you most like to attend” but there are several I would attend. For now I’ll vote for the top one, but I would attend several of the others if they win out in the vote.

    This is really a unique way to raise money for charity. I wish you the best!

  19. Chris, thank you for sharing your story and I’m so thrilled your daughter’s surgery is a success. One more thing I didn’t mention is that your webinar can be turned into a product and ongoing sales can continue to benefit your important charity. Let me know how I can contribute or help with your event.

  21. Glad to hear your daughter is recovering. Hope you are keeping a journal for her to read when she is older. She will want to understand what you went through as well as her. I am working to get my website up and running the way I want; so that it will give real ideas for people.

    Take care of all of you.

  23. Sharon and I have been great supporters of our own family’s important organization as well. Sharon’s sister is developmentally disabled. We’d be happy to participate in any way, on any topic Chris … OK with us. Just let us know the details of what you need. We’ll reach out to our network to help as we can.

    We’re very happy to hear about the successful outcome of your daughter’s surgery. Have been through an aortic valve replacement myself. Gotta be even less fun for a young ‘un.

    I don’t envy your getting back to working after an absence. The mountain is ever higher. Our discussion idea project will always be there .. no rush there. The beat goes on.

  25. I’d like to go to all of them too. I found it interesting that growing traffic was rating higher than growing community. That’s a little telling of peoples motives to me. Community seems better than traffic. A community of people are intentionally returning because they want to be a part of what is happneing. Traffic is just passing by on the highway.

    You need traffic to build the community obviously but that is why I would see growing your community as the better webinar because it would have to include growing traffic. I think we’d not only learn more but benifit more.

    Thanks Chris. And I really appreciate your not wanting to go into much detail about your why. You’re a good man.

  27. It’s hard to choose, I’ve already learned so much from you on all of those topics. I’m so glad for you that your daughter is doing well!

    I’ve been in the hospital with children, I can really related.

    Best of luck with the fundraiser, I’ll help spread the word.
