Back “in the day” of cassette tapes, there was a famous series of commercials with the tag line of “Is it live OR is it Memorex™”? [The point of the commercial was to laud the high quality of Memorex™ recordings that were "barely" indistinguishable from the live event.]
Decades later, technology allows us to accomplish all sorts of “as good as being there LIVE” opportunities–especially for learning and growing. Human-made boundaries of time and space grow increasingly blurred–and I’m lovin’ every minute of the adventure.
Fast forward to Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 12 noon (Eastern time). At that time [thanks to the graciousness of my colleague Elizabeth Scala over at Living Sublime Wellness] I am offering a presentation that’s both ”live” AND “Memorex™-ed” – and y’all are invited to join along with us.
[NOTE: My presentation, entitled, Focused Self-Care: Resilience for Life at the Edge is one of TWELVE different (and awesome!) presentations included in Elizabeth's Rejuvenation Collaboration that starts on Tuesday, June 5 and runs through Thursday, June 14. You can register to listen "live" to all the presentations--for free, plus there is an upgrade option if you want access to the recordings and other goodies.]
Rewind to a couple of months ago => I was so excited to receive Elizabeth’s invitation. Yet, when I looked at the dates for the series, I realized that they coincided precisely with my upcoming trip to Argentina where I’ll be doing a presentation at the 24th International Focusing Conference.
I know technology can work wonders and allow communications from around the world–but I wasn’t willing to risk a technical glitch if there was a feasible alternative. And, I didn’t want to simply “pre-record” a dry, didactic presentation, if there was some way to include an interactive component.
Here’s how we solved the dilemma:
- Last week, we pre-recorded the presentation–with Elizabeth as a “live” participant. It’s in a webinar format – complete with web-camshots of each of us, along with powerpoint slides and handouts.
- On Thursday, June 14 (at 12 noon!) – while registrants are watching the pre-recorded webinar–I will be sitting at the Detroit airport (having just arrived back in the US that morning), interacting LIVE on the special Rejuvenation Collaboration Facebook page.
- Plus, after June 14, (for those who have purchased the Rejuvenation Collaboration Series Upgrade Package) there will be continued opportunities for discussion and feedback about participants’ “live” experiences of the “Memorex™-ed” version of the presentation.
Is that fun, or what? I’m so looking forward to this!
I hope to “see” you there, too! Whenever!
Oh, by the way – why not REGISTER NOW!
