Event Management: Hosting Webinars


Webinars are a powerful tool for engaging with audiences, providing expert insight, and showcasing your business’s capabilities. However, planning and managing a webinar can be complex, time-consuming, and distracting for busy executives. That’s where an EA, especially those from Persona, comes in. Our EAs are part of the 0.1%—meticulously selected for their exceptional skills in communication, problem-solving, reliability, and more. They are proficient in handling every detail of webinar management, freeing up your time to focus on core business activities.

The Process

1. Your EA: Planning and Scheduling

Your EA will start by understanding your webinar’s purpose, your target audience, and your desired outcome. They’ll help you choose the right webinar platform, plan the format and content, set a date and time that would maximize attendance, and schedule rehearsals.

2. Your EA: Registration Setup

Your EA will set up a registration page with all the necessary information about the webinar. They’ll manage attendee registrations, send out confirmation emails, and keep track of attendees’ data, providing a seamless registration process for your participants.

3. Your EA: Marketing and Promotion

Your EA will develop a promotional plan for your webinar, including email campaigns, social media posts, and website announcements. They’ll manage the campaign, monitor responses, and adjust the strategy as necessary to ensure maximum visibility and attendance.

4. Your EA: Preparation and Rehearsal

Your EA will help you prepare for the webinar, assisting in the creation of the presentation, coordinating with any guest speakers, and ensuring that all necessary technology is in place and functioning correctly. They’ll also schedule and manage rehearsals to make sure you are comfortable with the setup and content.

5. Your EA: Execution and Follow-up

On the day of the webinar, your EA will handle all technical aspects, monitor attendee engagement, and manage the Q&A session. Post-webinar, they’ll handle follow-up emails, distribute any necessary resources, gather feedback from attendees, and provide you with a detailed report of the event’s performance.


Delegating the task of webinar management to an EA can drastically improve the efficiency of your operation. EAs can handle all aspects, from planning to execution, allowing you to focus on your presentation. They help in avoiding pitfalls, ensuring smooth operations, and enhancing the experience for your attendees. Their involvement can lead to better decision-making, improved outcomes, and a more successful webinar that resonates with your audience.

Top Tips for Webinar Planning with Your EA

Event management, especially when it comes to planning a webinar, involves many moving parts. It requires a keen eye for detail and perfect execution. That’s where our top-notch EAs can lend a hand, taking care of everything from planning to execution. Here are five tips that your EA will leverage to maximize the impact of your webinar.

1. Understand the Objective

An effective webinar hinges on clear objectives. Whether it’s to educate an audience, launch a product, or build brand awareness, the first step your EA will take is understanding the goal. This is paramount in guiding the planning process, shaping the content, and engaging the audience effectively.

2. Optimize Scheduling

Timing is crucial in ensuring maximum attendance for your webinar. Your EA will consider factors like your audience’s geographical locations, their work schedules, and typical online hours. They will then choose a time and day that maximizes convenience for most attendees, thereby boosting participation.

3. Craft Engaging Content

The content of your webinar should resonate with your audience, providing them with valuable insights and answers to their pressing questions. Your EA can help in the creation of compelling presentations, engage guest speakers, and script Q&A sessions, ensuring the content is aligned with the objectives and keeps the audience engaged.

4. Ensure Seamless Technology

Technical issues can quickly derail a webinar. Your EA will familiarize themselves with the chosen webinar platform, ensuring the technology works smoothly. They will manage rehearsals, troubleshoot potential issues, and ensure that all aspects, from audio to visuals, function flawlessly during the live event.

5. Manage Follow-ups

Post-webinar communication is key in maintaining engagement with attendees. Your EA will organize follow-up emails, distribute resources like presentation slides or related documents, collect feedback, and manage ongoing communication. This ensures that attendees stay connected even after the event, maximizing the long-term impact of the webinar.
