Excellent practical advice!May 4

Maria's webinar was exceedingly useful and practical. Viewing the participants' own profiles, she illustrated what was good and appropriate and what could be improved. She was easy to follow, spoke clearly and gave direct information on upgrading our profiles. The squeaks and feedback in the sound could be improved, if possible. Having directly implemented Maria's points of improvement on my profile, I am quite pleased with the results. Thank you!

Will work on those "squeaks and feedback" for next sessionMay 4

Thank you, Ramey! I'm very glad to hear that you found the webinar useful, and I see that you are already implementing some of the tips I mentioned in your profile.

I wasn't aware of any strange "squeaks and feedback" in the sound on my end during the session, so I will try to work those out for the next webinar - thanks for letting me know!

Best regards,

Very usefulMay 5

This webinar was very interesting. Having my own profile reviewed, along with 2 other profiles, was very useful for me. I now "just" have to apply Maria's advices. Let's go.icon_smile.gif

There were indeed some issues with the sound, but I quickly plugged a headset and it was fine as is.

Thank you Maria for your very good advices.

Great initiativeMay 11

I was most interesting to follow the review of three real profiles, and a very special thank you to Maria for taking the time to give me such helpful advice on my own profile.
