The major disruptions in supplychains from countries far away these past months , due to the COVID-19 pandemic, have had a profound effect on the day to day business for retailers and manufacturers.

Maybe, in the future, nearshoring is an better option than off shoring? And if nearshoring is an better option, what does Romania has to offer? And is nearshoring only suitable for IT services?

What is a webinar?

If you have never participated in a webinar you might wonder what it is exactly. A webinar is a seminar that is hosted online. So instead of coming together in a room to listen to a presentation, you follow the presentation online behind your computer.  The presentation is live and you can see both the speaker and his presentation on your screen.

If you have a camera on your device, the speaker and the other participants will be able to see you as well and you will be able to see the other participants.

A webinar is usually interactive, where the participants are invited to ask questions or discuss a certain topic with the speaker. To prevent the speaker from being interrupted during his presentation question can be asked via the chat.

To manage the flow of questions there is a moderator present during the seminar. He or she will collect the questions that come in via the chat and will pass them on to the speaker. The moderator will invite you then to pose your question to the speaker.

You can use any device to attend the webinar, as long as it is connected to the internet and has screen, a microphone and a camera. So you can use your desktop computer, your laptop, your ipad or even your phone.

To enter’ the webinar you click on the link you have received by email from the organiser of the webinar and you will be admitted automatically.

If you have never before attended a seminar, we advise you to enter early. It could be that you have to download the programme the webinar is using.  This is usually pretty straight forward and self explanatory, the device you are using will guide you through the steps, but it might take some time. So in order not to be late we advise you set up 15 minutes before the webinar starts.

Wat is een webinar?

Als u nog nooit heeft deelgenomen aan een webinar vraagt u zich misschien af wat het is en hoe het precies werkt. Kort gezegd is een webinar een online presentatie. Het woord ‘webinar’ is een samentrekking van de woorden ‘web’ en ‘seminar’. Het verschil tussen een seminar en webinar is dat bij een seminar een fysiek publiek is, terwijl bij een webinar alles online gaat. De deelnemers volgen de presentatie van achter hun computer. De presentatie is live en u kunt zowel de spreker zijn of haar presentatie volgen via uw scherm.

Als u een camera heeft op het toestel dat u gebruikt, kunnen zowel de spreker als de andere deelnemers u ook zien tijdens het webinar.

De meeste webinars zijn interactief, waarbij de deelnemers vragen kunnen stellen aan de spreker of in discussie kunnen gaan over een bepaald onderwerp met de spreker. Om te voorkomen dat de spreker tijdens zijn presentatie te vaak wordt gestoord, worden de vragen gesteld via de chat.

Om het webinar in goede banen te leiden is er, naast de spreker, ook een moderator aanwezig. Hij of zij verzamelt de vragen die binnen komen via de chat en geeft deze door aan de spreker. Als er een geschikt moment is tijdens de presentatie, zal de moderator u het woord geven om uw vraag te stellen aan de spreker.

U kunt deelnemen aan het webinar uw computer, een laptop, een ipad of zelfs uw telefoon, zolang u er maar voor zorgt dat uw apparaat verbonden is met het internet en beschikt over een scherm, een microfoon en een camera.

Om het webinar ‘binnen’ te komen, klikt u op de link die u heeft ontvangen van de organisatie in een email, u wordt dan automatisch naar het webinar toe geleid.

Als u niet eerder heeft deelgenomen aan een webinar dan adviseren wij u om een kwartier voor aanvang van het webinar even te proberen of de link op uw computer goed werkt.

Het kan zijn dat u een programma moet downloaden waar het webinar gebruik van maakt. Dit gaat normaal gesproken erg gemakkelijk, u krijgt meestal vanzelf de stappen in beeld die u moet volgen, maar dit kan wel even duren. Vandaar dat wij u aanraden om dit even van te voren te controleren.
