Webinar pilot project – ridiculously cheap for students

A new webinar series, on the theme Crisis Communications and Corporate Culture, starts off February 16 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. —

Corporate cultural strategies for preventing and surviving crises

Speaker: Rhonda O’Gallagher, Executive Director, Corporate Communications, Pfizer Canada Inc.

While it’s priced at $69 for individual registrants from outside McGill, students can participate live for $10 and instructors for $49. To sign up, go to student link or staff/graduate link. Series discounts are also available for students and staff/instructors/graduates.

Some students were exposed to Rhonda’s clear, engaging manner in the Cases/Communication Planning course last term). For full details on this and future webinars, see the page called “webinar project winter 2011” at right.

 The project, now in its pilot stages, was put together by a small group including instructors Charles Pitts, Buzz Gibbs and Elizabeth Hirst. The idea is to make hour-long sessions on topics of interest available to students at a low price and to build up a bank of podcasts that will be available for instructors to use in courses. The series is also open to practising professionals at a single webinar or series price and to CPRS and IABC Montreal members at “partner” prices.
