It’s that time of the year that many like to look back, take stock, share news from the past 12 months and look forward to what’s next.
We’re no exception.
We’ve done a lot of work that we’re extremely proud of in 2018. Today’s blog focuses on our NutriWebinars: launched less than a year ago and already a great success.
So what are they, why are we proud of them and how could you get involved (if you’re not already)?
What are NutriWebinars and how did they come about?
Well, as you’d expect, they’re webinars – or online seminars – to educate and train professionals about nutrition topics, aimed at the nutrition and food sectors.
They started because we’d experienced first-hand the many challenges in nutrition education and communications, including:
- The fast-paced environment;
- A requirement for Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
- Workers who are severely pressed for time, needing flexible opportunities to learn
- A desire from companies for convenient and cost-effective education and training solutions for their staff
In this digital age, webinars made simple sense to us.
They allow anyone to effectively engage with valuable information without having to be in the same physical place. Those who take part:
- Exchange opinions and experiences
- Get up-to-date content
- Interact with peers and colleagues online
- Receive online CPD certification
- Access slides and resources, delivered straight to their inbox
…all via a mobile platform, so you can access it wherever you are in the world.
‘Fabulous’ ‘Very informative’ ‘Highly recommend’
We tried them, refined them and they went down a storm: both with health professionals and, more recently, food sector professionals.
Topics have included calorie reduction, familial hypercholesterolaemia and sustainable diets.
Thousands of professionals who’ve joined us to learn and we’ve been overwhelmed with positive comments. ‘Highly recommend, with great CPD opportunities’, ‘fabulous’ and ‘very informative’ are just a few of the responses.
Our expert speakers love it too. As Professor Glenn Gibson summed his experience up, “I really enjoyed the NutriWebinar. The technology worked perfectly and this channel is such a fantastic way of communicating and avoiding all the crazy things we have to do these days to go and give talks, like travel for days for a one hour talk. Such a great team that held my hand to make it all run smoothly.”
We also worked with companies to deliver education and training to their staff using our full service platform. Our team includes experts in technology, healthcare, nutrition and digital marketing, so clients could choose their topic and leave us to do the work: facilitating registrations, devising and delivering content and all the administration.
With the technology easy to use and detailed reporting available, the webinars were hugely beneficial for organisations who value continuous analysis and improvement.
Where do we go from here?
It’s the end of the year and we’re celebrating our success, but of course we’re not resting on our laurels.
What’s next? Well, that in part comes down to you. We’ve got plenty of NutriWebinars planned but we’re also keen to hear from you about what topics you’d like us to cover.
Have a fantastic festive break and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!
