How to turn your Webinars into Networking Events?

Webinars have become more popular than ever since the Covid-19 Pandemic broke out. It has become a means to replace the “Old-School” Seminars and Events we used to attend. But one thing a webinar cannot replace is the Coffee Break, the Cocktail or the Dinner where you can meet new people and talk about the content of the Seminar or the Speaker.


Webinars in general are just not engaging and not interactive. It is one Person listening and watching another Person on the screen.
