Phew I'm all talked out & my eyes are knackered... just finished my webinar for #OsteopathyAustralia. 👍👍👍 Thanks so much to everyone who joined in, I hope it was helpful! A MASSIVE thankyou to Marielle from #OsteoAust for helping me. I'm not gonna lie, delivering a webinar when you can't see the screen you're looking at is bloody hard but like any challenge you find a way! Marielle ENABLED me to present by reading the questions to me, my phone had a giant timer enabling me to know my timing & my tablet enabled me to follow along as best as possible with my slides (that I couldn't read!) With such great support from Marielle & technology everything ran seemlessly. Nothing like great team work to achieve the goal of a successful presentation. (I think! 😂) 👊 #Osteopathy #Osteopath #sport
