Webinar feedback results

Since SAIF Business Centre began the webinar series in July 2016, more than 200 people have booked places, with an average of 26 per session.

The topics have ranged from dealing with difficult families to pensions, including several on different aspects of marketing a funeral business.

There has been a great response to the online feedback, with 85% of people reporting they found the webinars “excellent” or “good”, and 98% would recommend the sessions to a colleague in the profession. A total of 82% found the webinars were “relevant and applicable to their everyday work’’.

Here are some comments from attendees:

• “A really great way to learn and chat to other funeral directors – thank you and well done”
• “I found the webinar very useful and informative”
• “Covered a lot of information in a short space of time”
• “Being able to participate while still in the office was a big bonus”
• “Helpful in assessing my own business”
• “It’s a great way to interact without being distracted”
• “It’s a great way to learn and discuss”

As a reminder, a webinar is a seminar which takes place over the internet, so you can enjoy all the benefits of a training session from any computer at home or at work. The sessions last for one hour and are free for members.

A full list of upcoming webinars will appear on the SAIF website. Previous webinar recordings are available to download in the members’ area.

SAIF will email invitations to all members ahead of each webinar with a link to register and join the session. There are limited places so please make sure you register as soon as you can. Once registered, members will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the webinar. Members will need a laptop, tablet or smartphone with reliable internet access as well as a set of speakers or headphones to take part.

During the webinar, members will be able to see the presentation and hear the presenter speaking. They can also ask questions throughout the session with the live chat box function.

The webinar series will resume in September with Sean Martin of C Waterhouse & Sons.
