Interested in me doing an interactive Remote Meeting (IRM) over the Internet for your club?

Isn’t technology wonderful! It is now feasible for a woodturning chapter to have an interactive remote demonstration (IRD) over the internet with me operating my own lathe in my shop and presenting to your chapter and members anywhere in the world.

I would be interested in working with your club to make this happen. I have done remote live demos for clubs across the USA and Canada since 2018. The biggest constraint for the club is a broadband internet connection. With a broadband connection and a laptop or tablet they can connect to their large screen TV or projector. The complexity is on the demonstrator’s side. The club also needs a champion willing to work with me to run a test well in advance to make sure we are both fully operational. If you have some interest, let’s talk!

Late breaking news! With the COVID-19 pandemic and clubs forced to cancel meetings, we all have had to adapt. I am able to host an Interactive Remote Meeting (IRM) for your club. Members can participate from home using a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Can you imagine a show and tell where members at home can actually show their latest work from home? Or watch a demo in the comfort of their home and ask questions?

Please contact me if you are interested in an IRM for your club.

Demonstration Topics

Advantages to a club:

  • The opportunity to see a demonstrator they could not get to their club meeting.
  • Lower costs because there are no travel costs.
  • No setup or tear down of equipment
  • Often, better video than a club gets with their own camera operator and equipment because the demonstrator typically has better lighting and video setup than a club might have. I use three or four different cameras for my remote demonstrations.
  • Members can participate from home.

Advantages for the Demonstrator

  • Using their own equipment with more options to show tools and have backup if there is some type of equipment failure
  • No travel
  • No packing and unpacking

I want to acknowledge all of the leadership and coaching provided by Alan Zenreich on this new approach to demonstrating.
