Webinars and seminars are a valuable resource
Ann participates regularly in webinars or attends seminars to both share her experience and knowledge with other participants, to gain insight into additional / alternative perspectives and to keep up with recent developments. Sharing with others on the internet is a valuable resource as a wider audience can be brought together than traditional seminars. The latter remain useful, especially as they enable a deeper and less formal interaction with others to take place.
