After weeks of deliberation, our editorial team has finally elected the winner of the TeleSemana.com Awards 2014 Best Webinar Speaker. And the award goes to: Javier Pereira, Wireless Solutions Manager for Latin America at Alcatel-Lucent, for its participation in the Webinar “LTE and LTE-A: the new technological arsenal for mobile operators,” held on March 25, 2014.
With 398 registered members and 164 attending live and 128 on-demand, this was one of the webinars with greater participation in 2014. Although participation in the seminar was not a decisive factor to reward Javier with this year’s award, it did play a role among some of the other factors the jury took into account.
“The five nominees proved to be excellent presenters of information via Internet, what we see as a great achievement considering that they had to communicate without nonverbal body language. Getting the attention of the audience for 45 minutes is not easy, and the five proved to have the skills to do so,” says Rafael Junquera, co-founder and editorial director at TeleSemana.com.
“Last year we witnessed numerous seminars on various topics, following the objective of TeleSemana.com to communicate relevant information to professionals in the telecommunications sector in Latin America. Choosing the winner was a very difficult task, which involved analyzing the contents, feedback forms, as well as several other criteria. We believe that this award will help improve the content of our webinars,” says Leticia Pautasio, Editor at TeleSemana.com, and one of the judges for last year’s edition
During 2014, TeleSemana hosted 24 seminars with 29 different presenters. They al performed an important role to showcase and promote certain technologies among telecom operators in Latin America. In addition, 2,931 Latin American professionals accessed those contents during 2014, and thanks to their feedback we were able to produce this award.
