Webinars presented by the Helensburgh Community Council
The Helensburgh Community Council has instituted a series of Webinars for the community, providing information on areas of interest and including presentations by keynote speakers. The objective is to offer a platform for discussion and debate on topics that impact our daily lives and address issues of relevance to the community.
The webinars are usually presented on a Thursday, which includes a presentation and discussion session lasting about half an hour, using Zoom as a platform for the delivery of the Webinars
A full programme of Webinars has been developed for 2021, with the inaugural Webinar taking place on Thursday 14 January at 7:00 pm, to be delivered by Iain Baird, grandson of John Logie Baird on Curating Television in the 21st Century.
At present over 90 people have registered to attend the Webinars. To join the Webinars please contact Tariq S Durrani, Member, Helensburgh Community Council by e-mail on: firstname.lastname@example.org. He will then send out invitations to attend the Webinars on ZOOM.
The Helensburgh Community Council is open to suggestions, and if you would like to propose a topic or present a Webinar, please contact Tariq Durrani, as above.
