    Hello again, Alvaro.
    Sounds like you are moving right along with new ideas. I have a question. Is the information in the webinars substantially different from that in the publications, your printed and online report, for example, or John Medina’s Brain Rules book (which I have purchased and am enjoying)?

    Thanks, Ken

  3. Kenneth Heinrich says:

    Hello yet again.

    Are the “Ads by Google” products or companies that SmartBrains has reviewed and approved?


  4. Lyn Harrington says:

    Can you describe the format e.g if I am on dial-up will I be able to watch, hear etc. the web broadcast or do I require High Speed ?

  5. Alvaro says:

    Hello Jan, we can’t sign you up. You need to find the webinar you want to attend, and register yourself. Thank you.

    1) the first 2 webinars are an introduction to those same materials. If you have the report, you know the subject in much more depth than we can cover in a webinar. If you have the book, same.

    The third webinar is different, it is more of a summary of many other topics we cover in this blog.
    2) Those ads are managed by Scientific American/ Google. We have nothing to do with them. So please don’t believe we have reviewed or endorsed any product simply because an ad appears for it.

    Lyn: webinars are most often used in corporate meetings and events, using high-speed. We don’t recommend people access them using dial-up…but you can certainly try!

    registering for the webinars, when registering for the June session, I have to input the same info…is there no short cut?


  7. Alvaro says:

    Hello Dom,

    Each webinar requires separate registration, sorry for the inconvenience.

  8. John says:

    Are these webinars going to be available in another format for download such as a podcast or mp3? They are scheduled for times when I’m unavailable.

  9. Diana Abrams says:

    Was very disappointed I signed up for Webinar #1: In “The State of the Brain Fitness Software Market, 2008 and received no link to access the webinar

  10. Alvaro says:

    John: not for the time being. Depending on the reception of this series, we may repeat it, or similar, in the future.

    Diana: all email confirmations and reminders are sent automatically via the webinar platform. Your anti-Spam system may have misclassified those reminders. Please see if you find your details there; otherwise email us at support at sharpbrains dot com.

  11. Michele says:

    Thank you very much for offering today’s webinar. My residents and I greatly enjoyed it. We did have a couple of questions afterwards.

    1. Are any of the companies you reviewed non-for-profit?

    2. Can you send me the slides Prior to you webinar? It would have been helpful to take notes on the actual pages. We are signed up for #2 and can’t wait.

    Thank you,
    Kendal at Oberlin

  12. Alvaro says:

    Michele, thank you for participating yesterday, and for your comment. I responded to your emails questions. Quickly, on these ones:

    1- None is.

    2- As explained via difficult, I understand your request but we can’t implement it…the main reason being we want people to actually attend the webinar.

    Talk to you next Tuesday!
