One of my participants said, “I go to Robbie's Virtual Happy Hour to recover from the Zoom fatigue I experience all week.”
That's how much fun we have. Music, good people, learning – all the ingredients of a great event.
“Music, chair dancing, networking, professional development, small group interactions, inspiration, celebrations… Robbie’s #NoMoreBadZoom Virtual Happy Hour is my Friday highlight.”
Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial-minded people, authors, speakers, consultants, coaches, podcast hosts, and online course creators.
That's what they do, but what you're probably wondering is “who are these people?” They are the most generous, warm, and encouraging community.
I’ve been hosting this event since March 13, 2020 and I look forward to it each week because this amazing community rejuvenates me.
How many usually attend?
- 25-30% are new each time so you definitely won't be the only new participant.
- 50% have attended 8 or more times.
- 20% have attended 20 or more times and plan their week around this event.
“I *thought* I knew Zoom, but I knew that I could learn more. Imagine my delight when Lynne Williams told me about Robbie's #NoMoreBadZoom Friday happy hour sessions. WOW. Every time I attend, I learn new Zoom tips. For example, on today's session I learned how to enable transcription on my Zoom sessions. Robbie is brilliant and you should connect with him immediately. Tell him Brenda sent you.”

“#NoMoreBadZoom is the place to be to find out how to engage and keep your audience awake during Zoom meetings. Love it. Robbie makes it seem easy and fun (no easy feat).”
Why have I been hosting this free weekly event since March 13, 2020?
It started because I was looking for a way to show up and add value as the world shifted dramatically and the in-person events I used to speak at stopped happening. I had no idea what it would turn into and I’m incredibly grateful so I keep showing up to share valuable content and build community.
I believe events are, and always have been, about content AND connection. Virtual events are NOT an exception.
In April 2022, the free weekly event became a free monthly event, but Content AND Connection Club members still get together every week.
