Hi @Duncan - so, what help do you need to set up a webinar? Do you have materials to present? And an idea of who you would like to attend? And what messages you would like to convey...? What would you like the audience to discuss or understand? If you can explain a but more about what you are thinking I am sure somoeone here in the Loomio group should be able to help...
