Subject: A Gift to you from GW Micro: The GW Insider
Thank you to all of our loyal GW Micro customers.  We highly value all of
you and
wish you the best during the holiday season.
In the spirit of giving, GW Micro would like to offer you a free gift.  In
we are offering a new live webinar called The GW Insider.  The GW Insider
will focus
on people who have overcome severe challenges related to employment,
and other issues.  Almost all of us who use assistive technology have
setbacks due to living in a world of people who don't understand what it
means to
be disabled.  GW Micro wants to give back by bringing you a series of
individuals who have persevered in the face of adversity.  Our hope is that
you will
be able to hear these positive and inspiring stories, and use them to help
you in
your own life.
The first installment of The GW Insider will be on January 19, 2011 at 2
P.M. Eastern
time.  If you can't make it, don't worry, because the show will be recorded
so that
you can download or stream it from our site.  The GW Insider will feature
such as Mettco Sabic (www.mettcosabic.com), a medic in the Bosnian Army who
was shot
in the head by a sniper and instantly blinded while administering aid to a
soldier.  Mettco later came to America where he could be anything he wanted
to be,
and now runs a successful business, wrote his own book, and speaks to many
about his experience.
The first episode will feature Raquel O'Neill.  Raquel, a resident of Las
has become an inspiration to many in her own community.  Raquel has taken
her blindness,
and helped others along the way by being a transition counselor for high
school students
with disabilities, vocational rehabilitation counselor for the blind,
assistive technology
instructor, and now a disability specialist for the College of Southern
Come and learn how Raquel forged ahead, and became successful at everything
she wanted
to do in life.  The GW Insider is interactive, and there will be time for
from participants.  However, space is limited, and you will be given a spot
on a first come, first served basis.
To be a part of this first, very special episode of The GW Insider, you will
to go to www.gwmicro.com/meeting.  You will need high-speed Internet access
to enter
the meeting, as well as speakers.  If you want to ask questions, it is best
if you
have a microphone.  The Talking Communities software will be used, so if you
technical questions regarding the software, please call Talking Communities

the best
in 2011!
