I had given feedback about two previous USAID webinars here:
On sanitation in general:

and here:
On Nutrition and WASH:

I am finding these USAID webinars very professionally run and moderated. The sound quality is usually excellent (but there is no video). As a downside, they don't allow any audio from the audience, and the possibility to interact is quite limited - only via the chat field. However, some new connections with other participants can be made via the chat. Usually they have around 100 people attend each webinar. The time for questions of the audience is quite limited and the presentations rather long, so it feels a bit more like listening to a radio podcast or lecture in my opinion. I like that they strictly keep the time, so it all fits into one hour exactly.

Interestingly, they have a lot of female presenters and moderators in these webinars (Jesse Shapiro being an exception), I don't know if this is a coincidence or not.
