What if some 'wise-guy' challenges us and we don’t know the answer? Your worries are over. We will give you the confidence you need to take control.

Changes in the world of work and advancing technologies have made presenting in a virtual environment a must-have skill. Virtual presentations can often give you quick and easy access to a much broader audience than in-person presentations would, and when handled effectively virtual presentations are a great way for you to get your points across and influence others.

Perhaps you dislike presenting (or actively avoid it!), but if you develop the skillset to overcome technical hitches and engage your audience with confidence and professionalism, you will be able to communicate your ideas clearly, gain buy-in and support, and build your reputation and credibility.

Whether you are hosting an interview, presenting an idea in a virtual meeting, participating in an internal or external event, or speaking with clients over Teams, Zoom, Skype or WebEx, this course will help you to find your voice and make an impact – for the right reasons!

 

  • Does virtual presenting make you feel anxious or nervous?
  • Would you like to feel confident and composed when presenting virtually?
  • Do you want to feel that you’re engaging and involving your audience, without losing control or momentum?
  • Do you want to increase your professional visibility in a virtual world?
  • Project your voice to sound interested, enthusiastic, and professional
  • Overcome common linguistic habits that may prevent your audience from fully engaging with your message
  • Make the most of online tools to interact with your virtual audience
  • Pose questions that keep your audience engaged and stimulate their thinking
  • Use your virtual presence to add a positive impact to your presentation
  • Professionally address any technical issues that occur during your virtual presentation
  • Set the “rules of engagement” so that your virtual presentation stays both interactive and on track
