The hot topic right now is online presentations and how to do them so you feel good and your audience pays attention. The areas of interest range from feeling comfortable in front of the camera to how to use the tech and engage the audience throughout your meeting. Fear not! I have answers for you and I even created an entire course on the subject that starts this Monday, September 21st. If you want more information than what I cover on today’s episode, take a look at the course and get yourself a seat before registration closes on Sunday.
Here are the questions I answer on today’s show:
— How do I set up my computer and lighting to get the best look?
— How can you create engagement when people don’t have their camera on and you can’t see them?
— How can I build an instant connection with a virtual audience? I want to have an engaging opening and usually I just feel like everyone is bored as soon as I start.
— I hate being on camera! How do I get over this?
— How do I field questions while trying to present? What if I don’t know the answer to a question?
— How do I deliver a script when it’s not possible to memorize it?
Introducing my new course, Online Presenting Made Easy!
This course is designed to take you from anxious and unsure to actually enjoying presenting (yes it is possible!).
— create content that is meaningful, informative, and not salesy
— keep the audience engaged from start to finish so you’re not left wondering if anyone heard anything you said
— use the technology so it enhances your presentation instead of being a source of frustration
— present yourself with authenticity instead of sounding robotic and boring
You’ll also get a chance to try out what you are learning in small group breakouts so you get immediate feedback and practice.
If you can’t make it live, all the classes will be recorded and available to watch anytime. I’ll be sending the recording link out every week after class for anyone who missed it.
