Zoom, Facetime, Teams, Skype…
Communicating these days means being able to present yourself over a digital medium. If you are like most people, you want the image and persona that you present in face-to-face interactions to be just as engaging and persuasive on screen.
When in an online meeting:
- Are you confident communicating in an online platform?
- How much are you a spectator instead of a fully-engaged participant?
- Is your presence and appearance showing you at your best?
that’s the average number of virtual meetings a business person, employee or jobseeker attends each month.
How do you hold engaging productive meetings while siloed at home amid the comforts, distractions and technical limitations of appearing as a small talking head on a flat computer screen?
In this interactive information-packed course, corporate trainer, professional comedian and performance coach John Knowles will combine presentation tips, storytelling insights and a suite of Virtual Do’s and Don’ts designed to elevate your online presence skills and boost your confidence when hosting or attending an online meeting.
For example, in a Zoom meeting, there are simple ways to become more dynamic and ensure you look professional. This course assists you to enhance the emotional and personal connections you make during on-screen interactions. Make your meetings interesting…perhaps even entertaining!
