Effective online presentations workshop
Virtual meetings and online presentations have become the reality for many. During a weird time when travel was not possible, we have learned to make the most of the online world. Or have we?
how it works
Online meetings tend to wear us out. We call it Zoom fatigue. Even though communicating via technology has its own downsides, it is not always the main culprit. Instead, we should often rename the condition as “bad meeting fatigue”! If you can relate to that title, you know there are many aspects that can make or break a meeting. One of them is how people present themselves and their ideas on screen.
Recognise the low quality video with the speaker giving you a frontline view of their nostrils or their hair? How about hearing every breath of someone with their microphone too close to their nose? In addition to purely technical hacks like positioning your camera at a decent angle, we will also consider how to prepare yourself for a presentation. Yes, body language is a language you can learn. No, a thin stripe suit is never a good idea on screen. And never ever is a long boring monologue justified with all sorts of engagement tools readily available!
