Presentation Skills for the Virtual Environment
Dislike giving presentations over the web? Worried that participants are disconnected and disconnecting? This program helps you overcome the challenges to meaningful communication inherent in this new technology.
This program imparts skills and techniques required in the planning, preparation, and delivery of effective presentations in a virtual environment. It provides opportunities for interaction and practice using your organization’s web presentation software. Learn to use polling to establish motivation, actively involve your participants to determine if they are “getting it”. Make decisions about chat and telephone usage that encourage questions and yet keep the situation manageable. Design visuals that catch and keep attention. Practice effective use of your voice to compensate for lack of body language.
NOTE: Participation in this program requires the use of VOIP communications. A computer headset is highly recommended for best audio quality. We also recommend a hardwired internet connection rather than wifi.
