Public Speaking for Virtual Platforms

Our world has transformed overnight as many of us suddenly find ourselves conducting meetings, hosting community gatherings, and making presentations online instead of face-to-face situations. Even as stay-at-home requirements are lifted, changes in public gathering recommendations and communicating with regional, national or global partners means that having a powerful online presence is the “new normal.”  The role of virtual presentations during and post Covid era will undoubtedly increase.

Drawing on theatrical science, this workshop offers practical tips for looking and sounding your best, presenting material effectively, and enhancing leadership presence and communication skills while working on virtual platforms. This is a 90 minute workshop with practical activities for skills building.
