How to convey confidence when presenting online?

Confidence when speaking online…are you part of the problem, part of the solution, or…part of our community that gathers around problems to find solutions? Join us on Wednesday 9th December for a creative session with our expert in online presentations! We will learn from each other, share best practices and end up with one problem less and a few friends more. Are you in? 🙂

Listen to an introduction from guest expert speaker Charlotte Wiseman, and please post your comments below for any questions you have for her before the session.

    Any recommendations of productive hacks to presentation assembly speed?

    What are the big no-no’s that results in immediate disengage – can these be inverted or transmuted into something more valuable?

    When facing a stricter audience eg board, select committee etc how does one amplify impact with stakeholders and their competitions agendas?

  6. Eranga Gunawardena

    I struggle to connect with people online as I tend to look at them on the screen and not the green dot (camera). When I look at the camera then I cannot see the virtual audience to see their reactions and connect well with them. What is the secret to be able to do both? Thanks.

  7. How do you guage engagement if the call is to a large number of people (over 50)?
