Virtual storytelling – mastering online delivery for presentations, workshops and roundtables
The world might be in turmoil, but your message still needs to get out there.
The COVID-19 crisis and resultant shutdown of mass gatherings doesn’t mean that all business must grind to a halt. The need for organisations to communicate their message to the market remains. And while activities such as conferences, workshops and roundtables might be suspended for now, we live in an era where digital tools give us the ability to replicate the experience of a live event virtually.
But presenting in virtual formats is not the same as doing so from a stage, lectern or meeting room. It requires a rethink of content, flow and format, to ensure the presenter can build and maintain engagement with their audience. At the same time, virtual presentations provide opportunities for different forms of interaction, and when executed correctly, can live on as part of a growing repository of digital content.
With this in mind, I have taken everything I’ve learned about physical and virtual presenting and created this new course, designed to teach the basics of presenting through online media. Whether you are delivering a keynote presentation, facilitating a roundtable or hosting a workshop, this course will help you master your content and flow, and enable you to drive engagement with your audience.
