Description

Are you planning to participate in a virtual meeting, webcast, virtual job interview, or record a video of an elevator or a sales pitch?

Mobile technology allows us to video everywhere using such video platforms as Instagram, Vine, YouTube, Skype, Webex, and GoToMeeting, to name just a few of the many options available.   Video and virtual presentations and conferencing are becoming more and more the norm.  From websites, employment interviews, training and product videos, corporate and marketing videos, media interviews - the list goes on – more businesses are taking advantage of this medium to help them compete, manage, and grow business. Organizations use it as a way to connect with customers, vendors, partners, as well as a tool for hiring and training. 

With widespread applications of video, we can reach vast numbers of people practically anywhere across the globe.  Which is even more reason why it’s necessary to present yourself well, in the most compelling and engaging way.  However, do you know how to do this?  Do you know how to well present in front of the camera?  Are you ready for a close-up?  Do the same principals when speaking face-to-face in front of a live audience apply to a virtual presentation?

You may be a skilled and gifted speaker at speaking in pubic.  However, presenting to virtual audiences has its own set of unique challenges.  You may not be able to see the entire or any of the audience or hear them well.  If you are recording a video, you won’t be able to see people’s reactions when they view it.  You also won’t be able to make eye contact with your audience, making it difficult to assess their reactions.

A simple process?  Not exactly.  Have you ever seen any poorly done recorded and live video sessions that were hard to hear and see leaving you unimpressed and frustrated?  Probably! However, when done well, our online and virtual presence should and can appear natural and comfortable.

This course will provide you practical techniques for making your video stand out that will place you in the spotlight.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who would like to know how to well present in front of a camera for a live or recorded presentation.
