Here is Sharyn Fitzpatrick’s fantastic presentation from our 2018 Presentation Ideas Conference. In a piece of impeccable timing, Sharyn put up a “Don’t Panic” slide talking about what to do about technical difficulties, just as our software crashed. So we were able to have a great conversation about how to handle technical issues during webinars.
Best Practices on How to Transition to Online Presenting
Oh, no – I have to present online! What do I do?
With the evolution of technology and limited time, many organizations are using online conferencing tools to deliver training, thought-leadership, and knowledge to their target audiences. The challenge many face is how to transition their speakers to be effective online presenters. In this webinar, you will learn how to create presentations that make an impact with your audience and what best practices you can employ to engage them and keep them interested throughout your presentation as you transition from being in-person to online. Discover the power of selecting the right tool to present, the impact of the right visual imagery, planning for the good and the bad, and how to keep the conversation moving with an audience you cannot see.
In this webinar, we will share a use case featuring the transition of a major employee assistance company from in-person training to a robust catalog of webinars in less than a year. We will also compare the pros and cons of several online conferencing platforms, so you can decide which one fits your needs. Attendees will also get several online presentation tools and templates that they can customize for their own presentation delivery.
