Speaking with confidence and authority in virtual meetings, conferences and webinars is the essential new professional skill of 2020. No matter how experienced you are at public speaking, there is still much to learn.
As life in the ‘new normal’ looks set to continue past the end of 2020, speaking in virtual meetings, lecturing from virtual podiums and building relationships through screens with audiences you may not see or hear is no longer a weird blip in your working life – it’s essential to your professional success. Hybrid events – where you need to engage both an in person as well as digital audience – will become the norm coming out of the pandemic.
But with limited scope for the subtle cues of body language that account for so much of great communication, even the most confident public speakers can flounder as they fail to project gravitas and confidence through a webcam.
As a broadcaster, MC and communications trainer whose clients include Google, Formula 1, Yale University and Visa, Edie Lush is an expert in making an impact in real life or on screen. In this highly practical and interactive masterclass, she’ll teach you the differences between speaking online and in person, and how to become adept in this new communications landscape regardless of your level of previous experience.
This masterclass takes place at 3:00pm GMT.
