For decades, professional speakers have been known for art of standing in front of a live audience and communicating their message. Many of us have spent years perfecting our crafts knowing that what will often separate us from our competitors is the ability to improve the overall experience of a live event. And then, in an instant, everything changed.
Meeting planners and event organizers are now looking for speakers who can present virtually. Speakers who can connect with their audiences and deliver their message remotely, with impact. Those speakers whose message resonate in a virtual environment will be the sought-out commodity for years to come. Yet to think that it’s as simple as taking your in-person skills and stepping in front of a camera is a misunderstanding that can lead poverty.
Trust me on this one, I had to transform quickly, just like you. In March, I (Tony) watched as the world finally responded to Covid-19 and all of my speaking engagements vanished into thin air. After having a few conversations with clients, I started getting booked, but now these were virtual presentations. The very thing I’ve hated and tried to avoid for years. On top of that we were in quarantine and much of the technology I wanted to order was sold out everywhere. I had to figure it out and figure it out fast. From client trainings to the Influence 2020 Mainstage, I had to get it right or suffer a defeat I wasn’t willing to endure. Since Covid-19, every client who’s hired me has requested additional presentation leading to over 30 virtual presentations since the spring.
In the workshop, I (Tony) will guide you through some strategies and techniques that helped convert my in-person speeches or trainings into affective virtual presentations. Together, we will cover:
- The differences between in-person and virtual presentations along with strategies to convert your in-person talk to a virtual presentation and make you look like a superstar speaker.
- Ways to enhance your message through slides and visuals without devolving into death by PowerPoint
- Simple and inexpensive technology that will make your virtual presentation stand out.
- Strategies for keeping the audience engaged regardless of the platform being used
- What I learned to request from each client to ensure that the presentations were a win for both of us.
