Be theatrical

Be theatrical

While it is always important to be authentic when presenting, a virtual presentation is akin to a stage performance.

Your "stage" is now a small virtual box. Therefore, your energy level, as well as your gestures, should be more pronounced than they normally would be if you were delivering the presentation in person. Virtual fatigue is real, and this will help to keep your audience alert and engaged.

Bring the fun

Think about what you can do that will be visually stimulating to your audience.

This could include things like wearing bright colors, having a fun background, or even having props. If you give presentations to the same audience on an ongoing basis, think about how you can change it up.

Be informal

The most sought-after speakers are not just subject matter experts now. They are those that can deliver personality.

Even if it is mainly one-sided, as a speaker you want to be as conversational as you can be. This is not the time to tone down your personality traits but rather to amplify them to maintain interest.

Say less

The attention span of people is short. Your lecture-style delivery should be short as well.

Try not to talk without interaction for longer than 15-20 minutes before having a scheduled question or activity. Not only will people tune you out but often you are competing with other distractions and obligations they have at home as well.

Don't leave some attendees behind

As there are more options going forward for hybrid presentations, attendees may have the option to attend in person or to attend virtually. If your attendees are split, make sure you are acknowledging and interacting with those that are not there live and in person as well.

For example, during Q & A make sure you take questions from both the live audience and the virtual audience so that neither segment feels left out.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
