Presenting with impact in a virtual environment
We’re becoming more and more used to virtual communication
Due to sanitary constraints and physical distancing we’re becoming more and more used to virtual communication. This means our way of communicating is no longer the same. Tools such as Skype, MS Teams and Zoom are now integrated in our daily lives.
Are you facing the challenge of presenting impactfully in English in this new virtual environment? You may be finding it difficult to keep your audience’s attention. Or worried you’re not conveying your message clearly and precisely enough.
Motivate your teams and convince your clients
Since 2012, as a British coach of public speaking, I’ve been helping leaders, executives and team managers to structure the communication of their vision and clarify their message. I then share with them the tools to express themselves with credibility, impact and assertiveness in a foreign language. Now I’m helping them feel comfortable in the new world of video conference.
As remote working and communicating via video conference and calls becomes the norm, it’s even more challenging to share your message with impact, especially when English isn’t your mother tongue. The danger of miscommunication and conveying the wrong message is even greater than before. You, just like your audience, may be suffering from screen exhaustion, the internet connection might be playing up, not to mention distractions in your work space. In normal times, it’s problematic to attract and keep your audience’s attention. In a distant environment the challenge is even greater.
In order to continue to motivate your teams and convince your clients to trust you, it’s more important than ever to master presentation skills in English.
