#SkillUP: How to Win Over your Virtual Audience

Friday, April 24, 2020 from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Now that most of us are online, how do you still impress your audience? Join us to learn core practices for public speaking that translate to virtual presentations. Whether you’re the lead facilitator on an online meeting, interviewing for a new job, or trying to put your best foot forward during a team meeting. The video camera is on, NOW WHAT?

We’ll be joined by Liz Brunner, 30-year media veteran and CEO of her own firm Brunner Communications about how to put your best foot forward including what YOU do to physically prep to be on camera. Secondly, we’ll hear from Karla Driskill, VP of Hollister Institute about how to capture the attention of your virtual audience and shift your mindset to ensure audience engagement. This will be an interactive session where you’ll have the opportunity to both practice these skills in virtual breakout rooms and then dive into Q&A with our guest experts.  

This webinar is part of our #SkillUP series. Our #SkillUP series is a webinar series to engage Boston’s workforce to become even better at their digital skills as they manage work and manage themselves through COVID-19. Sessions will focus on the actions an individual can take during this time to be a better contributor, manager, or leader in their company and society. 

This session is free to members and non-members, but registration is required.
