Register here for the webinar: Don’t just turn up – How to make a positive impression online

Our experience of lockdown has meant we are now all too familiar with running our working lives through virtual meetings, presentations, interviews and even social gatherings. Making an impact online presents challenges - but it also offers opportunities. This webinar will help you know exactly what you need to do to maximise your online presence and create a memorable and distinctive impact, no matter the context you find yourself in. We will cover:

  • Brilliant basics - from equipment to camera positioning, make sure that you are presenting yourself in the best light. We are all broadcasters now, so make sure your camera technique is enabling your impact, rather than reducing it.
  • It’s still about the audience - understand how to influence your listeners in a virtual environment. You’ll learn what works…and what to avoid in order to fully engage the people that matter to you.
  • Virtually speaking - voice is more important than ever in making an impact online. What you say and how you say it is the biggest indicator of success in engaging others.Learn how to use your instrument and how to be clear with your intention to help others understand you fully

At the end of this webinar, you will know exactly how to create a professional broadcaster impact online; you will know how to approach your audience with a process for engaging them and how to use your voice - the most important online delivery tool - for maximising your online presence.
