As a result of COVID-19, a majority of our interactions are now conducted virtually. Environmental factors such as poor lighting and background movement can become distractions and have implications on the level of engagement from your audience. Additionally, your body language and eye contact can also affect audience participation or hinder it. Join us for this workshop and gain tips and strategies for improving the quality of your physical surroundings and your presentation style during virtual presentations.
