3. VIRTUAL STORYTELLING: How to Engage Your Audience Virtually with On-Camera Charisma Coaching

Virtual business meetings, pitches, presentations and client engagement are here to stay. It might take a hybrid form in the months ahead but how you and your team communicate in a virtual setting is a crucial skill for your team to master both externally and internally. Yet so many remote interactions are a cross between PowerPoint Slide Karaoke, a sleep-inducing data dump and a one-sided poorly lit lecture by wonderful professionals who transform into stiff, unsmiling robots when the computer camera turns on. This regrettable problem can be resolved with some engaging and practical training from a speaker who not only worked at SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, but is a regular guest TV commentator on CNN, Global’s The Morning Show, and The Social and who has given virtual workshops to Fortune 500 executive teams, busines owners, physicians, professors and other leaders in fifteen countries.

Learning Outcomes Include:

  • Know how to capture and become a magnet for your audience’s attention.
  • How to build the timeless skill of storytelling for business, regardless of the medium (virtual or F2F) to persuade any audience, to build culture, to sell, to improve relationships, to recruit, or to create community
  • How to balance analytical/data driven messages so that you can connect emotionally with the audience and reach their hearts.
  • How to avoid the data dump and get your audience to remember your key message that you want them to act on.
  • How to create on-camera confidence and charisma to lower your own stress and increase audience motivation by up to 50%
