If you want your audience to always pick option c – then read on.
With your next virtual presentation, everything needs to be on 11. It’s better than 10 bigger, more interaction, better visuals, more personality to keep your audience engaged. This idea is from Spinal Tap, the gold standard in mockumentaries.
Why? A face to face event presents learners with ‘A room of experience and a screen of distraction’. Virtual presentations reverse this context states technology advisor Simon Waller. Online provides ‘A room of distractions and a screen of experience’.
How do you compete with a room of distractions and engage your audience and keep their attention? The answer is definitely not:
A boring webinar... zzz
Another video call
A physical event replicated exactly online (and passed off as new).
Virtual presentations require presenters to design an experience.
And now you can learn how.
Virtual presentations every audience member is on the front seat.

Yamini is a warm, professional and masterful storyteller. I had the pleasure of engaging her to mentor presenters for a major conference. She worked wonderfully with everyone from our most experienced senior leaders to our enthusiastic amateurs to prepare them for storytelling on the big stage. Yamini worked with our team to flesh out their narrative, find their own style and get comfortable engaging large audiences. She is passionate and generous with her knowledge. I cannot recommend Yamini more highly.
