Online: Virtual Meeting Virtuoso: So engaging, they’ll stop multi-tasking, stay focused and love you for it - 2 sessions

Virtual is the new normal in the time of covid-19. Keeping participants engaged and focused during on-line meetings can be a challenge. Leading and contributing to virtual meetings requires specific skills, reflexes and behaviours, as well as a whole new mindset. How do you keep people engaged and participatory? How do you share your genius without monopolizing the conversation – or being spoken over? How do you show-up professionally in the ‘virtual’ world when all they can see is your face on the screen (if you’re even using video). How do you get results and follow-through after the meeting’s over? These are some of the questions you’ll get answers to during this two-part training.
