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.

Persuasion was written about as long ago as 500 BC by Aristotle who spoke of 'modes of proof' in his work on rhetoric. Walking into a marketing agency today and modes of proof are still spoken about! With the tools of power and persuasion should we immediately start out negotation? NO! at least, not necessarily, because sometimes the best negotiation strategy is to not negotiate! surprised? come and learn more about it in this online training.
