As so much of the business events world pivots to virtual meetings in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, what does that mean for the skill in presentation demanded of those who are speaking?
Roy Sheppard is a conference MC, a facilitator, an interviewer and an online course creator, who first worked with the team behind The Iceberg back in the 1990s. From a broadcasting background, Roy’s specialities include presentation training, and among his clients are both associations and corporates working in the medical sector.
In this video Roy makes the case that the switch to virtual now demands a higher level of presentation skill than is tolerated in face-to-face events where audiences are well-behaved and captive. Over video speakers now have to be “television-standard” to hold onto more distant and distracted attention spans.
