Recent events have made virtual communication an indispensable alternative to in-person classroom instruction. Without the advantage of face-to-face interactions, many are turning to virtual video as a close approximation. Yet, the transition to a video-centric approach can be challenging even with the best tools. Many people do not feel comfortable or confident speaking on camera, and translating an in-person approach to an on-camera one can be tricky. This training provides specific tips and techniques to help participants overcome barriers to communication effectiveness in the virtual realm.

This session is presented by Speaker Dynamics CEO Karin Reed, author of On-Camera Coach: Tools and Techniques for Business Professionals in a Video-Driven World.
