Enhancing Engagement in Virtual Meetings and Presentations

The Virtual working world is here to stay, for a while at least. Are you finding it difficult to get people to engage in the “Virtual Space”? Do you find yourself staring at a screen when you wanted an interactive meeting? Are you aware of the tools available to you (polls, breakout rooms, sharing files in a chat box, etc)? Do you know how to leverage these tools to engage the people in your meeting or presentation?  

In this one-day workshop, we explore and actively experiment with very simple methods to engage an audience. These techniques apply to meetings, presentations, and workshops, and will work on all common communication platforms. As we go through the various tips and tricks, everyone will have the opportunity to experiment with the methods to understand how best they can be leveraged in your work. Through the course of the day, you will develop concrete strategies to create interactive dialogue in your work environment.
