Videoconferencing has become a preferred – and sometimes only – way of connecting with colleagues, clients, and stakeholders. But having productive videoconference meetings can be trickier than anticipated (especially when you are being distracted by an A+ view of Bob’s nose hairs). As it turns out, there’s more to having a virtual meeting than just letting your device or computer access your camera.

Join business communication and public speaking expert Lauren Sergy to discover practical, high-impact strategies that will boost your clarity, impact, and effectiveness in video conferences and virtual meetings. Get ready to laugh and learn in this engaging session, where we will cover:

  • How to manage your videoconferencing space and set-up for a polished, professional image
  • On-camera strategies for connecting and engaging more meaningfully with others
  • Speaking techniques to improve your clarity and get your message across
