Technology

-There are a lot of different platforms out there (e.g. Zoom, GoToMetting, Skype, WebEx Zoom / Skype/ GoToMeeting/ etc ) and while many have great and similar functionality such as the ability to have different views of participants (e.g. gallery view, speaker view), change background, mute / turn up volume ,do screen sharing and switch presenters, do polling) they all work a bit differently and you need to proactively master the functionality of the platform you use most. Don’t fumble and stumble through your meetings, invest some time to get to mastery.

-Observe Murphy’s law; what can go wrong with technology , will go wrong, so always have a back-up – e.g. have a phone option / email presentations to participants in case the screen sharing fails.

  • Before the meeting / presentation, log in at least 5 minutes before the start time check your tech. don’t be complacent, don’t wing it
  • All platforms provide lots of on demand training videos, make good use of them.
  • -Get the basics right; a decent camera and microphone is a good start.

Presenting - why you need to give it more time and attention!
