Effective Virtual Presentations
Sponsored by Stanford Medicine's Office of Faculty Development and Diversity.
You most certainly have had the unfortunate opportunity to sit through a boring, unorganized webinar or conference call in which the speaker droned on aimlessly.
The power and promise of virtual communication is the ability to engage and educate people far and wide. But in order to realize this promise, presenters need to plan, prepare, and practice in the right way. This 90-minute presentation walks you through simple steps that will help you plan and present compelling, valuable webinars and conference calls that your audience will follow with rapt attention.
