You most certainly have had the unfortunate opportunity to sit through a boring, unorganized webinar, virtual class or presentation 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 interactive session walks you through specific steps that will help you plan and present compelling, valuable virtual content that your audience will follow with rapt attention.
