As more virtual meetings are held, and more virtual conference and presentations are planned, the attached article highlights some of the best practices to experience an impactful virtual event…whether you are the presenter or an attendee. Interestingly, the advice is applicable to both live and virtual events. The main difference is the how.
Tip: Look into the camera and engage with the camera in an impactful way.

While things may go wrong technically (no, Zoom and Skype are not foolproof), your presentations can still be impactful by staying engaged with your audience, being real and authentic and engaging through questions and discussion.
