Communicate and connect with remote audiences

If you’re like most technology workers, you’re doing your job remotely some or all the time. Presentations that were once in person, now happen via virtual platforms.

Virtual communication empowers people to express ideas in new ways. Yet if it’s not used well, the medium can leave audiences cold.

By maximizing the benefits of virtual, while minimizing the drawbacks, presenters can create experiences that delight and move audiences.

You’ve got the platform — now practice using it to get your ideas across to remote audiences. The Presenting Virtually™ on-demand course will help you apply techniques from the guidebook to hone your virtual communication through short and engaging video-based lessons plus hands-on exercises and reference tools.
