Audience Engagement Strategies
Engaging and connecting with the audience is more than just asking for a thumbs up or yes in the chat. Jennifer can speak about why engagement deepens one's connection with the audience, share specific strategies, and highlight available tools both free and paid.
Visualization / Using Visuals Effectively
Unconsciously, we judge people within seconds of meeting them. Your presentation visuals are no exception. Your audience is making subconscious about your authenticity and credibility based on the quality of your visuals. Jennifer can share practical strategies as well as the cognitive impact of good and bad visuals.
Developing Valuable and Authentic Content
As experts we have a plethora of information to share but how much and in what context is important. Our desire to provide value, impact, and transformation sometimes translates into information overwhelm for the audience. Jennifer can provide insights into content development.
Overcoming Camera Shyness
The fear of public speaking is no joke. Adding a camera can make it worse. Many people feel self-doubt and anxiety at the thought of being on camera. While not a licensed therapist, Jennifer has several strategies she can share to feel more comfortable in front of the camera, help alleviate anxiety, and boost self-confidence.
AI/Artificial Intelligence's Impact on Presenting Virtually
AI is changing how we work helping us become more efficient with specific tasks from writing to image creation. Specifically, presentation tools using AI are being developed and launched almost daily. Jennifer can discuss how AI (artificial intelligence) is impacting all aspects of presenting, how to leverage available tools, and ways the industry overall is changing.
As a presenter, Jennifer is genuine and on point. Her virtual presentation was the most engaging in the entire series I moderated this year.
