With most events being conducted online these days, the importance of providing engaging, creative presentations — and making sure your speakers are doing the same — has become more important than ever. To cut through the many distractions and "Zoom fatigue" attendees face, speakers and planners must up their game in order to create more engaging, entertaining and fun sessions.
In this webcast, two presentation pros — Alan Davis, founder and designer, UltraDesign.ie and our newly announced speaker Matt Abrahams, lecturer at Stanford Graduate School of Business — will show viewers how to do just that, offering both simple changes to make in your visuals and delivery as well as overall ways to rethink how you are presenting your material. Viewers are sure to come away with plenty of ways to enhance the presentations for their next digital or hybrid event.
