Details of the sessions:



This short course is designed for competent speakers who wish to polish their skills when working with technology.

Technology has advanced rapidly over the past five to ten years, with the introduction of Webinar, Facetime, Skype, Google Hang-out, Oovoo, Tango, Viber etc.

Businesses now recognize the value of introducing new methods of communication that reduce cost, time, as well as their carbon footprint. However, too few businesses acknowledge the skills required to work with this new format. This course aims to teach participants the tools and techniques necessary to accommodate this change.


Session 1: LIVE Presentation Redefined

A rudimentary breakdown of the contrasting skills between live and live-streamed presentation. 

Shared examples of good and bad Webinars, TedEx talks, Slide Shares etc.



Amplifying voices over technology, alters delivery.

Participants will first listen, respond and affect their own voices focusing on clarity, stress and impact.


Session 3: LIVE-STREAM

Focusing on non-verbal communication and how to frame the best picture.

Participants will take time to consider their on-screen image and the subsequent impact its story tells.


Session 4: WEBINAR

Combining online presentation skills with voice over. Ensuring the two are balanced and corresponding.

Working how best to animate the voice, to compliment the visual images.
