Bring Your Communications to Life! / The Hybrid Human Connection
In this fun, two-hour virtual, interactive workshop, we lay a solid foundation for presenting and communicating in this new hybrid world!
We’ll first address how to make a human connection — intellectually and emotionally — with your listeners. You’ll learn best practices for presenting with confidence, clarity and passion. Then, we’ll dig into the specifics of how to communicate in a virtual world — when you’re not in the same room! Teams can be scattered, clients may still want virtual meetings, and bandwidth can be at a premium. It’s critical to be intentional about making those human connections, in person and virtually.
