Speaking topics

Virtually Brilliant

It was already difficult mastering the art of speaking to an audience who were directly infront of you. Now, the new world of on-line meetings, webinars and zoom conferences have created a new form of pressure for presenters. It's much too easy for an online audience to become disengaged and your message to become lost.

With practical and friendly tips for every sort of gathering both in the real world and virtual, Leanne and James take you through each of the stages of presenting and show you how to keep your audience sitting up and eager for more. From researching your topic to adding humour and interest, from using your voice effectively to conquering your nerves, the Virtually Brilliant approach will see even the most experienced speaker improve their skills enormously.

It will give confidence to those who have never delivered a speech before and will allow those who have done it many times to hone and finesse their skills for the virtual space.

You will learn how to:

  • Turn your presentation into a compelling story.
  • Use an economy of words to bring clarity to your message
  • Notice your nervous symptoms and channel your fear into excitement
