It’s a big sign of the times.
First, large numbers of routine communications meetings were moved to the web. Now, many companies are rushing to shift even their large, high-stakes, face-to-face communication events – global sales meetings, leadership summits, and user conferences – to virtually delivered formats.
Experience shows that the transition to “virtual” is not a “natural” one for most presenters. Very few people come naturally prepared with the presentation delivery skills required to powerfully engage a virtual audience and deliver a clear, credible, and compelling message in a virtual venue.
