We are often involved in discussions about how to make virtual classroom sessions interesting and effective.
The article How to Give a Killer Presentation by Chris Anderson from the Harvard Business Review June 2013 issue takes the reader back to the basic prerequisite for delivering interesting presentations. The ideas apply regardless of the delivery platform.
- Frame your story – make sure that you have something interesting to say
- Plan your delivery – know your story and don’t be in the position of having to read notes or look at a teleprompter
- Develop Stage Presence – practice stillness and eye contact.
- Plan the multimedia – don’t overuse and avoid using media of yourself – you are already live!
This is a pretty sparce summary of the ideas in the article and it is a good written presentation.
