Make Your Virtual Presentations as Powerful and Productive as Your Face-to-Face Presentations

Virtual Presentation Skills have become one of the essential tools to have in your arsenal as a Leader and Persuasive Communicator. The world is moving more and more towards fully embracing virtual presentations as a “go to” mode of delivering meaningful messages. In a study by the Harvard Business Review, 70% of respondents said they anticipate virtual presenting to become an even more significant part of how they communicate in the future.

As a Virtual Communicator, you want and need your customer’s full attention, but you might not be getting it. According to research, 90% of customers admitted to multi-tasking during virtual sales presentations. This creates an inefficient vehicle for communicating your value proposition. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Tom McCarthy and his company FIRE-UP Training, has spent over a decade training Executive, Sales, and Technical Presenters on how to optimize their virtual presentations. Tom will be showing you how you can master the art of making your virtual presentations just as powerful and effective as your face-to-face sales presentations. You will learn how to stop the insanity of giving virtual presentations that attendees aren’t engaged in. This training will be a game-changer for your virtual presentations!
