Join us for a members-only training session that will help
participants increase their ability to connect with various
internal and external virtual audiences in a relaxed,
confident, energetic manner.

This workshop, led by Seth Pendleton of KNP Communications, will cover concepts and skills related to presence and presentation, including nonverbal and vocal cues, as well as techniques for delivering key messages and handling challenging Q+A. Participants will also learn how to make sure their lighting, background, and other technical elements are supporting and not undercutting/distracting the audience.

At the conclusion of this training, each participant will have:
1) Learned how to communicate effectively in the limited “Zoom Box” context, including a focus on crafting an effective message and how to be relaxed and engaging on camera or in other virtual contexts.
2) Gained a better understanding of his or her unique style and personal communication challenges, particularly the power of non-verbal communication and what it projects to the audience.
3) Learned strategies for self-diagnosis and continuous improvement.

This is a recording of a webinar previously held live on June 24, 2021.
