ZOOM LIKE A BOSS: ROCKING THE VIRTUAL

PLATFORM

I do not work or get paid for recommending a specific platform. That being said, I’ve used them ALL and only ONE provides the ease & best experience for attendee along with the flexibility for me as the speaker/trainer (I can even use this on the go from my Iphone) and the tools to keep my virtual platform fresh and entertaining as I engage my participants.

I will share how to use this platform, not just the technical explanation but also the strategic explanation in an entertaining way!

Learning Outcomes:

  • The Best Platform why’s
  • The Basics
  • The Extras
  • The Experience
  • The Other benefits (productivity, sharing recordings, easy registration, tracking engagement tools, plus so much more)

I will actually go onto the platform in front of the attendees and show as I teach. I will provide the WHAT, the WHY and then go online while showing what I’m doing on-screen with the HOW.

ROCKING THE VIRTUAL CLASSROOM 101 – Show Up

Stronger Virtually?

What is a Virtual Classroom? Why is the preparation for this so important? What is the right and wrong way to deliver your content? How do you deliver it LIVE 24/7? The virtual classroom is about connection, engagement, tools, interactivity and making the content sticky.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The definition of a virtual classroom
  • Understanding the mistakes which create disengaged participants
  • Keeping your virtual classroom engaging even when you are NOT live
  • The critical parts like accountability and rewarding completion per step
  • The virtual connection
  • The Engagement process
  • The Tools which are easy and make all the difference
  • The Interactivity (more than just polls, how about breakout groups, and shifting rolls)
  • Making your content sticky

THE STRATEGIC VIRTUAL PRESENTATION

Many companies provide online and virtual content the same way they do in person and it creates overwhelm. Most participants have a short attention span because they are always thinking about their current priorities. Being strategic ensures your participants look at your virtual classroom as a movie. Movies are entertaining but they also provoke conversation afterward while inspiring. I will break down my process on how to do this. Yes, make your virtual experience a movie. This does NOT mean a ton of bells and whistles with no content or focus on the participants. This means creating a process to engage your participants by giving them an experience which creates change. The best part is, you do not have to be technically savvy to make this happen. If you can speak into a webcam, you are good!

Session Outcomes:

  • This is about ensuring your company or organization keeps virtual learning and working up to date
  • This is also about ensuring post-session results
  • Generations require different learning tools – I will share how this satisfies ALL generations
  • Have you thought about an ALL Hands Meeting or Company

Conference or nationwide training? This will save you so much money in travel!

EXPERTS ZOOMIFIED: The Strategic Zoom

Experts I serve include, but not limited to, speakers, authors, trainers, meeting planners, leaders and influencers. My goal is to teach experts how to leverage zoom to elevate their platform while growing their business. The keywords are ELEVATE, INFLUENCE & SERVE all via zoom. It’s more than just hopping on a platform and speaking.

As a Zoom Expert for 9 years and Zoom License Administrator, I know the ins and out of zoom. As a professional speaker for 15 years, I know how to deliver an engaging and strategic presentation. Combine all of this experience and expertise you get a presentation ideal for the expert that wants to persuade or inspire their audience to go deeper with them.

Session Outcomes:

  • The Three Must-Haves to inspire and persuade
  • Why Zoom is most ideal
  • Structuring the Experience
  • This is perfect if you need to sell a book, course or program!
