Training Course Outcomes
You’ve sat through sooooo many boring virtual presentations. You don’t want to be one of those presenters who drives others to multitask.
You’ve been giving virtual presentations for a while now, and you feel pretty good about your skills. Virtual presentations are here to stay, and you can’t afford to stay “pretty good.”
Could you up-level your virtual presentations a few notches? Are you making mistakes that even experienced virtual presenters make? The Virtual Master Presenter course will make you confident that your online presentations are all they can be.
After each 30- to 45-minute mini-lesson, you’ll adapt and implement the ideas in small workgroups. By the end of this course, you will learn how to…
- refine your virtual presentation setup
- incorporate specific interaction techniques
- create more compelling, attention-getting, professional-looking slides, even if you use just a few
- prepare for tech hiccups
- increase your audience engagement with tools at your fingertips
- avoid common virtual presentation mistakes that nearly no one is talking about.
- use the best tools for your desired outcome
- plan how you’ll implement the ideas relevant to you
By attending all 5 half-day, interactive, live, virtual master course, you’ll advance in these areas:
- SESSION 1 – SHOW YOUR BEST SELF
- know the nuances of lighting, background, camera angle, microphone, and personal image
- determine if standing up or sitting are better for you

- …and more
- SESSION 2 – ENHANCE YOUR EYE CONNECTION
- use a simple technique few presenters use to help your audience feel more connected to you

- view your notes and still look directly at the camera
- …and more
- SESSION 3 – AUDIENCE ENGAGEMENT TOOLS
- mitigate “Zoom fatigue”
- shift in-person presentation techniques to virtual
- reduce people’s itch to multi-task
- …and more
- SESSION 4 – CREATE DYNAMIC, ENGAGING SLIDES FOR MAXIMUM ENGAGEMENT AND RETENTION
- optimize your slides for viewing on mobile
- use relevant, non-smarmy animations to keep your audiences’ attention
- view your slides, group gallery, chat, and presenter view all on the same screen
- …and more
- SESSION 5 – PREPARE FOR TECH GLITCHES
- create a Plan B (or even Plan C) to ensure a quick recovery in case there’s a tech glitch
- basics you need to do in every virtual presentation to calm any tech anxiety
- show your slides from mobile if your computer shuts down
- …and more
Please note: 90% of what is covered is applicable with all online, live presentation platforms. We’ll cover some Zoom-specific tools, and won’t go at all into Teams, Google Meet, Webex, GoToWebinar, etc. We also won’t get into OBS, ATEM, eCamm, ManyCam or other add-on software.
You can be a masterful virtual presenter without these tools so the course focuses on skills everyone can implement, whether they use additional tools or not.
Before you can complete the course and become an official master presenter, you must meet the prerequisites which include:
- Pass the eSpeakers Certified Virtual Presenter (CVP) assessment. If you haven’t earned that certificate yet, you can schedule your assessment today.->
- Since this highly interactive course is taught over Zoom, you’ll get the most benefit when you have a reliable Internet connection and log in with your computer, not mobile device.
