Location – Virginia B, Lobby Level, Marriott Wardman Park, Washington DC
Local Time – Washington DC – 2.30 – 4.00 pm
Hybrid events are increasing, and this trend is set to continue for years to come. The idea of bringing an international conference into a delegate’s living room has appeal for delegates for whom savings in time and cost are key considerations when attending events.
Many speakers are very capable at delivering on-site speaking to live audiences. But speaking to an online audience at the same time provides greater complexity and challenges to the speaker.
Participants will learn how to present virtually, engage and encourage questions, set up an office or studio, work with a live host, and negotiate fees.
By attending this session, participants will:
1. Understand the potential business opportunity presented by virtual speaking.
2. Appreciate the different systems used and technology required.
3. Understand the special skills required for virtual speaking.
