The last months have seen a huge increase in demand for virtual speeches and presentations. As Covid-19 has put a stop to travel, conferences and meetings, we still need to connect and get together.
Virtual meetings have become the norm, at least until we can all meet again in person.
A virtual speech should be more than just a person in front of a webcam.
It should be more inspiring than a webinar. Done right, a virtual speech can be a better experience than seeing a speaker live – more engaging, more interactive, and a better learning opportunity. (Done wrong it can be a disaster…)
Virtual Speeches should not just be virtual versions of the real thing – they should take advantage of the unique possibilities for connecting, interacting, polling, and communicating with the audience.
They should also take advantage of the features that modern technology offers, from how the speaker is presented, to how he/she interacts with the audience and to how the content is delivered.
