Virtual Networking and Public Speaking
Presented by Jessica Chang Irish


Do you have "Zoom fatigue?" Do you feel like your virtual meeting audience is tuning out? Or maybe you're the one on "audio only" for every meeting. If you feel like you're going cross eyed from staring at the screen for one online meeting after another AND you miss that in-person connection with your colleagues, this presentation will help you feel refreshed and more confident in how you look, sound and engage with your audience. Emmy Award-Winning Reporter and Public Speaking Coach Jessica Chang Irish will show you:

  • how to look and sound your best on camera
  • how to prepare for a virtual meeting, whether you're a leader, presenter or participant
  • and how to boost engagement during a virtual meeting.
