Virtual Speaking & Communication Skills

High-impact speaking training for virtual teams, online meetings, presentations and pitches

Now more than ever, we need to be able to communicate effectively online. But you can’t just swap face-to-face meetings with Skype or Zoom and expect to get the same results. So how do you turn up the dial on your online communication impact so you engage and influence your audience, no matter where they are?

These four professional communications skills training courses are delivered fully online. Whether you need to give a conference talk, speak in a virtual team meeting, lead a sales pitch online or get tailored support, choosing the right course will show you how to influence, inspire, and build rapport for successful and effective speaking – even when you’re in different locations.

The problem with moving online

There’s a real and pressing need to move more and more face-to-face interactions into the virtual world. 

But unless you’re prepared and have the right skills in place, remote meetings and events can quickly dampen your speaking impact. When you introduce a screen, weird things can happen to the dynamics, such as:

  • Participants are tempted by multiple distractions - the ‘ping’ of email notifications, the doorbell, the pile of washing etc. Prezi’s State of Attention study shows 95% of all business professionals multitask during meetings.
  • Vital eye contact and instant body language feedback is interrupted
  • The flow of communication can be one-way and stilted
  • Movement is restricted, reducing important non-verbal cues
  • Personalities, humour and charisma that usually ‘light up a room’ can fizzle out on screen
  • People can suddenly feel exposed without their ‘wing men or women’ in the room
  • A lack of feedback results in awkward silences or people rushing to fill gaps with waffle
  • Poorly communicated messages are more difficult to clarify and important information can be lost
  • Technology blips lead to frustration and time wasted

The stakes are high but few people are sufficiently equipped to make online connections truly count.

The result of this?

  • Overly long meetings or presentations that make your audience tune out
  • A lack of need to interact so participants are disengaged and forget what you’ve said
  • Jumbled and disorganised messaging structures that leave the audience confused  
  • Poor leadership leaving call participants confused and frustrated
  • Meeting participants who are less confident about speaking up online go unheard, leading to a lack of diverse voices and one-dimensional decision making
  • Meetings that become tick-box exercises rather than useful and progressive
  • Speaking, sales and influencing opportunities wasted
  • Drops in efficiency and team cohesion
  • Time wasted
