I have been asked recently by C-Suite executives and associations about delivering successful virtual presentations and exactly what makes a presentation engaging and productive for the attendees.
Having delivered hundreds of presentations virtually in the United States, South America, Europe, and Asia I have discovered three key elements that are the cornerstones of a successful virtual meeting.
The Components of a Successful Virtual Presentations
The three key components for running a successful virtual presentation are real-time actionable content, audience interaction and stable reliable virtual technology. Let’s Take a look at each one of these elements and see how they contribute to a successful virtual presentation.
Real-Time Actionable Content
Content is King and you must have good content in addition to having a strategies for successful virtual presentations. Solutions oriented leaders need real time actionable information to make accurate decisions in an ever-changing global work environment.
Delivering accurate real time information is one component of a successful virtual presentation. The other component is to make sure that your attendees receive actionable takeaways during the meeting.
It has been proven that when actionable takeaways are included in a training program or keynote speech, it increases the attendee’s attention span and they become highly engaged!
Audience interaction needs to be one of the cornerstones of your strategies for successful virtual presentations. When conducting a virtual presentation, it is imperative that the delivery is highly visual.
There are different ways that you can increase interactivity in your meetings. You can incorporate polling, hand raising, Q&A, and other interactivity in the program to enhance the experience and deliver a great ROI!
When I’m delivering a virtual program whether it’s a training session or a keynote speech, I always give the attendees information on how they can contact me after the event to answer any questions.
This way the lessons and skills learned by the attendees in the program will have a better chance of sticking and being implemented at work.
Stable and Reliable Virtual Technology
Successful virtual meetings rely on technology. This means the platform that you’re using must work and you also need to have a backup plan in case things go wrong. And they will!
Mastering Virtual Presentations
Whether you’re using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, or a proprietary program things can still go wrong, and you must master the technology.
Experienced and professional speakers generally have a tech team to create landing pages, registrations, and email reminders to enhance the attendee experience.
Also, it’s important that the quality of your program stands the test of time. This means audio quality, lighting, background setting and overall ease of presentation are critical.
Many companies and organizations are also requesting prerecorded programs to assure the successful delivery of their program while avoiding possible technology glitches.
These are just a few major components that you should focus on to assure that your next virtual presentation is a huge success!
