5 Secrets to Improve Your Virtual Meeting Image (1½ hour - AM)


Online Workshops: Cantonese
Introduction

One moment of negative impression totally negates the personal and professional images built over time. Your dressing, body language, tone and choice of words has an impact on how the recipients value your message.

This is particularly enlarged in virtual meetings when audiences focus on one point – the monitor. Speakers have been seen sitting on the bed or under the dark bunk bed with messy hair with background filled with darkness, blankets, pillows, piles of clothes, messy bookshelves, barking dogs, crying kids or even family members changing in the background. Obviously, these virtual images linger in people’s mind and damage your professional credibility with clients, business partners, management or colleagues.

Join this interactive online workshop to learn how to maintain a professional business image when you attend/host virtual meetings. You will learn 5 practical secrets used by broadcasting professionals to create the right digital image and also tips on body language, lighting and backdrop settings during virtual sessions.
