Are you prepared for working in the digital world? Whether we like it or not, it is going to take a long time to get back to in-person events. But even when we get back to normal, the convenience of virtual events means they will continue to be prevalent. Instead of resisting the change, it is time to learn and prepare for networking and presenting in the virtual world.
In this episode, we talk about why virtual events are here to stay, and how you can embrace them. We share what types of products you should invest in to appear more professional on digital meetings. We talk about the importance of testing and familiarizing yourself with new technology and programs. We also share why it is important to practice using a digital stage and the importance of emphasizing the human connection.
“You schedule 20 minutes by yourself before every presentation so that you are in the room before everybody else. You’ve tested the equipment before everybody else. You’ve moved the slides. You know where everything is. You know how it works, and you’re confident in it.” – Adam Moore
“I really do think, that as we move forward a way to differentiate yourself in a sea of competitors who are just like you is how well are you handling a virtual environment?”– Adam Moore
“It’s very important for you to be engaged, to interact with the audience, just as you were to have a live one-on-one. Just because the person isn’t physically there doesn’t mean you still don’t want to see you react.”– Adam Moore
