Delivering and embracing virtual presentations; from reluctance to rejoicing

Date: Tuesday 28 September
Time: 12.00 – 12.50 pm (AEST)
CPD Points: 1.0

Join Matthew Doig, a human potential consultant for a workshop that will examine how to prepare and deliver informative, impactful presentations to virtual audiences.

About: Communication is fundamental for all professionals and most have developed skills applicable to the ‘old world’ where travel and personal interactions were the norm. While we will return to some aspects of a previous normality, awareness and acceptance of virtual tools will remain as cost and generally effective media.

With this, a world of the virtual workplace has well and truly arrived, and it is having significant impacts across all sectors including forestry. The success of the forestry professional in this space will hinge on how well we are able to adapt to interact with stakeholders across various virtual platforms and applications. Of particular importance will be the ability to prepare and deliver informative, impactful presentations to virtual audiences. This workshop will be presented in an interview style format to address the key considerations in planning and executing virtual presentations. It examines the nature of the virtual medium and where transformations from traditional presentation format and style are required.

Presentation and session planning approaches are covered along with how to best employ common features found on the various platforms which enhance transfer of information and learning. Personal presentation (you), physical positioning (your space) and a bearing advantageous for the virtual setting will also considered.

The session will be summarised with a checklist of critical points to cover during planning and preparation of a virtual presentation.
