Abstract

This chapter is excerpted from 'Delivering Effective Virtual Presentations'. The virtual environment has led to opportunities that previously existed only in real time and at on-site locations. For example, the advent of GoToMeeting, WebEx, Google Hangouts, YouTube, TED Talks, and many other platforms has transformed the way in which we meet, present, and interact. However, the way in which students are instructed to create and deliver presentations, to plan and prepare for meetings, and to seek and participate in training has not altered - or in the best of circumstances has received only minimal attention. In fact, oral presentation instruction in most classes still follows the traditional speech-making (or formal address) approach for teaching students the concepts of creating and delivering effective presentations. Organizations have recognized the impact of web conferences and virtual meetings to their bottom line. However, their employees have learned how to navigate the virtual environment for presentations and meetings through trial and error. Numerous training and consulting groups have created guides for different areas of the virtual presentation. Companies who market the various platforms and tools also offer assistance with training (user documentation or guides) for the technology. Delivering Effective Virtual Presentations offers these individuals a user-friendly method to fill the gap between their existing knowledge, skills, and abilities, and those necessary for the virtual presentation environment. In a world driven by technology, the absence of instructional guides and materials for the 'how-to' of delivering effective virtual presentations must be addressed. This book provides a practical approach with clear guidelines for creating and delivering webinars, e-Meetings, virtual presentations, and virtual product demonstrations, including checklists and examples. Whether you are a college student, an employee, or a supervisor/manager/executive, this book will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to be an effective virtual presenter.
