Riaz talks about how times have changed, and in 2021 everyone is a presenter. He shares some tips on how to become a great virtual presenter in 2021!
- Forget about yourself and point your focus forward to the audience. If you’re more worried about how you look and act on your side of the camera, you will not connect with the audience.
- Call people up, not calling them out. To get participation with the audience, ask questions that will bring the audience to you.
- Embrace the unpredictability. Things will not always work as planned; embrace it and roll with it.
- Act like a human. Less info and more emotion!
