In preparing for your talk via video, you'll want to ensure it's as flawless as an in-person presentation. Begin by choosing a stable, fast ethernet connection and established video platform, like Zoom or GoToMeeting. You’ll hold your audience’s attention better when you support your presentation with compelling graphics or images. Practice sharing these visuals on screen before your presentation. Also learn to mute and unmute members of the audience, a key task if encouraging audience members to voice feedback .

When presenting in person, it's easy to acknowledge reactions and take questions from attendees. That's not as simple when presentating by videoconference. Happily, most videoconferencing platforms feature buttons letting your audience applaud, raise hands or submit written questions to be addressed at session's end. Gaining familiarity with these features can help make audience members feel part of your presentation. An easy way to take questions is to open your chat feature, then read and respond to each question written by audience members..

These recommendations are all among the more technical aspects of presentations via videoconferencing. Just as important are several other presentation strategies calling on skills appropriate for both in-person and video talks. Read further for specifics.

  • Give agenda to audience. In many in-person presentations audiences are alerted ahead of time to the upcoming program and its subject areas. This remains equally or more important in video. Email beforehand the program agenda, with time, link and outline.

  • Choose apt setting, attire. Your videoconference presentation should impart a tone of understated professionalism. Choose a quiet area with a neutral backdrop. Wear business attire featuring solid colors, except white or black. They don’t look good on camera.

  • Surmount camera concerns. To maximize engagement with participants, look directly into the camera so you can maintain eye contact with them. If you look at their faces on the screen, it will appear that you’re looking down and they won’t be able to see your eyes. It helps to attach a picture of a family member or friend atop your computer, positioned right about the camera. Imagine you're presenting to that person. Smile genuinely. And to gauge audience reactions, just glance down at their faces on your screen periodically.
