With the sudden and rapid shift to remote work, our communication channels followed suit and moved online. Today, everyone is a digital communicator and virtual presenter. Whether you are facilitating online classes, leading virtual meetings, or speaking to remote audiences, your virtual communication skills are now a critical skill. 

In this interactive online discussion, we will discuss what it takes to be a dynamic virtual presenter. We will consider five skills that every online facilitator needs and review new tactics for engaging remote audiences. 

Whether you are brand new to live online delivery or have been facilitating virtual events for years, and regardless of which online collaboration platform you use, you will be sure to leave this session with new ideas, new tips, and new techniques for improving your virtual events. 


  • Present content to remote participants with professionalism and poise
  • Create a dialogue with participants from the start
  • Engage online attendees using common virtual classroom tools
  • Effectively handle typical challenges that arise during virtual classes
  • Assess your current virtual delivery skills and create an action plan for improvement
