Virtual Master Class Webinar Series

Interested in helping your team “level up” their virtual sales presentations?

Working from home and the adoption of and/or conversion to video meetings and sales calls now dance together hand-in-hand. And it is here to stay. Our research tells us that moving forward, even after our lives return to “normal” and we can safely meet face-to-face, people will still choose virtual and hybrid options because of the cost savings and convenience factors. It is time to embrace the opportunities that video-platform based presentations provide, as we all transition into this new market.

A Little Backstory

Like our clients, we have had to re-imagine our business too. Since the pandemic hit, Terri has spent much of her time reviewing countless virtual sales meetings, “Lunch & Learns”, product demonstrations, sales calls and conference presentations in an effort to help our clients figure out what’s working and what’s not.

Here is one thing we know for sure… whether speaking one-on-one, to a small group, or on a video conferencing platform call to 300+ people – presentation skills matter. Presenting online is just not the same as “in person”. Many people suffer from common shortcomings that adversely affect their results. Most of which just require a little finessing and insight into best practices. This is where we can help!

Next Steps

We ran multiple beta program versions to test for effectiveness of delivering “live” training content online, with shorter session times, and with groups as small as 10 and as big as 300+.
And now… we are proud to announce our newest program!

New Livestream Master Class

Webinar Series Overview

SPEAKER: Terri Sjodin, CPAE, CSP

Title: The Art of Presenting Persuasively - Delivering Your Message
with Impact (Virtually and In-Person)

The goal of this all-inclusive series is to help our clients save time, have FUN, and significantly improve their virtual presentation outcomes!

(Optional 5th Session)
Note: 5th session is an add-on small group workshop limited to approx. 6 participants + judges
TOPIC:
Persuasive Presentation Skills
TIME:
Each session is approximately 30 minutes plus 30 minutes Q&A = 1 hour, 4 hours total in the series.
SCHEDULING:
You can space the dates of each webinar as needed:
Example: 1 per day, or all four sessions in one day, 1 per week, or even 1 per month
.
(Timing can be adjusted to meet client requests)

Meeting remotely comes
with both highs & lows

Highs:
Highs: New technology can be fun and different, and incorporating video platforms provides a higher level of engagement. It's also effective with existing relationships (maintaining and moving things forward), and when used right, it has a “wow” factor.

Lows:
It is harder to create a connection virtually – especially with new prospects. A below-average or average presenter seems even more difficult to listen to on video/virtual platforms. (Common comments include: Ugh! So boring, too long, waste of time. What are they wearing? What/Who is in the background?)
