Remote Presentation

There are few opportunities when you get to interact with your higher management other than meetings, hence you should make use of this and show your communication skills as well as prove your understanding of the business. The most effective tool you can use to communicate to people in the meeting is through presentations even if it is remote, as you have audio and video in this too.

Giving a remote presentation is not very different from the real one except for the fact that you are not physically facing the people you are talking to, however they can see your visual so give an effective speech using the following tips which also apply for real meetings.

  • It is well known that people are more attentive when watching visuals so make sure that the presentation you have prepared contains a few pictures along with text to explain yourself.
  • You obviously have knowledge about the subject matter that you will speak about but it is important to do a thorough research on it before the meeting so that you can deliver your speech with confidence and are ready to answer any questions thrown at you.
  • Knowing a little bit more about the people you will be addressing will help you to interact with them and involve them thus keeping the attention level high and your presentation appreciated.
  • Do not overdo with charts or graphs that people will not pay the slightest attention to. Share only those graphs or charts that you will refer to during the meeting.
  • Speak within your limits. If you know that you have limited knowledge on a subject do not tread too deep into that topic.
  • Planning is important in all spheres of life and so while preparing for the meeting make sure you are clear on how you will begin and end that is your presentation should have an introduction followed by the main context or subject matter, then a brief summary followed by a good closing.
  • Check your system,devices and also whether you have all the files or data ready to share online before the meeting because time is precious and the reason you are doing a remote presentation is that all participants are busy and you cannot make them wait online while you search for some some lost file.
