AAR Core Level Seminar - Presenting with impact in 'hybrid' times

Via Zoom video conference


We have been thrust into a virtual world of presenting which has its challenges but at least we could keep our slippers on. Now, due to work opening again, we are back at the agency facing our clients across a room.

This interactive session will be looking at both those contexts and the added complication of blended styles of meetings and pitches. This seminar will support you staying connected and reconnecting.

It's time to face the music and remind yourself how much more interesting communication is when it is a live medium and to take advantage of that, whilst still being mindful that many interactions will be virtual as well. It’s time to upskill and understand how to build chemistry and how to wow your clients. 

Tessa Morton has been delivering presentation skills training in the industry for many years and she, like everyone else, has been learning the best way to present with impact in this new format. She wants to share everything she has learnt in the last 2 years with us, to give us the confidence to use virtual platforms to our advantage and to get you back on your feet for those live interactions.

Seminar Overview 

In this interactive seminar, you’ll be given simple strategies that will increase your personal confidence, engagement potential and success in internal and external pitches, live and online.
