Today, it is our smartphone, tablet, and computer webcams that allow us to connect with our teams as well as suppliers, clients, and sales prospects.
This is the current reality of our daily working lives, video calls and meetings are now the norms.
And since we are keeping it real, distractions - whether you realize it or not - are now also part of your meeting agenda!
The physical disconnect makes it that much easier for your audience to drift away to deal with other work, the dog, the kids, dinner or to take a quick peek at Tiktok.
So how do you keep your audience engaged and how do you ensure they are still taking you seriously from the other side of the screen?
In this episode of Help, My Business Is Growing, International Communication Consultant & Presentations Coach Pam Wigglesworth reveals how you can nurture, build and develop your executive presence. And in this "Age of Zoom," we are currently living through, it is even more critical to have an executive presence and to ensure that you project it when the camera starts rolling.
