SIX TIPS FOR ENGAGING THE VIRTUAL ROOM

The rules of engagement have changed. The rapid change to virtual communication has brought with it the need for all of us to rethink and reskill ourselves on how we engage our audience.

Whether the audience is an Employee Town Hall, an Annual General Meeting, Investor Briefing or preparedness for a media interview, how we interact has changed significantly.  From understanding where our audiences are tuning in from, to the lack of body language cues that face to face engagement previously provided us, it is important to understand the new ground rules.
