How to Prepare for a Virtual Presentation

  • Get the lighting right
  • Choose the right background
  • Know the technology you’ll be using for the presentation
  • Maintain good eye contact by looking directly into the computer’s camera
  • Put the camera at eye level
  • The camera should frame your face, neck, and shoulders so make sure you aren’t too far away
  • Be enthusiastic so it helps the audience to stay engaged
  • Involve the audience by utilizing the chat function, polls, raised hand feature, etc.
  • Pace yourself and be sure to not talk too slow or fast
  • Let your personality show through your presentation and have fun
