Even for the experienced speaker, keeping an audience engaged & connected can be a challenge, especially while remote. In this session, we'll read the (Zoom) room & build a toolkit to speak with influence & advocate for yourself.
In this interactive workshop, Jen Jamula & Allison Goldberg of GoldJam Creative will help you improve your presentation skills by practicing ways to engage a variety of audiences remotely, & with impact.
