For many people, speaking in public is VERY uncomfortable. And it's worse online. You have to talk into a microphone on your computer. You can barely hear people. You look awful on the webcam. You don't know where to focus when you listening. Plus, whether you are using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or WebEx, the software can be confusing to navigate. For this one-hour class, we will discuss: - Speaking more clearly on a webconference; - Overcoming your anxiety; - What is good webconference etiquette; - How to better use PowerPoint during a webconference. The class will focus on skills specifically related to communication using online tools. We will include time for your questions. NOTE: The class fee is $20. You MUST buy tickets in advance.
