Body + Language – Tips for face-to-face and online

5 August 2020

This year has seen an explosion of webinar platform delivery!  So how do we ensure we are forming the best possible habits when it comes to body language, regardless of whether we are using an online medium or not!

This session has been designed to explore important steps to successful delivery for both presenters and presentations. Join our ever-popular presenter John Blake as he investigates tips for presenting while using your hands, face, posture, attire and movement to rock both webinars and face-to-face presentations.

He will walk you through proven tips for facilitating to a camera, staging, framing, reading and will provide hints to help learners learn better online.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Web-tips for body and language
  • Arm yourself, positive posture, mental movement
  • Attire with attitude and dizzying distractions
  • Face it – you’re keeping it
  • What to do with these hands?
  • Mirror, mirror, on the back wall
