How Good Are You at Webinars?
Webinars and Glossophobia
With the arrival of Covid-19, and the associated restrictions on business, the need to keep in contact with clients and potential clients has never been greater. Sending out newsletters is one way. Holding webinars and podcasts are a couple of other ways of doing so. BUT, many people fear public speaking. Indeed, a search on Google shows that we even have a name for the fear of public speaking – glossophobia.
As you will probably know, from your own experience, either as a presenter or as a listener, public speaking is a confidence trick: if the speaker sounds confident and seems to be at ease then the audience is at ease and listens to what the speaker has to say. If the speaker comes across hesitant, with a tremor in their voice, looks and sounds ill at ease, then people find the presentation unexciting, unmemorable. And we don’t need that.
Presentations are a necessity in business
Your chartered accountant has one of our Special Action Reports (SAR) for your consideration: Web Based Presentations – Online Meetings. It’s presented in the form of a quiz so that you can see how much you really know, when it comes to online presentations (webinars).
For example, question three asks “What is the most effective length for a live, online presentation?” Then there’s question twelve: “You can coordinate and host an effective web conference all by yourself, without a moderator, host, or MC (master of ceremonies)?”
Now it’s time to tally your score
When you have completed the quiz, you can add up your score and read the results. Along the way, you will be learning about your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to your webinar skills. Read more about the Webinar Quiz.
