'Crushing It' On the Conference Call

The key ingredients of a riveting online speaking presence are no different than what it takes to shake up the conference stage.

Really, it's the same stuff I've taught my students for over a decade during the in-person Yes You Can Speak public speaking training. It’s just that being online can feel really different without the audience's feedback you typically get when you’re in a physical space together - like the sensory experience of seeing, hearing, feeling, and attuning to the energy of the group.

So what do you do to get over the hump, to stand up and stand out with confidence, to land your message with riveting impact?
