Research shows audiences dread virtual presentations for three main reasons, borne out by painful past experiences:
The technology is clunky.
The presenters are boring.
The meetings are too long and waste time.
This is one of those books I wish I had written. Millions of web meetings take place every day, yet they are often boring, poorly conducted, and technologically challenged. But that doesn’t have to happen to you!
Now you can learn how to make your online meeting as engaging as an in-person presentation. Whether you’re presenting general information, training exercises, team meetings or sales pitches, this book helps you present like a pro and appear calm under pressure.
You can facilitate discussions, handle Voice over Internet (VoIP) issues, listen to and engage your audience, and multitask effectively. Plus you’ll have case studies, rules of thumb, ready-to-use tools, checklists, and tips to share with coworkers.
With this book, by Wayne Tunnel, you can become a competent, confident, credible online presenter and deliver real value to your audience.
I would certainly recommend this book as it covers all of the fundamentals of delivering virtual presentations. This is an ideal tool to help you to identify your presentation objectives, define your specific presentation outcomes, and then go on to customize your presentation to the needs of your virtual audience.

And I’m absolutely certain that you will feel far more capable of delivering a virtual presentation after you’ve read this book than before you cracked open the covers. But what impresses me most about Wayne Turmel is his humanity. On every page he makes it clear how much he cares about you. He truly wants you to be successful. He wants you to put this book to use and then make the best virtual presentation you’ve ever made in your entire life.
