VIRTUAL EVENTS & WEBINARS
The world has changed massively in recent years and so has the way Luke is able to inspire your audience with your events.
Virtual events and webinars are a perfect way to inspire and empower your people from the comfort of their own homes. Lukes has been able to transfer his personable and engaging talks online and it is now become easier than ever to engage your workforce with a virtual event.
As we look ahead to the coming years, we've learnt that these kinds of events and webinars are the events of the future. Virtual events offer endless possibilities, from connecting with future clients to hosting meetings from home. Unparalleled in knowledge, Luke captivates audiences regardless of whether they are there in person or delivered via an online platform.
Despite being online, every event and webinar is different. These require substantially different design and delivery than Lukes's traditional talks. As part of the process, Luke works with your organisers to understand the event context and objectives, other event content, audience profiles and relevance of the event to their work and lives, and the platforms being used. He tailors his presentation content, format, and delivery style to match the constraints and possibilities of virtual event platforms, where relevant using interactive approaches and tools to generate engagement and useful application of the ideas shared in the session.
It's never been easier to inspire your audience. So what are you waiting for? Give your audience an experience they'll remember for years to come.
BRING YOUR VIRTUAL EVENT TO LIFE
We've all been in those virtual sessions where the speaker shares their slides which covers the whole screen and only leaves a small box to see and engage with the speaker. These kinds of sessions make it extremely hard for the audience to emotionally engage with the speaker as they are unable to visually connect with the stories being shared. This will often lead to the audience being disengaged due to their primary focus being the screen-filled slide show being shared in front of their eyes. When you host a virtual event or a webinar.
After working with event organisers Luke has been able to create a solution to the example that you may often see above. As part of Luke's virtual events and webinars, he uses a custom-built studio to be able to deliver a highly engaging and visually pleasing talk. This puts Luke at the centre stage of your screen ensuring that the audience can connect with him both emotionally and visually. He uses a screen behind him to share his slides which takes the pressure of screen sharing off the organisers and allows Luke to do what he does best, inspiring your audience.
PRINCIPLES FOR SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL EVENTS & WEBINARS
Many presenters, often even professional speakers, approach speaking on an online platform essentially the same way as they would for an in-person presentation, using the same presentation style and identical slides. This is likely to lead to a poor experience at best for audiences.
Based on his extensive experience, Luke advises following five key principles for success in virtual events,
1. Presentation style tailored for online
It is a completely different experience for an audience if they are sitting in a conference room rather than watching a screen at work or at home, where distractions abound. Presentation lengths should often be reduced or broken into shorter segments, interactive elements used, and style adjusted. It makes a big difference to stand and talk to a single camera instead of walking and turning to address different parts of the room. An upbeat, engaging style is essential, but shouldn’t feel out of place in the context of an online session.
