3 tips on how to nail a remote presentation


Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all heard of Zoom and giving more and more presentations online. Some great, some good and some not so good! So to help you out here’s our 3 tips and tricks on how to nail a online presentation.

1. Prepare

To start, you’ll need to have your desktop computer or laptop with a webcam, headphones and a microphone. Make sure you have the software we’ve recommended installed and a good internet connection. Remember some software won’t work on a tablet or mobile, so always use a computer. Check with us if you’re not sure.

So how do you make yourself look and sound great? Dress simply and professionally and set up in a room with a plain background. Try a few options, but keep it simple. Your main source of light should be from in front of you, not behind or overhead, off to the side or from underneath. People want to see you and you want to be seen in the best possible light.

2. Test

Take the time to test, get used to the software, check your internet connection. We want to hear you, so if possible use a good microphone, ideally attached to headphones, and close doors to keep out any noise.

Make sure to have the camera positioned at eye level, not low and tilted up, or high and tilted down. Your head and shoulders should fill the frame. 

3. Keep it simple

To keep things simple, practise your presentation as much as you can beforehand, but on the day, relax! Take the time for a quick stretch or walk before you go live. You’ll feel way better and be more relaxed.

We want you to look and sound great, so remember: prepare, test and keep it simple!
