    Hierarchy of Virtual

    We talked about the basic set up you need to stand out on the virtual stage on last week's episode. So what's next? While we know that we should avoid presenting with just a laptop looking up our nose, at what point do you call your home set up "done"? Andrew Tarvin, CSP, is on the show this week discussing the different levels of virtual presentations ranging from presenting with just your laptop to multiple camera presentations that seamlessly integrate video, graphics and different views.

    Quickstart Virtual Presentations

    Switching to virtual presentations isn't as simple as sitting in front of your laptop and delivering the same speech you would have given on the main stage. While you don't need to build a full production studio in your home, there are a few investments you should make to ensure you stand out and impress your audience. This week, Dave Bricker, MFA, the author of Speak Inside the Box, is on the show to discuss the basics of what will help you stand out on the virtual stage.

    Setting up basic lighting for virtual presentations is simple, but how do you make sure you really stand out? Should you use a green screen or just your office?

Speaker and photographer Jeffrey Shaw is with us this week sharing how you can set up your ideal background for your online engagements (and to encourage you to stop using the built-in virtual backgrounds).
