Become a Virtual Interview Virtuoso

In early 2020, proficiency in technology-mediated communication was optional; today, it is essential for connecting with colleagues, clients, and stakeholders who are located in another part of the city, state, country, or world.  During this session, Christine Clapp from Spoken with Authority will share expert tips on crafting content, encouraging engagement, technology etiquette, and speaking style that will dramatically improve your ability to plan, prepare, and deliver effective online interviews and presentations.

Learning Objectives:
– Identify ways to adapt agendas for virtual interviews
– Explore strategies for optimizing videoconference platforms
– Review etiquette of online interviews, meetings, and presentations
– Learn to translate professional presence to technology-mediated communication
