Do you remember the last time you had to give a presentation for work? Do you think you could have done a better job? No worries, you are not alone.
Public speaking is not easy and in our current reality even less so. Not only do we have to overcome issues like bad wi-fi or unexpected household noises, but we also need to talk to the camera naturally while still delivering our message. It’s exhausting.
Nevertheless, there are lots of resources to help you become a better speaker and virtual presenter. One of them is Toastmasters. A global organization with the mission to help individuals improve their communication and leadership skills. My friend Zoraida Martinez has been a Toastmasters member and club officer for years and spoke to us about how it has helped her as well as her process to deliver memorable virtual presentations. All the way from crafting a compelling story to practicing a great call to action.
