Think speaking online is the same as speaking in-person? Think again! Leading a webinar or online meeting is far more than simply uploading your in-person content to the web. In many ways, these online interactions are more nuanced than in-person events and require careful attention. That’s where your webinar facilitator coach comes in. Think of it as public speaking coaching….just…for an online “public.”
Webinars are a microscope of your speaking. Check out this clip to see what I mean.
How does virtual public speaking coaching work?
I use a similar approach to helping people lead webinars as I do for helping people with their in-person speaking. During our first meeting, I ask that you prepare a few minutes of a webinar or online training that you’ve given in the past or plan to give in the future. If you don’t have this, I can provide it, but I find it helpful to use something REAL to your life as a starting point to ensure we stay relevant. From there, I assess your speaking strengths and weaknesses and you leave our first meeting with concrete, actionable suggestions to make you a strong webinar and virtual speaking. After that, we can meet as frequently or infrequently as you’d like.
How much does virtual public speaking coaching cost?
I know that others are charging thousands of dollars for one on one coaching. Ug, maybe I should too. I just can’t bring myself to do it. I charge $100-$150 per hour depending on what you’re looking to accomplish and how much background research I’ll need to do to help you on your particular area of expertise. I offer a per-person discount if several members of your team would like to receive small group coaching together. Let’s chat about that EmilySchwartzSpeaks@gmail.com
Why is virtual public speaking coaching important?
Even if you’re an EXCELLENT in-person speaker, virtual speaking requires a higher level of engagement and relevancy to command someone’s attention. It actually isn’t super difficult, you just can’t waste your time focusing on the wrong things.
