Effective communication for remote wo...
Whether you're presenting, hosting or a participant in a meeting, communication skills are vital, and working from home means that this skill needs to be used differently...
The sudden use of remote platforms to communicate with colleagues and customers may have seemed like a scary and unwelcome intrusion into the working day for many; with even seasoned professionals having to acquire new skills in order to be effective.
Social distancing may mean that peoples' work patterns are changing, many have now discovered the benefits of working from home in terms of improved productivity, reduced commuting and overall better work life balance. But there is still a crucial need to maintain effective communication with colleagues and customers.
The session is aimed at anyone who communicates with clients and/or colleagues, whether presenting formally, hosting, or as a participant in a meeting. During the session we will address how the working world is changing and will potentially remain changed as a result of COVID-19, what this means for businesses, both in terms of the risks and opportunities that this 'new world' enables.
Obviously, remote presentations and meetings make the connection between host and audience harder to establish, they call for a different approach and some new skills. There's no direct eye contact, you can't walk around to keep a sense of movement and dynamism, in fact, you will most likely be sitting down rather than standing! How do you keep your audience engaged under those circumstances? This informative session will cover:
- Top level remote communication platforms
- Promoting / increasing awareness an event - especially for external communication
- How is communicating effectively when operating remotely the same and / or different to being face to face
- What should all effective communication include
- The benefits of operating remotely
- Basic good practice techniques for effective communication when operating remotely
Becoming comfortable with remote communication is now an essential skill, and guests will come away with a heightened confidence to do so effectively.
