Virtual Communication Resources
The Case for improving virtual communication skills
Your career will largely be defined by how well you present in important meetings. In the current and future world of work, how well you present in important video meetings – will increasingly come to define your career.
You need to become a top performer in video meetings and interactions in the same way that you strive to become a top performer in face-to-face meetings and interactions.
You also need to develop skill in deciding when, where, with whom and on what topic/for what purpose, a virtual meeting will work best – versus a face-to-face meeting. Here is Michael’s blog post on this matter.
As of March 2020 Michael Kelly’s One-on-One training and group programmes are being conducted face-to-face or virtually, or conducted through a combination of face-to-face and virtual mediums.
The benefit of a virtual One-on-One or group programme is that by default, it sharpens participants’ virtual communication – which will serve them in any subsequent virtual interaction or meeting.
Michael is conducting on-going field research into how business interactions and meetings intersect with various communication mediums and/or mix of mediums – in order to foster optimal personal connection, communication, productivity and focus.
Michael offers all his One-on-One training and group workshops and keynote presentations in a face-to-face or virtual format. For example, his recently developed ‘How to Reshape your personal communication for a video conference world’ has been delivered virtually, and successfully for numerous clients.
Michael has developed a popular 10 module, 2 minute video learning programme, The Art of communication through video conferencing, Series One . This programme gives essential information for setting up a professional video conferencing environment, and on how to listen, speak and present yourself and your messages effectively through a video screen.
As well, since March 2020, Michael has transformed his office into a video studio.
