SEASON: 2 EPISODE: 4
Whether you’re presenting training programs, team meetings, or a sales pitch, you can present like a pro, deal with technological glitches, appear calm under pressure, and deliver value packed virtual presentations.
If you want to learn how to make your online meetings as engaging as in-person you’re going to learn some helpful strategies and tactics in my conversation with Diane Windingland.
Diane Windingland, owner of Virtual Speech Coach and the author of several books on communication skills, was originally trained as an engineer. Since 2011 she has been speaking for organizations that want to help their people have better, more profitable conversations and presentations. She also coaches subject matter experts on how to communicate with clarity and confidence, shaping what they know into communications that engage and get results.
Diane lives with her husband in Shoreview, MN and dedicates much of her spare time as a volunteer for Toastmasters International, an organization that empowers people to be better leaders and communicators.
