Virtual Presentation Skills Training

Virtual Presentation Skills Training

Our Virtual Presentation Skills Training gives participants ideas on how to develop, as well as the opportunity to practice their skills. The new reality of working from home has required many people to present through their pc, laptop or phone. This workshop gives people the ideas to present virtually and professionally. This training is delivered by an experienced trainer who delivered his first virtual training session in 2010, which means you can benefit from that wealth of experience.

This workshop is highly interactive with participants engaged and involved throughout the session. You will be asked for your thoughts and views on each of the areas the workshop covers and there is time for discussion and practise. Simply tell us the learning outcomes you would like to achieve and we will design the workshop for you, so that you get the training you want.

How is our Virtual Presentation Skills Training delivered?

Our Virtual Presenting with Impact training is delivered via any online software which often results in our using either Zoom or Teams. We tend to use the client’s preferred software as we can work with any. Participants can be home based, or in the office. We’ve had participants from places all across the world, including Sydney, Hong Kong, Moscow, London, Washington, Bangkok, Rio de Janeiro, Warsaw, Shanghai and Singapore.

Virtual Workshop

Delivered in a workshop style, the session entails the presentation of ideas by the training consultant, fostering extensive discussion. Throughout the conversation, the focus remains on how the introduced ideas are applicable to individual participant situations and their specific needs, rendering the session notably relevant and beneficial.

The duration of the workshop can vary from 90 minutes to two and a half hours, depending on your requirements. Participants actively engage by posing questions and practicing skills, fostering a highly interactive and engaging environment.

The session comprehensively covers all aspects of virtual presentations, encompassing preparation, presentation construction, and personal impact. We thoroughly examine the utilization of voice, body language, and language, providing participants with ample opportunities for practice and discussion to ensure effective learning integration. Participants depart with a plethora of insights gleaned from this targeted workshop. Refer to the full agenda below and peruse our reviews to gauge participant feedback on our training sessions.

Optional follow up - Part 2 workshop

The optional follow-up session, Part 2, provides participants with the opportunity to practice the skills covered in Part 1 and receive professional feedback, enhancing the likelihood of applying their newfound skills.

In Part 2, the training group can be divided into smaller sub-groups of three, tailored to their needs, roles, or functional areas. These sessions may occur on the same or different day to allow for preparation and practice. Within the smaller virtual workshops, each participant presents to the group via video in 5 to 10-minute slots, receiving feedback. This process is repeated multiple times, fostering continuous development and learning. Feedback is provided by the training consultant and other participants. These smaller workshop groups typically last around 60 to 90 minutes, with each participant presenting for approximately 20 minutes, including feedback. Depending on individual needs and development requirements, participants may engage in multiple smaller group workshops.

One-to-One Coaching

If you choose the Part 2 session, we include one to one coaching for each participant. This happens between Part 1 and Part 2. Participants find this very useful in fine tuning their skills and presentation content.

Participants gain ideas to help their virtual presenting skills if they ask for individual feedback.

Individual Development Feedback

Each participant receives the feedback they require in a number of areas. Identifying areas which are strong and those which would benefit from development, forms part of this session.

When presenting, the participants look at the screen to see their slide content and at the same time they’re looking pretty much at the camera, so the feedback they get is very good when compared to presenting in the same room.

The training consultant gives each person specific feedback on their style and impact, to help them develop. This is done in a constructive and supportive style.

Each piece of feedback is accompanied by ideas on how to develop personal impact, which is tailored for the individual. This means that each person completes the training with individual specific actions to reflect on and implement.

Video, Voice, Value

We have developed a coaching checklist for you to use. It is a quick way to measure your impact in presenting.

Video means how you are looking and the visual impact you are creating.

Voice is about how clearly your message is received.

Value is about the quality, relevance and impact of your message. Put together and they predict the engagement of your audience.

More detail on each of these areas is explained below.

Delivery style

Feedback is given on the overall style of your presentation. Your impact and the overall impression you give. Does it appear that the presenter really knows their subject and inspires confidence?

Body Language

Body language can include use of hands and arms, facial expressions, movement and fiddling. It also includes eye contact, which is crucial when presenting via video.

Presentation Structure

Does the talk make sense in achieving its objective? Does the audience know where the presentation is going and reach a clear conclusion?

Slide Design

Are the slides coherent and do they make sense? Does each slide clearly make the point it is designed to do? Are the slides interesting and engaging?

Audience Engagement

Is the audience engaged from the start? Do they feel involved and is it made clear how the talk is of relevance to them?

How many participants can join Virtual Presentation Skills Training

In the last few years we have delivered this session for small groups of three people and larger groups of up to twenty people. We have even delivered it to one group of 120 people! The difference is the amount of personal interaction the time allows. But it does not mean there is any less impact, as you can still get a fabulous result no matter how large the group.

Virtual Presentation Skills Training - Duration

The workshop is typically run as a 90 minute to two hour session. If you choose a two hour session, this can be split into two one hour sessions. 

You can decide how long you would like the workshop to last. We will amend the content accordingly.

Technical Requirements

The technical requirements are simply the client’s chosen platform. We have found Zoom to be a reliable and simple option for participants from around the world.

If the participants wish to record their presentations and the feedback, they can do this by either recording the session in the application, or by using a smartphone. If they want to stand for their presentation and record, a microphone will help the sound qaulity.

Tailoring the course to your needs

We customize the training to align with your specific needs. Whether your focus is on sales, client update presentations, or enhancing confidence in virtual communication, simply inform us of your requirements, and we will adapt the workshop accordingly.

Pre Course

You have the option of sending each participant a pdf of the workshop agenda. Part of the agenda of the course is presenting to different work styles, or personalities. To help with this participants can complete the online personality questionnaire.  Click here to read more.

Virtual Presentation Skills Training
Our training is tailored to your needs through discussion with you and by using relevant examples.

Virtual Presentation Skills Training Agenda

The following areas are included in the training agenda, which can be adpated to suit your needs.


This area includes, how to structure the presentation and each section within it. The start, the content and the end. How to structure each slide. Planning your talk and the importance of a clear objective. This might mean you will decide to change the structure of your talk, in order to make it more effective.


What is actually going into your talk? What should be excluded can often be as important as what is included. Above all, getting the message right is vital. This is where careful preparation is key. That’s why we give you a simple but highly effective process to follow to help ensure you get your message right for your audience.

Slide Design

The look and layout of each slide can be vital. The use of bullets and images is reviewed and applied, so that each person gains ideas on their presentation. We do a separate session on this called pimp my slides.


In the training we demonstrate how to get engagement with your audience. In this way we walk the talk and it means you get to experience what great engagement is like. Take a look at our reviews to see how much previous participants appreciate this. This is such an important area that we go through many tips and ideas on how you can improve your engagement with your audience.


We are often asked about the number of slides that should be used and how many slides can be presented per minute. Getting the timing right is vital, as well as allowing for questions and discussion. On the one hand brevity can be appreciated, but on the other you need to give enough time to get your message across. That’s why we review your slides and content with you to strike the right balance.

Venue & Background

This is an often overlooked area, in that the organisation of the venue can make, or break a presentation. We discuss different backgrounds and the impact they can have with your audience. As a result, this gives you the tools to make the best choice for your objective.


Considering your audience and planning how you will engage with the audience is crucial. Relating your content to them will directly impact the results. Therefore, we give you a simple tool to analyse your audience and how to use this knowledge to prepare for your talk.


What you wear needs to support the premise of your presentation. If your talk is to promote your competence and knowledge, your clothes need to support this. The expectations of the audience are key here. In some markets and situations a suit is required, whereas in others a suit would send the wrong signals. This training gives you food for thought on the impact of your styling and what it says to your audience, in contracts to what you want to communicate.

Body Language

How you present yourself in eye contact, warmth of expression, hand movements and all other aspects of body language, needs to support your overall impact. That’s why we review every participants’ impact on screen. This means you get feedback from the trainer with ideas on how to improve how you come across to your audience.

Handling Questions

Like every other aspect of our virtual presentation skills training, handling questions is a skill. It can be learnt, practised and developed. Handling very difficult questions is part of this training. For example, you might be asked very technical questions, or you might be asked about things which are not part of your talk. This training gives you the strategies to handle any question confidently.


Some participants want to develop their voice, but most have not considered the impact their voice has on the overall impact of the presentation. Consequently this part of the training has many people particularly engaged.  The impact can be in slowing down, adding emphasis, making it clearer, and altering the overall pace. 


The choice of words is key, especialy for those who work in a technically complex area. We all have our work related language, but for some this can be particularly complex. Our observation is that the most intelligent people tend to use the simplest language to explain very complicated ideas. Therefore, it’s vital to review the words you use and explore how to present your ideas using simple language.

Telling a Story with your Presentation

Telling a story in your talk can make it highly impactful and engaging. We will show you how to do this with very simple structures and ideas. Using stories makes the virtual presentation skills training add real value to your technique and above all it gives you increased impact.
