Table of Contents

    Your education did not teach you how to be a great speaker in zoom. Yet, we all have to deal with this blue-colored icon that boomed when the pandemic hit us.

    Nearly, every seminar, public meeting, and marriage is operated through zoom video conferencing these days. The most challenging scenario is for the public speakers. They are addicted to having feedback and applause. Hence, they find the virtual reality of Zoom challenging. To make your world easy here, are tips to be a great speaker in ZOOM.

    • Set your Background - There's not much you can do about the feeling you have on stage. Well, to create a positive and clear mindset for your audience, a tidy background should be a must. You want an image of confident expertise. It will make a professional impression.
    • Use engaging prompts: Zoom meetings have just the right prompt features for you. For example, you can ask people to raise their hands if there's a suggestion or question. In addition, the chat feature in the application can work wonders. Annotation, polling are some other collaborations you can use.
    • Share Videos and photos - Just to give the Zoom webinar a public speaking experience, share the videos and PPT slides regarding the topic. A great public speaker can provide visual presentations. Don't let zoom ruin that ability for you.
    • Gallery view - Whenever you are delivering your speech, use the 'Gallery view' to see the audience's response. If you want to gain confidence, pin an audience that reacts appropriately to your expectations.
    • Deliver your speech sitting down: Sitting down and delivering a speech can be your best option. You might want to slide in through a presentation, mute your audience or play with other features. Staying close to your system becomes a necessity.
    • Eye contact in zoom - Set your camera at eye level and your mic at a healthy distance. You can even consider looking at the camera, imagining it to be the audience. All you need to convey is a distant environment yet intimate.
    • Never read out from the Doc - It is one of those things when you feel it's not been seen, but the audience knows it all. Also, the articulation when you prepare and speak is unmatched.
    • Light, sound, and camera - Place your camera in an excellent position for the audience's eyes. You can use ring lights, elevated external microphones, and an outstanding external camera.

    Remember, yоu’ve been сhоsen tо dо this speech in public fоr а reаsоn. The аudienсe trusts thаt yоu, the exрert, knоws whаt yоu’re dоing.

Yоu are yоu, аnd yоu’ve still gоt this.
