Summary of Smart Videoconferencing
New Habits for Virtual Meetings
Want to shine at video conferences? Are you prepped? Does your technology work? Is your shirt clean? Smile, you’re on.
This is a concise, direct, very practical handbook for organizing a videoconference and communicating effectively on camera. The tips on organization, preparation and choosing the right medium for your meeting are especially helpful and new. Many tips, especially about grooming, makeup and clothing, are so simple they border on simplistic, but for those who have no experience in media or performing (such as corporate executives), these clues could make the difference between success and failure. Authors Janelle Barlow, Peta Peter and Lewis Barlow back up their pointers with real-life anecdotes which reinforce their ideas quite convincingly and provide the book its only real entertainment value; otherwise it’s relentlessly practical. getAbstract.com found this book useful for anyone who is organizing or participating in a videoconference. When you’re on the air, you want to be in the know.
In this summary, you will learn
- The uses and limitations of videoconferencing;
- How to conduct a videoconference;
- How to present yourself effectively on camera; and
- How to avoid common videoconferencing mistakes.
