Frequently asked questions
Q: Firstly, can presentation skills be learned online?
A: Yes they most definitely can, and very effectively.
Q: What is the course duration?
A: 4 days on consecutive afternoons. You should bring a pre-prepared 4 minute presentation to deliver on course (no slides needed).
Q: Is there a downside to attending a virtual course rather than in a classroom?
A: The downside is that you do not have an “in person” audience with you in the same room and therefore the networking element may be affected.
Q: Are there “upsides” if any?
A: There are several major advantages to an online video course:
- Travel time is eliminated – you save time and transport costs
- Much less classroom time
- Cost efficient as no venue and catering costs – savings are passed on to the client / delegate
- Larger or smaller groups can be accommodated
- No group work – you submit your own recorded presentations for review.
- You also learn how to present online, in addition to presenting to an “in person” audience, so you get 2 courses rolled into one.
Q: Will there be a facilitator? (is it live or pre-recorded?)
A: Yes, the course is “live” and there will be an experienced facilitator with the class for the duration of each session.
Q: How do my own presentations get evaluated.
A: You record yourself delivering a presentation using your video camera on your phone and you send it to us (Dropbox or WeTransfer). We will evaluate the recording a provide you with one-on-one feedback via Zoom. The 2nd presentation is live on Zoom with the rest of the delegates as your audience.
Q: Do I get a physical manual?
A: Yes, this will be couriered to you as part of your course fee once payment is received.
Q: Do I still get a certificate?
A: Yes, upon completion of the course you receive a virtual PDF certificate of attendance with your name spelled as you sent it to us.
Q: Do I still get pre-work to do prior to the course starting.
A: Yes, those delegates fully registered and paid will be given pre-work to view prior to the commencement of the course.
