By Judith Humphrey, Author and leadership communications speaker
Today leaders have a new challenge: reaching teams and partners who work remotely and speaking to them in such a way that they feel engaged and inspired. Meeting this challenge requires a new set of communication skills that this session will explore. Choosing the best medium for communicating is only the beginning. A speaker must also set the “stage,” develop the right kind of script, speak with a strong presence, shun slides that can act as a barrier between speaker and audience, and deliver in an interactive and audience-centered way (even though the audience is not in the room). The goal should be to overcome the “distance” created by the digital divide, and turn others into believers.
