MOVING FROM ROOM TO ZOOM:

Meetings and Presentations in a Post-Pandemic Environment

How teams engage in the current- and post-pandemic environment will be strikingly unlike how we’ve operated previously. Teams already are connecting in new ways and will need to improve how they engage and communicate in a two-dimensional “virtual” environment.

Moving a program, meeting, or conference, from in-person to online is not as simple as standing in front of your laptop camera and talking. The right strategy, skills and approach make all the difference.

MarketPoint’s team offers customized online presentation training tailored to your organization’s specific meeting and presentation needs. Programs can be designed to address multiple aspects of virtual communications – from getting comfortable and understanding how to connect with your audience when in front of the camera to strengthening presentation skills for sales pitches or other types of ideation, problem-solving or project meetings. Our experts bring more than 30 years of experience in communications and television.

Make Online Presentations a Competitive Advantage for Your Organization:

  • Reproducible strategies for developing and delivering presentations online
  • The ability to create audience engagement, not fatigue
  • High-levels of comfort and confidence in your team
  • Connections that help you more effectively communicate your point

Testimonials

MarketPoint worked with us to create a comprehensive outreach strategy in support of the development and rollout of a new Streamside Assistance Program. Not only did they help us understand the needs of our market through market research and build an integrated communications plan, they encouraged us to carefully define the program’s goals and provided a disciplined approach that ensured we met them. In fact, we exceeded them in some areas.

MarketPoint brings a combination of knowledge and perspective; they advise based on research; they listen, communicate and collaborate. Their strategies and creative work are grounded in research. They educate as they advise but also listen carefully to me and to my internal clients and stakeholders. They are true partners who have gained the respect of our alumni, faculty, institutional leaders, students, and employers.

We didn’t have the internal resources to create the messaging and execute it properly. MarketPoint helped guide us through the process by engaging us in working sessions, identifying key issues and developing talking points to ensure our messaging was tight and our external communications were clear, concise and consistent across the board.

MarketPoint’s suggestions…serve as a solid guideline for refining our message and tactics to more effectively reach our target audiences. They’ve also enabled us to prioritize and implement them internally.
