Presenting & Meeting via Video

Tom for Presenting on VideoThaler Pekar & Partners recently delivered a dual-location program in effective team video presentations for Wellspring Advisors. The session was interactive and lighthearted while pursuing the serious business of maintaining executive presence across a virtual system. Participants considered intra-group dynamics as both tele-presenters and meeting facilitators, with a focus on developing genuine rapport and collaboration between two different office spaces, and dealing with technical and interpersonal curveballs. Thaler and Jay simultaneously facilitated, with Jay in Wellspring’s NYC location, and Thaler in the organization’s DC office. As a result, participants committed to specific new behaviors and ground-rules, which were compiled and clarified in a post-program guide.
