Virtual Presentation Skills for Attorneys


As remote work and virtual communications continue into 2021, our ability to communicate in a virtual environment is an important professional skill for attorneys. We want to deliver a clear and concise message, whether we’re leading a meeting, speaking in a virtual courtroom, or presenting at a conference. 

Led by Mimi Bliss of Bliss Communications, an experienced TV reporter and executive presentation skills coach, this interactive virtual workshop will focus on the core skills needed for effective virtual meetings and presentations. We’ll cover how to:

Speak On Camera. Techniques for lighting, background, gestures, eye contact and voice.

Sharpen Your Message. Attention spans are shorter in virtual meetings. We’ll focus on how to connect with your audience with your first sentence, reduce filler words, and communicate more information in less time. 

Engage Your Audience. “Block” your information, be an active facilitator, and use tech tools like White Board, Polling and Breakout Rooms to improve interaction in virtual meetings.

Very practical and useful tips - thank you!

Tips on background, lighting, and presenting on camera, as well as how to incorporate images and video into presentations were useful and helpful.

This is one of the best presentations I've seen this year. Bravo.

Excellent, all presenters should watch this first

Mimi Bliss is one of my favorite presenters and I loved her tips for zoom meetings - very appropriate at this point in time.

Excellent overview and framework on how to do engaging virtual presentations.

Wonderful presentation! I learned so much about technology- how to use it to my advantage and not be afraid of it. My presentations will be much better going forward!

This CLE offered very good advice and tips for conducting client meetings and court appearances via video conferencing.
