Speaking on Zoom
The Zoom meeting looks like it’s here to stay.
So, how can we best adapt our public speaking and presentation skills to this new two-dimensional online environment?
Even though you’re communicating remotely, your delivery can still have the same energy and enthusiasm as it does face-to-face.
First, to give you the best opportunity to get your message across, there are some critical technical and physical factors to be taken into account, such as lighting, positioning and background, which can make a decisive difference to the impression that you make.
And when it comes to your performance, learning how to boost and amplify your on-screen presence, despite the limitations, will make your presentation memorable and effective.

Simple but effective
“Carrie was able to identify all the weak points in my pronunciation, develop a systematic approach to improve them and find simple but effective ways of helping me achieve my goal.”

I am much more confident in my speech
“Carrie helped me understand what I was doing wrong and why. The exercises she gave me have corrected and improved my pronunciation greatly. How have things changed for me since? I am much more confident in my speech.”
Tim B, Account Manager
Easy to understand
“Carrie was very committed to improving my pronunciation, explaining everything in terms which were easy to understand, so I could practise on my own. She used practical methods to help me visualise my pronunciation issues and supported me in my attempts to produce ‘new’ sounds. Above all, she helped me realise that I was able to do it.”
Kleanthis K, Quality Engineer
