Being Brilliant on Zoom
“Ginger conducted an inspired training session with 50 of Australia’s very best musicians to give them tools on how to best interact with audiences over Zoom Webinar. Ginger was wonderful in tailoring her advice to the specific circumstances that our musicians were facing. Ginger passed on invaluable tools on how to engage audiences who can’t be seen, as well as some tips on how to visual present oneself to maximise the audiences online experience.”
Everything has changed since Covid-19. Right now, the majority of our media interviews and work presentations are being done on the small screen.
Let’s face it. We’re looking down the barrel of months–maybe a year or more–of Zoom webinars, seminars, online forums: even your average team meeting is now online.
How often have you yourself watching an expert speaker on Zoom in a, *cough* let’s say, very unflattering pose? Oftentimes the person is looking down – so they may have a double chin and/or you can see up their nose! The lighting is terrible and there’s a vacuum cleaner behind them. And what’s more, the sound quality is dire., We’re here to solve all those problems.
Presenting well via video programs like Zoom or Skype while coming across as relaxed and authentic doesn’t just happen by chance. It requires a set of skills – and a smattering of background information – that anyone can acquire.
If you want to be confident and at ease once you’re actually IN the hotseat: we can help.
What you will learn

Together, Sue and Ginger come with more than 40 years of experience at leading media and comms brands. ABC. Fairfax. News.com.au. CNN. Vogue. You name the outlet; we’ve interviewed hundreds of people for them. We also get paid to moderate panels, give talks, and are regularly asked to speak to journalists.
