How to present remotely – YouTube

I’ve been publicly speaking for over three years now and over that time I’ve learnt through a lot of trial and error, and guidance from peers. In 2020 everything change and public speaking suddenly became remote and behind a webcam. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to over 30 different groups this year remotely and I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learnt along that journey.
