The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect.

Fursey Gotuaco‘s interactive workshop (replay below) was one of the highlights at the inagural VTM CON virtual conference this past December 5th.

His style was so engaging – we’ve invited him back to Online Presenters for Saturday, February 27th, 10 am Eastern for you to have a dynamic learning experience. The online meeting room will open at 9:30 for an informal meet-and-greet.

You’ll learn and practice tips to make your storytelling more vibrant, authentic and engaging in this 1.5 hour workshop.
