Video Replay: Guest Speaker from Zoom at Online Presenters Toastmasters

One of the most valuable things we learn in Toastmasters is how to recover when things go wrong in a presentation or meeting, and Online Presenters in particular will teach you how to recover from tech problems that crop up from time to time — as happened in our most recent meeting.

After our guest speaker, Joshua Jones from Zoom, had problems signing into our meeting, we wound up having to adjourn and reconvene in a meeting he hosted for us. That reconvened meeting is what I’m sharing below.

I know we lost a few participants along the way, and others couldn’t stay for the Q&A (which stretched beyond our normal end time). So let’s be thankful for the replay! Feel free to share this with others who might be interested. Lots of great info here, particularly on how to avoid having audio problems undermine your video presentation.
