Years ago I was working as an advisor on an ITV comedy reality show, “Stand Up Great Britain.” My job was to work with newer comics and get them up to a certain standard so they didn’t burn and die live on TV. In those days that was considered a bad thing.
The following is a short excerpt from my book, "Virtual Presentation Master" - due out soon!
One of the biggest failings of virtual presenters is they don’t even try to use humour. The reasoning goes something like this: “It’s too hard. I can’t tell if they’re laughing because I can’t see or hear them. Therefore, I won’t do it.”
Result: dry, dry, dry presentations that kill the audience.
