    Zoom Like a Boss:

    Show Up Stronger Virtually

    Show up to empower and transform, although VIRTUALLY!

    Let's face it, everyone is speaking and training virtually, but you want to stand out and not sink into the crowd right?

    Join us as Marquesa Pettway— former CNN Associate Producer turned Business Reinvention Strategist & Professional Speaker —shows us how to Zoom Like a Boss!

    There are two keys this workshop will focus on: “Virtual Engagement & Zooming Like A Boss” - believe it or not, they are interchangeable.

    Change the Way You Show Up Virtually!

    Zoom is not just a let's talk, chat, and listen platform - it's a virtual stage and classroom.

    How can the Zoom platform become your most brilliant virtual classroom or stage?

    What is the right and wrong way to deliver your content?

    The Take-Aways:

    Zooming like a boss is about connection, engagement, leveraging the zoom tool and making the content sticky.

      • The Zoom Smart Virtual Classroom defined!
      • Understanding the mistakes which create disengaged participants.
      • Engaging the participants pre- and post- your event! This means everything.
      • The virtual connection (the good and bad).
      • The engagement process (it’s actually strategic).
      • Easy tools that make all the difference and that MOST people that zoom do not know about! These tools require a $2000 Zoom account unless you know Marquesa.
      • The five basics of a zoom production.

      Marquesa's clients pay her $10k - $20k for this information.
