During your presentation
Great! You’ve done all your preparation, and now you’re on-air! Viewers watch live events because they want to learn or understand the presenters thinking process, problem-solving approach, strategy, or to learn something new. That brings us to the next tips to use during your event:
Start using the Virtual Teleprompter so you can avoid trying to memorise notes, minimise stress, anxiety and feel confident.
If you need to share your screen or presentation we strongly suggest sharing a specific app. This tip is crucial if you have multiple windows open. For instance if you need to share a PowerPoint presentation to your audience and use the Virtual Teleprompter.
In order to share a specific app you need to select the option that says "share an application" rather than "share screen". When you share an application i.e. PowerPoint, only the Powerpoint application will be shared to attendees regardless of whatever else you have on screen at the time.
In the Webex screenshot below you can see the different sharing options are Screen 1, Screen 2, and all the individual apps that you have open. If you are only intending to share a PowerPoint presentation then the strong recommendation is to share the Powerpoint app itself (not the entire screen i.e screen 1). In general, sharing the app also sends through a better quality image to the attendees and it also avoids any other content being shown by accident like chat messages, pop-up reminders, teleprompters etc.
This will allow you to share the PowerPoint and not be worried about other applications being shared by accident.
Detailed instructions for screen sharing can be found on the respective support pages:
Webex screen sharing - Webex support page.
Zoom screen sharing - Zoom support page.
Microsoft Teams screen sharing - Microsoft support page.
