How do you run virtual calls? Are you pretty good at it? How is your team? Boy, sometimes they can be such a struggle.
All too often we find ourselves in a call wondering…
✅ What are we going to DO in the next 30 or 60 min?
✅ Is it important for ME to be here?
✅ What if I get asked a question in front of the stakeholders and I sound like an idiot?
✅ Does anyone really care what my background is behind me, or lighting?
✅ Can we please. just. get. to. the. point.
I’ve been given some lofty tasks by CEOs:
❌ “Cindy, can you make him stop looking down all the time? All we see is the top of his head.”
❌ “He touches his face too much, can you tell him that? And she twirls her hair when she’s nervous.”
❌ “They need to stop the wandering eye to other screen monitors.”
So yeah, nothing really surprises me anymore. I’m starting to feel like Batman in Gotham City, flying in to save the people from themselves.
This month we’ll give 2 masterclasses for clients on the topic, “Mastering Executive Presence in a Virtual World.”
It matters not what your level is. From mid- and C-level execs to startup founders and VC Fund Managers in Africa and New Zealand who pitch LPs. They ALL need help running great calls that count.
Run calls that count.
