It’s time to get past any story you’ve told about the limits of technology – and become confident at connecting deeply – even through the screen.
Look, I get it – in a world full of Zoom meetings, video interviews, and video content – it’s easy to feel like you’re just not one of “those” people.
You know, the ones who are natural on camera – they look bright, sound smooth, and somehow always appear at the most flattering angle…
Not you – you think your voice sounds weird, you never know what to say, you click the wrong buttons, and you’re just not good at navigating the technology.
(Let’s tell the truth – awkwardness on Zoom is a pandemic of its own, at this point!)
Or maybe you feel fine feeling your way around the Zoom app – but you default to camera OFF mode, for fear of being seen not looking your best. You’re there, but you don’t feel you look “ready.”
Or maybe you settle for an average, dimly lit angle, and you DO hop on video… but then when you’re called on, you just don’t know what to say. You stumble and stare at yourself, feeling self-conscious and awkward at best, and unprepared or embarrassed at worst.
The truth is – no one’s naturally great on camera. It takes practice.
Confidence on Zoom is designed to give you everything you need to be at ease with the technology – and ready to speak and present yourself beautifully in the age of video calling.
In this course, you’ll learn how to:
•Confidently present yourself for any on-camera meeting or video interview!
•Undo sneaky, negative thoughts that perpetuate insecurity about being seen.
•Make sure your brand and signature voice comes through – even on video conference calls!
•Build more confidence in your public speaking and presentation skills.
•Connect your business goals to the evolution of remote learning and Zoom technology.
•Find out the best camera, lighting, and sound/microphone basics for video events!
•Make your background tell the story of who you are – express yourself with the best camera set-up.
•How to connect with an audience AS IF you’re still in-person, or in-the-room with them.
•Feel comfortable making a great first impression while navigating Zoom technology effortlessly!
And if this past year has taught us anything – it’s that we have to be good at adapting the way we work, collaborate, and speak to be effective from a distance.
I’m Alexa Fischer, and I’m a best-selling Udemy instructor with over 114,000 students around the globe. I’m also a former actress who has appeared in roles on top TV shows like NCIS, CSI, and Bones (as well as too many commercials to mention). I took my love of people and became a confidence coach, appearing on The Today Show as well as the stages of major corporations like Sony and IBM, working with executives from Pepsico, Google, and Trader Joes. For the last few years, I’ve been busy building my latest creation – Wishbeads – intentional jewelry to help make your deepest wishes come true.
In other words, I know what it takes to put in the work, learn new things, and shine brightly. I’ve done it and I can teach you how to do it too!
By the end of this course, you’ll know how to navigate the app with confidence without losing your train of thought – and how to dress and arrange your on-camera space for an on-brand, bright presentation that looks hi-definition and professional.
You’ll be armed with the right information about hosting meetings, sending invitations, optimizing your audio and lighting. And I know that once we’ve gone over the basics of equipment and how to look and feel prepared, you’ll actually be able to network on the platform.
You might even have ideas for how to use it to optimize business opportunities from the comfort of your own home – without feeling technologically clueless – and we’ll talk about that too.
It’s crucial that you get the technological details squared away – then you can relax and be at ease on camera.
And I’ve got news for you – the video calling era is really just beginning.
How do you make your background look professional and clean? How can you put your logo or business name on the screen? And how do you avoid the upward, unflattering angle we’re seeing everywhere? You need to know – and after this set of lessons, you’ll be ready.
You can be engaging and yes, even “connected” – on Zoom. Virtual environments are different, but they can still bring people together – and you can still find ways to really impact the people you work with and speak to, and you can find ways to be yourself!
I’m here to guide you through the discomfort of “Zoom fatigue” and more – so you can learn to be at ease, empowered, and – perhaps most importantly – excited to be yourself on camera. See you in class!
