How do you give effective presentations, even remotely?

The COVID crisis has forced us to multiply the number of remote presentations. How can we ensure that these presentations are adapted to the audience and that the key messages are clear? This is what we propose to consider in this course.



Preparing for and organize a remote meeting


Learning tips and tricks to ensure that a remote interview is as well structured as if it had been conducted in person:

listening to and understanding both parties; how to react in case of technical problems; etc.


Fully understanding the modes of communication and the rhythm of a remote relationship

(what works and the mistakes to avoid);


Taking into account psycho-social aspects:

the stress generated by an exceptional situation; the limit between private and professional life in remote working, etc.;


Giving and receiving feedback remotely.


  • Sub-group workshop on the pitfalls and difficulties of online evaluation. What are the differences between online and face-to-face interviews?
  • Individual work: writing the invitation to the virtual interview
  • Case study on a typical interview or interview role play (if possible)


  • A remote performance evaluation interview: differences and similarities with the face-to-face interview
  • Preparing for a remote interview:

+  Preparing in advance and ask the other person to prepare (even if virtual)

+  Communicating the format in advance length,  technical and ergonomic advice for the interview (time, light, isolation, etc.).

+  Preparing a visual support: sharing the objectives on screen in PPT

  • Conducting the interview

+ Reminder of the rules of operation

+  Using communication techniques adapted to

the virtual world:

+  Giving factual and clear feedback

  • Concluding the interview

+  Recapping

+  Filling in the form

+  Concluding with an informal discussion as you would in a classroom setting to revive the human aspect of the interview
