Q&A with Katerina Arzhayev, after her presentation from the Finding Ada Conference 2020.
Presenting virtually is nothing at all like being in a room with a ppt presentation. We no longer have the ability to control the experience our audience is getting, so how can we continue being effective and engaging presenters? In this talk, Katerina will present the best tips and tricks for intentionally using your face, body, and presentation content to make your point and get your audience as passionate as you are about the subject matter of your presentation.
