Exciting new chapter for Sjodin Communications - We are getting scrappy! 

Terri is now delivering "live" virtual speaking engagements and master class webinars from her home studio! (See picture above.)

Working from home and the adoption of and/or conversion to video meetings and sales calls now dance together hand-in-hand.  Whether we like it or not.  
Meeting remotely comes with both highs and lows. 
Highs: New technology can be fun, different, adds a layer of connection, and seeing people on a call is nice. It's also effective with existing relationships (maintaining and moving things forward), and when used right, it has a “wow” factor.
Lows: It is harder to create a connection virtually – especially with new prospects.  A below average or average presenter seems even more difficult to listen to on video/virtual platforms.  (Common comments include:  Ugh!  So boring, too long, waste of time.  What are they wearing?  What/Who is in the background?)
It does not have to be this way.

Whether speaking one-on-one, to a small group or on a video conferencing platform call (i.e.: MS Teams, Zoom, Google Hangouts etc.)... Presentation Skills matter. Most people have been "winging it" and doing the best they can as they navigate their way through the "secure-at-home" status of the pandemic. And that's okay... When you're ready to level up your team's virtual presentations skill set, we are here to help:

Last call to join the beta group!

Sjodin Communications is offering a new 4 Part “Live” Event Webinar Series done entirely online through your company's preferred platform!

Join renowned presentation coach Terri Sjodin for a series on the art of presenting to create influence!  The focus will be on developing verbal communication skills for greater impact with clients, whether virtually or in-person.  Terri will share ideas and data from her national research study on the State of Sales Presentations, including an overview of the 12 Biggest Presentation Mistakes people make and how to avoid them... which, by the way, are proving to be even more prevalent in virtual presentations!

The goal of this series is to start the conversation on “leveling up” your virtual presentations and adapt to the changing marketplace
