As an experienced presenter you are used to owning the room, you work the crowd and confidently deliver your content. You engage with your audience and inspire them to learn.
You have a personal toolbox stuffed full of techniques: vocal skills, body language, questioning skills, an ability to read the room, just the right explanation for each moment.
You are a highly capable presenter who is passionate about your subject and cares about your audience.
Then your world was turned upside down.
You were forced to go virtual.
You’re asked to simply deliver the same content but remotely, via your laptop. You’re told it will be alright. That whatever you do people will be grateful you showed up.
You make the hugest effort and get yourself on camera. But it's not the same.
People are grateful, at least at first.
It is OK, no one laughs at you or calls you out.
But then you detect a shift, an expectation that you will deliver to a higher standard now. Only you don’t know how and instead you feel your credibility is being diminished.
You feel personally diminished. You no longer stand on a podium but instead inhibit a camera lens that may project you as a postage stamp or the size of a binder but never life size.
You miss the people in the room. There is no opportunity to build rapport.
You struggle with the technology and even when it goes right you feel it was more by luck than judgement. Focusing on the technology leaves you delivering a stilted performance.
You are too occupied simply coping to enjoy the experience.
At nights you wonder about the damage this will do to your long term career prospects and personal brand. Will you ever recover from this slow burning humiliation?
Imagine again feeling connected to your audience. Understanding the technology as simply a different location with its own quirks but completely within your power to mold and control.
Being able to quickly adjust when things don’t go by the script, just as you used to do during your in person presentations.
You’re energized because you know your audience values your presentation. They are interested, engaged and above all impressed.
You feel like you have magical powers as you glide across the technical challenges. You have got your flow back!
Your audience is not only impressed with your delivery, they are learning more and connecting with each other more. You are again having a positive impact on people's lives.
Your network is broadening. Your reach is expanding. Your reputation is soaring.
You are excited to deliver virtual sessions and appreciate the flexibility this new opportunity offers you. Less travel time, more personal time.
You are excited to be at the top of your game professionally and have extra time in your life to do all those things that are precious to you beyond work.
And all the while you are reaching people and helping them; doing the great work you were meant to do.
You no longer enjoy giving presentations because of the stress involved in managing the technology
Your evaluation scores have been reduced and you no longer feel valued by your audience
You have started turning down opportunities to speak
You are embarrassed by your inability to rock this virtual world
You keep hoping for a return to how things used to be, but secretly you know you are missing out on this exciting new virtual world and normal will never be the same again.
I’m a learning strategist who helps highly competent presenters and educators (like you) confidently take their in person delivery into the virtual world.
I work with people who are used to engaging their audience and owning the room but they fear the technology and personal distance are diminishing their credibility.
I give them tools and strategies so they can relax about adapting to the virtual space. With less time spent stressing and increased confidence they can focus on what they do best - delivering great content and being an acknowledged expert in their field.
As a result of this program:
You’ll know what tools and techniques to use to engage your audience.
You’ll have clear guidelines on how to manage the risks of delivering a virtual presentation, what you can manage and what you can manage around.
You’ll be able to modify the design of your presentation to ensure it is boosted by the virtual environment not diminished.
You’ll have increased confidence and will regain your joy of presenting, your credibility will increase and your reputation will be enhanced.
This comes in two parts.
The first is a quick and simple questionnaire that will get us clear on the landscape of your presentation needs.
The second, optional step, is you submitting a 3 minute video introducing yourself and a topic you might typically present.
Completing these steps will ensure we are able to quickly focus on the real challenges during our next step. That way we can go deeper, faster!
This is a live 1 hour private consultation to identify your individual Virtual presentation needs. The session will be recorded so you can refer back to it.
We’ll discuss all the facets of a successful presentation and equip you with customized practical recommendations and easy to implement tools.
By the end of the session you will receive your own focused list of 5 key elements for improvement and an activation guide on how to implement them.
This means you’ll know where to focus your efforts to have the most impact. No more second guessing yourself or missing out on key techniques.
You'll gain clarity on what you are already doing well and how to amplify, plus identify those elements you’re missing and need to develop.
Practical. Actionable. Individual.
Making the most of your time and talents.
This 30 minute debrief consultation comes either 20 days after your Consult or after your next presentation - which ever happens sooner.
We will use it to review the lessons you learned and the progress you made.
IF you chose to submit a video of your presentation (optional), we'll also review that during this meeting.
We’ll then map out ideas for future enhancements so you can build on your success and go from strength to strength.
Yes, really, you can finally become the virtual presenter you know you can be. The world needs your message and I can help you get it out there loud, clear and with confidence.
Together we’ll plan your personal growth plan and make this a reality.
Imagine how it will feel in less than a month from now when you have made this change happen!

I've had the privilege of working closely with Andi on many virtual workshops. She is the best I know in engaging others virtually and maintaining a highly interactive, fun and impactful virtual learning environment. Behind the scenes, Andi excels in partnering with others to visualize and shape a concept to which she applies strong design skills and creative problem solving to create an approach that meets the needs of a diversity of learning styles.
Working with Andi allowed me to focus on what I do best during my virtual event and rest easy knowing that all of the technical details were cared for. I especially appreciated how Andi jumped in and was quickly able to understand my goals and help me fill in the gaps. She was proactive, paid attention to detail, and added so much value to my event. The event was a huge success--my client was thrilled with the results and I was too. I highly recommend working with Andi!
When it comes to creating a first class virtual learning experience Andi is as good as it gets! I’ve had the fortune of working with Andi and witnessed first-hand her passion and expertise come to life when working with clients, and designing and delivering virtual learning solutions. Her working knowledge of learning principles, group dynamics and virtual learning platforms runs deep, and underlies a consultative approach that hones in on clearly understanding the client’s needs and collaboratively designing a learning solution that creates a highly engaging, impactful and result-driven learning experiences
Andi is a fantastic thought partner and guide. She has used a combination of her wealth of knowledge about creating strong learning experiences, a knack for sharing just the right resource (be it an article or video or author), and really "sticky" metaphors or imagery to coach me to be a better leader for our program team. She is able to understand our needs/vision, and pinpoint the exact moment or action to take that helps take our training or student experience to the next level.
At a time when our school's faculty was adjusting to teaching through distance learning, Andi provided the guidance and wisdom to help us prosper. Andi's advice was always spot on - and she delivered her instruction and support in a way that left us feeling calm and confident.
Navigating the Virtual world isn't easy and without a guiding hand one can get hopelessly lost. With the guidance and support of Andi Dickens, I realized how easy my tasks really were when I took over the production reins. Thank you Andi!
Andi’s “Virtually Fabulous” session offered great tips for preparing for online meetings, how to engage your audience whether large or small and how using various forms of interactions can result in a more effective meeting. The session allowed plenty of time of questions and provided opportunities to connect with and learn from the other participants. Highly recommended.
Andi, is the real deal she know her stuff and delivers. Since our world had become mostly all virtual this training is a must have. It’s helped me to level up my virtual training skills which means more people attending, more engagement while on the call that ultimately leads to turning prospects into paying clients. Aside from the business benefits Andi has a great personality, she cares and is super easy to work with. I highly recommend her training and any collaboration opportunities you may have to work along side her, she always bring her A-game.
