Influencing from the small screen, what TEDx tips translate well over Zoom (or similar)

Virtual has changed how the speaking industry operates. Production quality for a session is now born by the speaker, not the organisation. The zoom honeymoon is over. It’s time to raise your virtual game. Those with engaging virtual sessions win.  If you feel confused and overwhelmed by technology then this session is for you. Video and virtual expert Julian Mather demystifies Ecamm for Mac users.  Is Ecamm right for me? What can I do with Ecamm? What else do I need? How much should I spend? Where can I get help?  This session for new users will take you from feeling left behind to feeling like you are back in the drivers seat of your speaking business.  Note: Ecamm is for Mac only. The concepts shared here will be valuable for PC users too.
