We are living in the digital age.
Especially with the current global situation, more and more people are starting to work remotely from home. This means an increase in video calls and communication via devices. So, how do we maintain human connections and presence on video? How do we replicate in-person interactions when we are sitting at home, looking into a lens?
Jessica Chen, our CEO and Founder, stresses the importance of energy and presence on video.
Most of us get our energy from the people who are around us, but with video and telephone conferencing becoming more prevalent, we simply do not have that anymore. So, to engage your viewers, you must be conscious of the energy you are projecting. The information you are presenting is still being consumed by another person, “another human being who is receptive of other people’s energy.”
People who are more energetic and enthusiastic on video, not only can hold the viewer’s attention longer, but people are also more likely to gravitate towards their ideas. Addtionally, the use of body language and other strategic communications skills can boost the mood during video calls.
It’s not easy to conjure the energy when speaking to a device but knowing that it can elevate your presence on video and hook the audience in should make it a priority.
You want to be the person who can project that energy when speaking.
