While unprecedented circumstances related to COVID-19 have forced companies and the event industry as a whole to pause, step back, pivot, and make remarkable changes in the short term, there is no doubt the power of connection and community will prevail.
According to www.eventmarketer.com 87% of event marketers said they have canceled—and 66% have postponed—events as a result of COVID-19. 93% of event professionals plan to invest in virtual events moving forward. The event format is changing, but the goals remain the same: networking, information and retention.
The massive shift to online conferences highlighted the urgent need for event organizers to find speakers who can deliver their content remotely.
eSpeakers was quick to answer this need by creating their Virtual Presenter Certification which is a test of a presenter’s equipment, environment, and skill using remote presentation tools. Speakers are tested for:
– Solid equipment setup
– Presentation background environment free of distraction
– Internet connection speed and quality
– Ability to recover from disconnection and return quickly
– Good use of visual aids
Each certification provides a “virtual proof” video so event organizers can see the presenter using the tools.
The Certified Virtual Presenter standard has support from leading industry organizations:
– Meeting Professionals International
– Smart Meetings
– Senior Planners Industry Network
