Do you worry that you’re making a bad impression in your virtual meetings?

Does being seen on screen fill you with dread?

Would you like to appear more confident?

Showing up on-screen involves more than clicking the link.

The new norm for communication requires you to think strategically about online presence. If you aren’t prepared to present yourself professionally on the “Stage of Zoom,” you may find yourself left behind.

Edith Barnard, BA, MA, created this six-session series using her years of experience in theater, 1-1 confidence coaching, and vocal expertise. Business professionals, performers, doctors, lawyers, engineers, artists, and people wanting to power up their confidence all have benefited from Edith's training.

Please note there are six one-hour one-on-one VIP virtual sessions in each package. Choices are Monday or Wednesday with sessions beginning at 12:30pm, 1:45pm, 3:00pm, and 4:30pm. There will be no refunds. If you have any scheduling challenges, please discuss with Edith so another date can be worked out.

Not only will you learn how to avoid Zoom mistakes that may make you look foolish, but you will deepen your self-confidence, and learn how to properly use your voice, posture, and non-verbal expressions.

Also, you will discover how to “set the Stage of Zoom,” using effective lighting, selecting a pleasing backdrop, polishing your appearance, and other important stagecraft strategies.

Most importantly, Edith will help you feel comfortable in your own skin. You will learn to shake your shyness and shine.

Style is being yourself on purpose.

You will meet 1-1 with Edith to tailor your stage presence and receive exactly what you need to be fabulous on the “Stage of Zoom.”

This is so much more than a “tips and tricks” class for on-screen meetings. Over the course of six weeks, Edith will help you become the strong and confident person you have always wanted to be.
