Online Speakers Training Series
Secrets Speakers Use to Create Exceptionally Engaging Virtual Presentations
Online presenting is quite different than in-person talks. Frequent in-person speakers who love to feed off the energy in the room, complain that it feels odd to be speaking into the virtual abyss. Virtual platforms can shake new and long-time speakers alike, making their presentations boring and dull.
Join Amanda Kaiser, a popular professional online speaker, to learn the secrets that make online presentations captivating and engaging. During this fun, fast-paced presentation, Amanda will take you behind the scenes of the virtual speaker’s journey from concept, to content, to chat. Whether you are speaking alone or with others, recording in advance, or presenting life, this session will provide you with a blueprint for creating a wildly engaging online presentation.
13 Secrets for Creating Exceptionally Engaging Virtual Meetings
Online meetings don’t have to be awkward or dull. Contrary to popular belief, virtual group meetings can be productive, collaborative, and ridiculously engaging.
The strategy is to reimagine the usual in-person agenda, energize participants differently, and use the tools to cultivate what the internet is best for – co-creation.
Join your colleagues as you engage in a fun, fast-paced demonstration with professional online speaker Amanda Kaiser. Explore how to host virtual chapter, committee, staff, and special interest group meetings for your members that are as engaging as in-person meetings on an interactive platform like Zoom with groups from 13 – 300 participants.
Praise for the 13 Secrets Series
Thank you so much for your webinar on virtual engagement. It was super helpful and confirming of the practices we’re doing and new ones to make it all even better! We’re moving a big conference online and this will help as we determine how to encourage networking. – Mary Beth Cowardin, Vice President Marketing & Member Engagement at AmericanHort
I thoroughly enjoyed your “13 Secrets to Help You Create an Insanely Engaging Virtual Meeting” today!!! Super engaging and informative!!!! – Christine Blair, Project Management Professional
We rely on direct person to person contact to create our sense of community. I felt like there was no chance that we could stay connected in a meaningful way when we had to go online. Amanda’s 13 Secrets session gave me hope that I could create online sessions that will be fun for our students and alums. My favorite tip was to use ice breakers in the zoom chat box while the host is getting everyone signed in – no more impatiently staring at the frantic host. – Jessica Taylor, Director, DiLella Center for Real Estate at Villanova University
Fueling Exceptional New Member Experiences: 3 New Strategies for Onboarding, Engagement, and Retention
Does your data tell you that your new members renew at a lower rate than other members? Have your retention metrics plateaued even though you are improving your renewal process? Do you wonder how to engage both new and long-time members even more?
Members think far differently about joining, engaging, and renewing than we do. While interviewing over 400 members, Amanda has learned that our membership process is not a year-long cycle in members’ minds. Instead, the decision to renew is profoundly influenced by their experience when they first join. Learn how associations, small to large, are successfully engaging all members by focusing far more on their newest members. These organizations provide their new members with a specific value and exceptional experiences, which cements engagement. Key insights from the research reveal how you can too.
Association Research Reveals the Stickiest New Member Engagement Programs
Do your new members renew at a far lower rate than other members of your association? If this is true, you are not alone, as new members tend to be the most at-risk members for associations.
Would you like to see how associations improved their new member renewal rates by 9.7%? Dynamic Benchmarking and Kaiser Insights LLC teamed up to conduct the New Member Engagement Study. The mixed-method research explores the new member onboarding, welcoming, and orientation habits of over 270 associations. The research revealed that no matter the type, size, or focus of your association, a new member engagement program can work for you!
In this session, we will share many new and exciting insights from the research, including the four strategies the best new member onboarding programs rely on. Participants will see which tactics work best along with implementation tips and leave with a step-by-step process you can bring back to the office.
Boost Member Engagement by Correctly Communicating Your Association’s Value
Some member groups are challenging to attract and engage. Delivering and communicating value wins our member’s hearts. Broken into three sections, this facilitated conversation will start with learning about Amanda’s research-backed Value Proposition Framework for developing messages that grab the attention of hard to influence groups.
Next, we will work with the framework in smaller groups experimenting together with each part of the process. During this fun, fast-paced session, there’s no pressure to be right, or even have a great answer, just keep the conversation moving. Finally, it is time for us to convert the framework input into engagement tactics for our members. Take home a bundle of strategies, tactics, and templates that you can start using tomorrow!
