Please click on the video below to watch this Micro-Masterclass on “Live or on-camera presenting, what’s the difference?”.

In this video, we’re going to be looking at live and on-camera presenting. What’s the difference? Is there a difference?

Live presentation

These figures will blow you away.

Body language, nonverbal communication is worth fifty-five per cent of live communication.

The tone of your voice is worth thirty-eight per cent.

Only seven per cent is about what you say.

This is based on figures by Albert Mehrabian and it’s been replicated many many times since.

So if all these things aren’t working together it’s incongruent, it’s not going to work.

On camera presenting

If we translate that to the screen environment and assume that the words are only worth seven per cent, then what we need to focus on is you as the presenter and the visuals, the visual context in which you’re presenting.

So to make all these things work together you need to maximize your communication skills, your camera confidence and your visual vocabulary.

In the next masterclass, we will look at ‘Understanding the Medium of Video’.
