Readable. Engaging. Informative. Fun. This is one tool that I can use on a regular basis for any size of on-line audience I present to. Roger gives easy to replicate strategies that I can put to use right away. Along with this, he highlights the issues that differentiate virtual presenting from other forms of presenting and gives tips for adjusting delivery styles. What a great resource!

The information in this book was good, but basic. Of course, everyone reading it has a different level of expertise. I would recommend it for people with begining webinar skills.

This is a great resource full of practical and actionable advice for presenting, meeting, and working in a virtual world. Great not only for those of us who are familiar with presenting online (but could use a bit of improvement) but also for those who are new to the discipline. Full of insight delivered in an accessible (and witty) style. I highly recommend!

Format: Paperback
This book is a quick read - I read it in one afternoon. If you've attended one of Roger's webinars, it is pretty much the same information. I plan to use it to explain to the "non-professional" presenter how to present virtually - just because one is knowledgeable about the subject matter does not mean they are a presenter. It provides the reason "why" I'm asking them to do it a certain way.

The only drawback, is the book isn't a visually pleasing as Roger's webinars are. However, it does follow the format - introduce, explain, and key take-away. I guess I would have liked the little cliparts to draw my attention better. Oh way, Roger covered that - Don't Date Yourself.

Book is very easy to read and has some good points but I don't think it was worth the $20 I paid for it. Now if I paid to see him live and they gave me the book, okay. Retail value should be arouns $11

A definite must read for anybody presenting in the virtual space. As a trainer, this has proved a handy resource in conducting web presentations.
Roger gives handy tips and techniques which stems from real life experience - not just research.
I've had the pleasure of attending one of the webinars delivered by Roger and his practice compliments his teaching - from the beginning of the session, he was using the same skills, tips and tricks mentioned in his book which made it more meaningful and engaging.
The easy to read style of the writing is short, sharp and to the point....and definitely not boring!

The economic strife has brought about awareness of the benefits of virtual training (i.e., webinars). Yet, the presenter skills used in an in-person training are not necessarily the same ones that are leveraged in a webinar environment. In "The Virtual Presenter's Handbook," Roger Courville has provided you with the information you need to tailor your presenation style for an effective, engaging webinar presentation. Don't deliver another webinar until you read this book!
