Corporate executives and industry thought leaders know how to get their message across in person. But put many of these same people in front of a webcam for a video meeting or to make a presentation at an online conference, and they seem to settle for “good enough.”
We’ve all witnessed this: speakers who have an extreme “up the nose” camera angle and a cluttered or distracting background. They fail to engage their audience with their actions, their words, or their delivery. In short, their online impression is not on brand or on message for their company and their mission, and they waste an opportunity to be more persuasive and influential.
You can make a better return on the time you invest in video meetings and online presentations. A personal video meeting advisor can give you the guidance you need to make changes that you can put to work right away!

The Three “I’s”
Some coaches will just dump you into some enormous online course to work through on your own, whether the content is relevant to your needs or not.
That’s not what Alfred does.
Instead, he provides targeted advice specific to your individual needs. He will identify the one factor that will yield the biggest improvement. Once you have achieved that, he will move onto the next, and the next.
Five Reasons to
Work with Alfred
Alfred graciously offered to fill in a speaker spot for Venture Café on very short notice. He immediately jumped in to provide a description of his session, headshot, and created a social media graphic to immediately promote the event. Not only was he a pleasure to work with, but he generously went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. He was well-prepared and his presentation was timed to fit our schedule. He was interactive and energetic as he delivered practical and relevant information for our participants. They were engaged throughout, and we all enjoyed a lively discussion. We look forward to collaborating with Alfred again in the future!

I invited Alfred Poor to present to the founders of our portfolio companies about the strategic advantages of making a better impression in video meetings and online presentations. Alfred was easy to work with, coming up with a lot of good ideas to tailor the session for our group’s needs. He clearly “walks the walk” as his online presentation was professional, engaging, and well beyond the look of a typical Zoom call. He had many practical tips that the founders could put to use right away, and he even provided a “five-minute makeover” for one brave volunteer. The founders appreciated the valuable content, and we are considering holding another session for our other companies.
