Whether it's preparing onboarding videos or hosting a virtual classroom training, many talent development professionals make on-screen appearances. Here are three ways to boost your confidence and own the screen.
Practice, practice, practice.
You want to know what you look like on camera prior to getting on camera. Rehearse in front of a mirror first, then on camera to get the lighting correct. That way you won't have any surprises.
Own your subject matter.
The more you know your subject matter, the easier it is to get into your engaging self and avoid sounding like a robot who's reading off a teleprompter. And if you use notes, don't read from them directly. Own the information and look into the camera.
Select the right attire.
As you would for an interview, you want to look your best on camera. Wear something that fits well and makes you feel confident and powerful. You'll automatically feel more comfortable, and viewers will notice.
