Creating Dynamic Online Workshops

Presenting a workshop online is definitely not like doing it in person. Sometimes it feels like speaking to dead air while in a vacuum. What can we do to be creative and interactive enough to prevent participants from drifting away? In this workshop, we will dive into a few ideas on how you can stay ahead of the brain drain and make sure the audience stays engaged until the webinar is over.
