Bob Hooey Pivot to Present


Compiled by Bob ‘Idea Man’ Hooey, Ideas to delivery your virtual message with impact.

When we presenters had to pivot

There are a few people in our industry, when if they ask for a favour, people love to respond. One of those is our friend, Bob ‘Idea Man’ Hooey from Canada. Bob is incredibly generous with his time, help and sharing of his vast experience. The author of a huge number of books, when we went into lock downs around world in response to Covid, Bob reached out to professional speaking colleagues and asked them to contribute to this book about ways to present online as opposed to our live work.

The authors in this compilation come from all across the globe. Please follow the link, download the book, and be inspired to take advantage of what this crisis has to offer us as speakers, trainers, presenters and anyone else who now has to use online tools to share ideas and content.
