Our profession and judicial system are forever altered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost overnight, technology now plays a dominant role in so many aspects of practice with personal appearances, face to face meetings, team briefings, mediations and arbitrations in person often replaced by video conferencing.
Delivering your best performance in these circumstances is essential to justice and requires specialised skills.
It seems certain that remote hearings and meetings will continue to be an important part of the system. Digital communication comes with challenges, but there are proven ways to do it successfully.
The ACT Bar Association presents a one and half hour seminar to hone your presentation skills on screen:
Advocating on Screen – meeting the challenges of the “virtual” environment
Presented by the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) via a webinar
Wednesday 4 November, 2020 at 5.30pm – 7.00pm
Location – On screen
Cost – $65.00 for members and $85.00 for non members (you will receive an invoice from the ACT Bar separate from your registration).
Global leaders in the field of on-screen presentation training, NIDA’s Corporate Training team has worked with us to develop this session to optimise your performance and address the particular challenges faced by barristers when advocating online.
NIDA will address and develop strategies to:
improve your online presence refine digital communication skills including voice increase the participants’ awareness of on-screen dynamics and body awareness provide specialist tools to enable you to be more effective online.
Much like an online hearing, participants will require an adequate camera, audio and internet set-up; sufficient private space with a non-identifiable background and a little standing room as there will be some exercises that will require participants to stand and move around.
The NSW Bar recently ran two similar courses, with overwhelming positive feedback from their members.
