Virtual Presentation Resources For Speakers

With the help of business creativity, innovation and artificial intelligence expert, James Taylor, we are eager to provide some basic guidelines for those speakers who are learning the ropes of presenting virtual presentations. This guide contains suggested equipment lists and setups for speakers, masterclass leaders,  emcees, hosts, on-screen talent and clients who have to deliver virtual keynotes, trainings,  interviews or presentations.


As someone who has been giving virtual keynote speeches and training online since 2010 I know how daunting it can be if you are new to presenting virtually.

However today anyone can build a simple home studio setup within a few days. Presenting online  is a little like riding a bicycle for the first time. You might wobble a bit on the first few attempts,  but then it will become second-nature to you.   

A basic home studio setup for delivering online presentations can cost a few hundred dollars.  However professional speakers and corporate clients should look to invest a few thousands  dollars to build home studio or office setups that look and sound high quality.  

Depending on what kind of presentations you give you would want one of four studio setups:

  • Basic – simple setup which can also be used in the home, office or on the road (for example from a hotel room).
  • Pro Keynoter – full seated setup when presenting from home or office.
  • Pro Trainer/Host – full setup for hosts/mc’s/trainers for home/office use which allows the speaker to stand and move more freely.
  • Corporate Studio – full setup in a corporate office to film a variety of presentations including direct to camera, training videos, online courses and interviews.
