Michelle Pappas, founder and director of Potomac Protocol & Etiquette, LLC, will give a presentation via Zoom only on “Virtual Zoom Etiquette and the Importance of Self-Presentation Today,” offered by Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum as a Morning Diversion on Thursday, April 15 at 11:00 am.
Pappas will focus on giving her audience a thorough understanding of the importance of etiquette in the virtual world of Zoom and how self-presentation plays an important part. She states “today, social media and texting have enhanced our ability to ‘connect’ with others on a scale never before imagined both on professional and personal levels. These opportunities provide unprecedented benefits for growth – but also risks – for adults, young adults and our children.”
The speaker, through her program, will emphasize the importance of proper human connection and personal engagement. She believes “that one’s presence, no matter the age, instills confidence and reflects character. With presence, one has the courage to stand, communicate ideas and connect with others.”
“With this age of electronic ‘connection,’” Pappas asks “are we developing or losing our ability to personally connect with our business colleagues, friends and peers?” The speaker will have the answers.
Pappas is a graduate of the American School of Protocol, Atlanta, GA, where she earned dual certifications for professional instruction in domestic Corporate Business Protocol and Children’s Etiquette. She also holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from The American University, Washington, D.C.
