Rachel Greenwald, a celebrity matchmaker and Executive Fellow at Harvard Business School, knows how important relationships are in work, love and life. Through her work on Zoom coaching business executives struggling with remote teams, and with singles struggling with dating online, she has curated the 21 most successful tactics to elevate your Zoom charisma and help you build authentic connections in the new world of Zoom.

This workshop can be taught virtually as a 1 hour, 1.5 hour, or 2 hour session, and includes a customized handout with detailed tips to augment the workshop.
