Advances in technology, together with globalisation and the desire for better work-life balance have the demand for more and more virtual meetings at work – whether they be by phone, video conferencing or software such as Webex, MS Teams, Skype or Zoom (to name just a few!)

The recent changes have dramatically increased the requirement for virtual meetings, and made them ‘virtually’ unavoidable.

Virtual meetings have all the same challenges as face to face meetings – plus many others, and this course aims to demystify what it takes to run a great, productive virtual meeting.

Common concerns we hear from people who attend this session include:

  • How do I run an effective virtual meeting?
  • How do I structure and control the meeting?
  • How do I stop everyone talking over each other?
  • How do I make my virtual meetings productive?

This is an interactive and participative virtual workshop where you can share your ideas and learn from others.
