Managing Remote Meetings Successfully


Keeping Virtual Meetings Focused, Engaging & On Track

Time spent in unproductive or out of control remote meetings can be frustrating. In order to be successful, it is important to understand the strategies that help set up the ‘virtual do’s & don’ts’ as well as keeping the participants engaged and focused. Having a clear strategy of how to navigate virtual meetings is imperative to help them be successful and productive.

As the majority of meetings today are now conducted remotely managing the people dynamic in this format can be challenging at the best of times. Just like face to face meetings participants can dominate, waffle, or use the opportunity to promote their own agenda.

‘Managing Remote Meetings Successfully’ is a learning session to empower participants with ideas to get remote meetings back on track! It covers many of the key strategies to relieve common sore points that make virtual meetings frustrating and unfruitful.
