Free webinar: How to run effective virtual meetings


Running effective meetings is tricky enough when everyone is in the same room. When everyone is in a different place, not necessarily even a room, it can feel even more of a challenge. What’s more, with work more urgent and uncertain than ever,  it’s vital to make the best use of everyone’s time and brainpower.

Tune in if you’d like to:

  • Set your virtual meetings up for success. Learn how to prepare an agenda that ignites good thinking, work out how to get the right people in the virtual room, and make sure everyone can contribute.
  • Engage everyone in a productive discussion. Explore ways to get everyone involved in the conversation, bring out the differences of view that are vital for good decision-making, and make sure actions are captured and followed through.
  • Work out how to keep improving your meetings. Learn what others have been doing, pick up tips for reviewing your own meetings, and figure out what you’d like to keep or ditch when you can meet face to face again.

Effective virtual meetings happen by design, not by accident. You’ll come away from this webinar with ‘seven As’ to guide your own meetings and make the most of coming together virtually.
