Online Meetings That Matter

Meet Face-to-Face When You Can't Be Together

Technology is enabling more and more work to be done by distributed teams. Unlocking the potential of these teams means using that technology effectively. Teams need to make effective use of their time together in meetings, and this is no small task. Even skilled facilitators can struggle to make online meetings as engaging and productive as in-person ones.

If you are:

  • A leader who convenes online meetings,

  • A facilitator who supports online meetings, or

  • A meeting attendee frustrated with online meetings,

then I can help you make your online meetings more engaging and effective.

(How Not To) Take Your Meetings Online

Outcomes: Online meetings that more engaging, productive, and effective.

As organizations take their meetings online, they rarely consider what not to bring from their in-person meetings. Designing online meetings that are as engaging and productive as their in-person versions is hard. Making an online meeting effective is even harder when the in-person meeting it replaced wasn’t engaging to begin with.

In this workshop, participants:

  • work together on real problems with their online meetings,

  • explore complaints and frustrations in a way that leads to productive action, and

  • identify what to stop doing to make these meetings more engaging, productive, and effective.
