Zoom and Teams meetings have become part of the permanent meeting landscape, bringing with them the opportunities to engage easily with colleagues across the globe and build hybrid teams.
Along with lockdowns, it has brought new ways of working — more casual in attire and location (think casual clothes and kitchen counter tops), more informal (think zoom-bombing by errant children, pets and spouses) and more humanised (think backgrounds, surroundings and technical glitches).
As we move forward out of COVID, and this way of working is normalised, the novelty will wear off and potential for disengagement will occur and expectations will change as to what is acceptable as professional behaviour.
So how will you ensure that your online meetings are engaging your audience? What is likely to become the new standard of professionalism for these meetings? How will you ensure that you meet these expectations for yourself and meet those of your agency?
This interactive and engaging workshop will show you how to connect in a meaningful and authentic manner online, recognize the constraints and opportunities of online meetings, be more polished and professional in your presentations and give you tips and tricks to be more confident in your meeting set up.
