He’s in Chicago, she’s in Austin, a few of them are in Kansas City, and the rest in a Washington conference room. Despite some good planning, the meeting is a bust. What went wrong? In two words, bad mechanics. Conversations lacked balance, people struggled with the audio, and those tuning in remotely never connected with the in-person team. Hybrid meetings are tricky business and harder to run than those where everyone is either virtual or together. This two-hour course covers best practices for leveling the playing field and connecting people who are together and at a distance.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
Ask important questions to understand the hybrid presentation environment and its limitations.
Target a presentation to a hybrid audience.
Organize information so it is easy for a hybrid audience to follow.
Avoid favoring an audience based on its location.
Leverage engagement strategies to keep everyone interested and focused.
