For a meeting to truly be effective in a virtual format, you can’t just do things the same way you do when you are in person. Not only do you have to compete with the potential distractions of email and other work but the methods you use to keep people engaged are different. If done correctly, virtual meetings can allow for more p​eople to ask questions, increase engagement between attendees, and even provide access to audiences that might not otherwise be able to participate. If virtual meetings a part of your job, come learn how to design and run them in ways that will help you effectively communicate your message, facilitate interaction, and keep your audience engaged.
