As flexible working increases and meeting platforms become more advanced, virtual and hybrid meetings can be powerful tools. They’re convenient, easy to set up and allow us to draw minds together from all over the world.

However, they do require a different approach to in-person meetings and without the right facilitation, they can be a major source of frustration! Technology can fail, distractions abound and the ease with which they can be arranged can lead to unnecessary engagements and wasted time. Facilitating these meetings requires an intentional approach to planning and delivery to ensure fairness, interaction and collaboration.

So how can we reap the benefits of virtual and hybrid meetings whilst avoiding the pitfalls?

This virtual workshop uses current research and practical tips to help participants discover more effective ways to deliver virtual and hybrid meetings. We explore how to plan and structure a meeting to ensure that the right people are present, focused and engaged; how to establish meeting guidelines and etiquette so that misunderstandings can be avoided; and how to build-in interactive processes that keep everyone involved.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:
