Topic: Virtual Meeting Best Practices
Date: May 12, 2020
Time: 1:30 PM (CST)

In light of social distancing recommendations and more people working remotely, information about the etiquette for participating in virtual meetings is becoming more widely relevant. This presentation covers some best practices for working with others while in various locations and, specifically, tips and tricks for having productive virtual meetings.

Like any business meeting, scheduling and preparing is key to facilitating a productive virtual meeting. By focusing on the upfront work, you can be respectful of everyone’s time and effectively collaborate with co-workers and clients from a distance. Attention to detail and patience are vital when learning new software, especially when working with others who may also be engaging with these technologies for the first time. But, when used effectively, online platforms allow us to meet more efficiently and continue being productive from home.

In this presentation, we discuss how to prepare for and run a virtual meeting to minimize distractions and focus on the purpose of the meeting. Topics covered include:

  • The advantages of virtual meetings
  • Teleconference software considerations
  • Similarities with face-to-face meeting etiquette
  • How to accommodate audio-only meetings

Our goal is to reduce stress and streamline your virtual meeting practices so that you can focus on communicating well with others and doing your job successfully. You can also read our blog post here.
