VIRTUAL COMMUNICATION:

Mastering the Online Meeting

A Practical Tips Guide for Success

About The guide

This guide will help you address the factors you can control and put you on your way to more productive web meetings.

Since I first sat in on a web-based meeting several decades ago, I’ve felt that it is one of the most difficult environments to excel at with respect to communication. It’s NOT the same as meeting live humans around a table. There is more to monitor, more that can go wrong, and bad skills are highlighted and have dire consequences.  It’s (relatively) easy to pull off a web meeting; it’s (very) difficult to make it matter and come out with the results you want.

We will address five main topics in this guide:

  • Getting Ready to Meet 
  • Your Equipment and Setup
  • Skills to Make You a Star on the Web
  • Content and Facilitation
  • Ending Well
