Just because the meeting is not in-person does not mean it has to be impersonal! You thought it was challenging to hold the attention of in-person meeting attendees, add the virtual element and now the word challenging has a brand new meaning! This content-packed session will offer many fun and practical tools to energize your virtual meetings!

The session provides easy-to-implement strategies to enhance every aspect of the meeting process. You will learn strategies to enhance pre-meeting announcements, openings, agenda planning and closings. For meetings, content is king, however, the delivery of the meeting is also vital to create a sense of excitement among participants. No one learns when they're cyber-sleeping! Come prepared for a content-rich and invigorating session. 

You will learn how to:

  • Review virtual techniques to open meetings with energy and enthusiasm.
  • Analyze educational tools/exercises/games to add impact to the cyber-meeting content.
  • Discuss techniques to close virtual meetings to ensure learning takes place.
