Effective Conferencing: Helpful Tips
As you host and join countless conference calls, it's important that you keep them professional and productive at the same time.
Don't Waste Time on Technical Problems
Separate out attendees having difficulties to keep the meeting on-task and avoid derailing a critical conference to address individual technical issues.
Make Engagement Mandatory
Start meetings by engaging members with a poll or light-hearted question to set the expectation that engagement is mandatory.
Summarize With Succinct Close Notes and Next Steps
Invest in a system that enables an easier way to deliver action items, either by recorded/archived footage, accessible copy of the chatroom, or shareable presentation.
