Your Remote Meetings Have to Be Engaging: Here’s How to Do It

Remote meetings don’t always work out as planned, mostly because of the ebbs and flows of team engagement. Harvard Business Review notes in an article on running a great virtual meeting that productivity is likely to dip due to lack of focus and preparation on the part of the organizer, attempts at multitasking among team members, and one or two attendees dominating the meeting.

Testimonials

FacilitatePro is a pleasure to work with. I have another event tomorrow. Being able to work up ideas in parallel is going to shorten the event by 2 or 3 hours. Also, virtually everyone in the event is a strong introvert. Letting them write anonymously in their own little world should be a great help. And, being able to make real-time changes in a conference as the session evolves helps keep the team on track
