Effective virtual meetings require both the knowledge of how to use the technology effectively and the ability to facilitate and create engagement and participation virtually.
Many face-to-face meetings are fairly dull and lack participation. If we simply migrate this approach to virtual meetings such as webinars, things will only get worse – and participants are free to multitask or log in but ignore the content of your meeting.
Global integration have developed a particular capability in creating engaging online virtual meetings – webinars and other events through tools like Skype for business or WebEx. We can quickly adapt our techniques to other platforms you may use.
We deliver many of our training programs through these tools and can also train your people to use them more effectively to communicate and to create real engagement and participation. You can quickly learn the participation tools that these platforms offer (such as polling or whiteboards) by playing with the technology but we can bring techniques to help you integrate these tools systematically into the way you facilitate virtual meetings to create surprising levels of participation.
We can also give you the facilitation skills you need to plan and deliver more effective virtual meetings with your colleagues, customers and partners.
Virtual meetings normally need to be shorter and more focused and we have a well-established methodology for identifying which topics should be delivered in this live online environment and which participants they are relevant to.
Cutting out unnecessary topics and participants can significantly reduce the length of your virtual meetings and increase the relevance of the topics you discuss to the attendees.
The techniques we can bring will help you reduce the number and improve the quality of the face-to-face and online meetings that remain.
These programs are, of course, delivered through webinars where we can demonstrate the techniques and inspire and enable you to use the technical and facilitation tools yourself.
In addition to our bespoke programs we have packaged up our most popular virtual, matrix and agile/digital content into bite sized 90 minute modules available face to face or virtually. Get details on these modules and learning paths here
