Let’s admit it: Hybrid meetings are bastards! From bad tech, to not being able to see or hear the remote participants clearly, hybrid meetings (where some are in the room and some are remote) are the worst kinds of meetings. But they don’t have to be! With the right equipment and facilitation techniques, you can turn a bad meeting around.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to design a hybrid meeting for maximum engagement
- EffectivePopular technology tweaks that can help remote people feel part of the group
- The three common mistakes you’ll want to avoid for productive hybrid meetings
- Facilitation techniques to engage both in- the- room - and remote - participants
- How to get yourself heard when you’re the remote participant
- When a hybrid meeting is probably the wrong option, and you should choose all-in-the-room or all-remote instead.
This is an all-remote event: each participant is expected to join the video call from an individual device, in order to maximise engagement and participation.
We’ll start and finish on time, the technology will work seamlessly, and you’ll meet fellow-leaders who share your challenges.
We’ll be online together for 100 minutes. And we promise that it will be surprisingly enjoyable!
Author, speaker, consultant, trainer and coach based in London, UK. Leading on distributed diversity and communication clarity in complex contexts.
I'm a facilitator, coach and trainer - mostly working over the internet. Not long ago I facilitated what was probably the world's first "video unconference" in which 150 people self-organised to talk about the things that mattered to them.
I'm the co-author of a bestselling book, "Clean Language", which describes a precision inquiry toolkit which works especially well in complex systems. I coach using this methodology, and I also teach Clean Language to Agile coaches and others, mostly online. I'm the co-founder of the Rees McCann Partnership.
I am a remote-working German-born American living in the Netherlands and I am totally jazzed by the fact that it's possible to work from anywhere. In fact, it's not just possible; it's completely, productively workable—if you do it right.
From extensive research and first-hand experience, as well as from interviews with over 100 workers and manager/owners, I have collected a treasure trove of advice & action lists, pitfalls & solutions, and personal reports of individuals and teams engaged in doing great things—successfully—from wherever they happen to be.
