Virtual Meetings

Virtual Meetings

Being able to participate in meetings from your living room is a huge advantage in unprecedented situations like a pandemic. However, virtual meetings are not an excuse to forget basic etiquette. Everyone involved needs to respect each other’s time, and laying down some ground rules is an excellent way to ensure meetings don’t devolve into everyone talking over each other.

As a Toastmaster I have recently participated in quite a few virtual meetings, most have not gone off without at least a little hiccup.  That’s why I was pleased to find an article giving the top 5 Meeting Etiquette Tips   for remote meetings.

Have you attended any remote meetings lately?  Have you had any disasters?

What have you learned that would help others?
