Testimonial Anu Tähemaa
Online meetings require a new discipline. Participants often run late, looking for the link or setting up cam and audio. Plan your meeting 5-10 minutes after the hour, e.g. start at 9h10. And, finish 5 min before the hour, e.g. 9h55. Since most people will book the entire hour in their calendar, chances are that you can start on time. Also, do let them know that you already open the meeting room on the hour to socialize.
The most effective online meetings take 31 to 45 minutes. The shorter, the better. Behind their web cam people seem to be locked into their seat. Some even forget to breathe deeply. So switch hosts. Create short energy breaks, or make people laugh. It does help to activate your audience: ask them to change their position, take a deep breath, or drink a glass of water.
