How to make virtual meetings not suck


GST Included

The average executive spends 23 hours in meetings per week. This amount has probably doubled now that we are in the land of doing everything via virtual meeting (or at least, that’s how it feels…).

And as if meetings didn’t suck enough, virtual meetings are worse. If you are the one running it, are you ever really sure people aren’t just in their inbox rather than paying attention to you? And if you are participating, checking your emails is generally more interesting than the meeting itself.


Virtual meetings have always been a challenge. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that now, we need them more than ever. And unfortunately, most of us are not adept at navigating the unique challenges that the virtual world presents us. But with unique challenges, comes unique solutions.
