There are lots of reasons to take your meetings and trainings to digital platforms.

I just heard the word, “carmageddon” to describe the anticipated traffic congestion coming to downtown Seattle. (Seattle Traffic even has it’s own website Yikes!)

More and more of us are working remotely to promote work/life balance or collaborate with others in many locations. Virtual meetings may be something you do often, but executing them skillfully is becoming even more crucial.

Virtual meetings can be challenging. It can be difficult to integrate visuals, engage everybody, get real work done or to perceive subtle social cues. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who is even talking or to move from unstructured open discussion to something more productive while online.

And yet, there are incredible tools that online platforms can give us to more efficiently understand scenarios, more equitably include all voices, quickly make information visual.
