This course aims to…

  • Introduce strategies and tools for delivering successful hybrid meetings
  • Provide an opportunity for you to reflect on the actions you can take in your context to improve hybrid meeting delivery

We are passionate about the changes that are coming about due to the changing nature of how we work. The technical challenges of running blended environments well, will mean that humans will have to think, prepare, and collaborate more to make blended meetings effective for all participants, whether they are in a room with colleagues or joining in remotely. This is all an opportunity. It is inevitable. We expect the reality will be that over the next couple of years the change in culture will be bumpy. We want to make that smoother. We want equality and parity of esteem. We want to live and work within the resources of 1 planet. We want that now… and meantime this shift is part of that jigsaw.
