Never host another bored meeting again.

Practices & activities for engaging people in online meetings

Virtual meetings       can be soul               sucking.

Let's focus on thinking & learning, not just video etiquette.

As we spend more time in virtual meetings, it is getting harder to stay engaged.

 

So far, most have asked, "how do we optimize video conferencing?"

At Virtually Human, we are shifting the conversation to, "how do we optimize human engagement?".

 

We are a free resource available to the facilitators of the world, hoping to inspire dynamic and effective conversations, online.
