Meeting Moderation in the Virtual World
Chairing a meeting is a skill; you have to ensure everyone has the chance to speak, not just the most voluble member of the team. It's your responsibility to keep the focus and ensure the contributors remember why you are getting together, and to make sure the meeting achieves it's objective. As many of us have been experiencing, this is even more difficult when the meeting is run virtually - we all know the Zoom Zeds, the Skype Silliness and the Teams Tiredness. This can be avoided with a designated moderator who knows not only how to keep everyone to time, but can remain calm when technology fails, can encourage the quiet person to feel confident and contribute their ideas, and who knows when it's necessary to call a break. If you want to learn more about these skills and techniques and how to ensure your meetings are interesting, educational, and enjoyable, sign up to develop your moderation skills in the virtual world.
