Online Meetings for Dummies

Your meetings online starting tomorrow

Remote customers. Team members in different locations. Participants or stakeholders that cannot or will not come to you. Rings a bell? We obviously prefer to have everyone physically in one place because we get more non-verbal and contextual information that way. And that’s what seems to disappear when you meet online… but does it really? At Beanmachine, we have been meeting online for years and have found many ways to start a dialogue, share knowledge and collect information in a fast, efficient and fun way with (many) people online. Want to learn the basics together with your colleagues and start apply immediately the day after? In this online 60’ session we train you the 4 steps and the 4M’s to run successful online meetings: Mindset – Muscles - Method – Machinery.
