The 2nd videoconference of our Covid-19 & Business strategy was dedicated to: How to run a remote meeting in the era of new technologies

There were more than 30 participants present to listen to Béatrice Rivas-Seidel, Consultant and Coach specialised in remote management, present the best practices to succeed in what has become our preferred method of group communication in teleworking.

How to successfully prepare, organise and lead a group or groups in a remote setting:

  • Define a clear “Web Etiquette” for flexible and efficient communication:
    • prepare a lighter agenda than in a traditional meeting
    • ensure that the technical elements are operational (wi-fi, headset, web cam, etc.)
    • give clear rules of conduct from the outset
    • reduce the causes of interruption and distraction by muting and turning off video for all participants, thereby reducing bandwidth
    • use very simple slides with an illustration
  • Get everyone comfortable and connected with ice breakers
  • Make sure everyone participates: control the talkative ones and motivate the shy ones
  • Carry out an individual and general conclusion

A very effective Business Clinic for our members because it was based on many examples put directly into practice for all of us.
