Combining Virtual and In-Person Meetings

  • Suggestions from the video
  • Appoint a Zoom Goddess or Zoom Czar.
  • The leader of the meeting sets expectations or ground rules
  • Start each meeting with physical activity or stretching. 
  • Prepare an agenda in advance.
  • Have a standard zoom virtual background. (One solution is to take a picture of your meeting room and use that as everyone’s virtual background, so it feels like everyone is in the same room.)
