Making Virtual Meetings Work

About this virtual course

Most people today are having to attend too many poorly planned and executed virtual meetings. Given the amount of time we spend in meetings, we have to learn how to make them work better. This one-day course helps you minimize the number of meetings you have. Also, you learn how to make your meetings shorter and more productive.
