How to run a virtual meeting

There are several platforms for running virtual chats or meetings so make sure you and the team can make the most of the virtual time together whilst staying safe. Here are two of the most popular:

You can also do a four person video call via WhatsApp. Or use whatever social media platforms you already use to communicate  

Some handy tips for virtual meetings:

  1. Agree a time for all to join the meeting and make sure you stick to the timings – short and concise is better! 
  2. Send everyone the link to join the meeting well in advance, maybe have a test run to make sure the technology is working.
  3. Give the team some time to settle in, and make sure everybody can be heard.

Now all you need to do is make sure everyone has their kettle boiled before the meeting!
