Dialing in, Logging on, Nodding Off: Why Telemeetings Go Wrong and What You Can Do To Prevent It

Meeting Description:

Everyone is looking for ways to cut costs and work smarter these days, and that means more organizations are scheduling teleconferences, videoconferences, and webinars instead of in-person meetings. On paper, where the savings clearly add up, this makes sense, but if you’ve ever been stuck on an endless conference call, you may already be wondering: is this really a better way to meet?
This spring, Andy Goodman invited public interest professionals from across the US and Canada to answer that question. More than 1,200 people completed his online survey, and now he has a much clearer picture of what works and what doesn’t in telemeetings.
Andy will present the full results of his survey and share what he’s learned. Each participant will also receive a complimentary copy of his new report, Dialing In, Logging On, Nodding Off. So join us on July 21st and find out how your organization can ensure that its telemeetings are worth having.
