How to run teleconference meetings – techniques to make your virtual meetings effective

Most of us have got used to running teleconference meetings. What we lose with the personal human contact we gain in efficiency.

How can we make our teleconference call more interactive and human? How can we get more active participation? The workshop includes tips and techniques to manage teleconferences.

Course content
  • Teleconference calls versus face-to-face – what are the differences in communications?
  • A checklist of speaking to camera (Skype or Webex)
  • Set up  – things to remember about setting up conference calls
  • Teleconference protocol – how to set the energy level, introduce speakers and set the rules
  • Management – ability to steer the discussion, review and summarise the main messages
  • Voice control – how to get the maximum emphasis from your voice for teleconferences
  • How to break the ice and get maximum audience participation

We will discuss tips that you can use if you are moderating a teleconference call.

This teleconference workshop training is for staff at EU trade associations, foundations, corporate public affairs and regional offices who have to moderate teleconference meetings with partners, staff and clients.

What to expect in the training

We share our ideas on the differences between online and face-to-face meetings. We then set up some practice tasks and record you for playback and feedback. You will come away feeling more comfortable with running virtual meetings.

Format – face-to-face and online

Face-to-face: We bring people together in groups at your office or training centre.
