Questions to consider .. are your virtual meetings providing a good return on investment & achieving your business objectives? If yes – how are you measuring return on investment, or the value of your meetings? What feedback are your participants giving you about engagement & improvements? Are your virtual meetings motivating & interactive? How good are your platforms? breakouts? video? studios? interaction? content? presenters & agendas?

To help introduce and explain hybrid/virtual meetings, we can simplify them into 4 main types. We can also explain them in terms of their ‘elements’, or the more important aspects for delivering successful hybrid/virtual meetings.

4 Types: of hybrid & virtual meetings

  1. Internal meetings: e.g. leadership, sales, launches, training, team.
  2. External meetings: e.g. for customers, distributors, partners, colleagues.
  3. Conferences: internal or external, with agenda, speakers, sessions & content.
  4. Webinars: more 1 way focus, live broadcast, with content for consumption.

Elements: and options for delivering hybrid meetings.

  • Planning, Design, Production, Management: best done by a virtual specialist.
  • Branding: can be zero (zoom call), or fully branded (design, video, imagery).
  • Participants: can be bored (1 way), or fully involved (2 way), as you prefer.
  • Presenters: can produce low quality home video, or high quality studio video.
  • Activity: can be minimal (people/slides), or wow (video, games, Q&A, polls).
  • Platforms: just video (zoom), or fully interactive & branded (see our platforms).
  • Interaction: e.g. breakouts, gamification, chat, Q&A, polls, networking.
  • Socializing: zero (just a video call), or pre & post social networking.
  • Video: can be pre-recorded (home/office/studio), or live (within platform).
  • Content: can be boring (PowerPoint), or fully interactive, with fun games.
  • Engagement: can be low (1 way), or high (2 way), for business growth.

2020 changed everything – in many good ways. Whilst real human beings will always prefer real physical meetings, everyone is now starting to learn about virtual & hybrid. Businesses can now organise their global meetings & events in many new interesting ways. This is creating new opportunities for organisers, participants, presenters, sales & marketing teams, engagement, interaction, delivery and consumption. Organisers of virtual & hybrid meetings have many new options (for engaging customers and employees). Some creative & agile businesses are already using the best virtual/hybrid capabilities – to improve customer/employee engagement, motivation & comms. Other businesses are still just using basic video conferencing (and way behind in terms of future thinking).
