A business or organisation considering whether a digital meeting tool is worth a closer look should ask themselves a few questions before making a decision.
You have busy days, right?
In that case, you are not alone. Time is a scarce resource and although we have more digital tools and aids at hand than ever before we often forget to use them.
Virtual meetings can be challenging but when face-to-face isn’t an option and the group email chains are getting too complex, it’s time to bring the team together virtually.
All too many people have had the experience of a conference call gone wrong, awkward silences, people talking over each other, and that distracted tone of voice and clicking keyboard that tells you your colleague is using the meeting as a chance to catch up on something else. But it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right set-up, video meetings can be just as effective as face-to-face meetings, possibly even more so.
Next time you need to connect your colleagues across time and space, try these tips for maximizing engagement and bringing the meeting to life.
Introducing First Agenda to Douglas Borough Council on the Isle of Man has been transformational. Before FirstAgenda, the administration team had to manually print, bind and then post or hand deliver all of the agendas and related documents for council meetings every month. This was a time intensive process, plus it used a lot of paper.
The Danish Agriculture & Food Council started using FirstAgenda in one of their foundations in 2012. Since then, it has spread like wildfire to the rest of the organization. The result: They are saving time and money compared to the manual processes they used to use. Today, FirstAgenda is the primary meeting tool for all of their boards and foundations. Using one tool for meetings accross the organization makes it easier for both administrators and those who are members of several boards.
