Running Online & Virtual Meetings

How to make virtual meetings work

Knowledge is power – even if you don’t use social media!

About this course

In Thailand, there is a saying that’s often shared: same, same, but different. That’s exactly the problem online and virtual meetings: they have some similarities to live meetings but they need different skills to make them successful.

In this short, information-rich session, we’ll cover:

  • What needs to happen before the meeting: defining agendas, sending out pre-reading, gathering opinions
  • Technology choices
  • Tech tests
  • Online meeting etiquette
  • Leading the meeting: body language and voice
  • Involving attendees
  • Post-meeting follow-ups

There will be time for questions during and after the session.

Please note that this is not a workshop and no time has been set aside for small group work or brainstorming.


Anyone who leads or participates in online meetings.


This short session is designed to help meeting organisers and attendees get the most out of online interactions.
