Allowing staff to combine working in the office and working remotely has brought a lot of flexibility into our lives. But it has also added complexity to the way we work and communicate with each other. Make sure you’re ready to go for hybrid meetings in your organisation with this 1-hour course.

In this course we will look at some of the key considerations of hybrid meetings and why they are an important part of our workplace capabilities now and in the future. We will explore some of the common challenges that we might face when participating in and facilitating blended/hybrid meetings and we will offer some tried and tested tools, strategies and approaches to support you in delivering your own successful hybrid meetings.

This course aims to…

  • Highlight some of the specific challenges of conducting good hybrid meetings

  • Introduce strategies and tools for delivering successful hybrid meetings

  • Provide an opportunity for you to reflect on the actions you can take in your context to improve hybrid meeting delivery

We are passionate about the changes that are coming about due to the changing nature of how we work. The technical challenges of running blended environments well, will mean that humans will have to think, prepare, and collaborate more to make blended meetings effective for all participants, whether they are in a room with colleagues or joining in remotely. This is all an opportunity. It is inevitable. We expect the reality will be that over the next couple of years the change in culture will be bumpy. We want to make that smoother. We want equality and parity of esteem. We want to live and work within the resources of 1 planet. We want that now... and meantime this shift is part of that jigsaw.

Really helpful course especially around the ladder of actions and the 5 D's. I really enjoyed this course and it will help with a lot of the community group meetings I have that are Hybrid

A very helpful overview. Particularly useful as I have recently moved into a role in which hybrid meetings take place, and this is new to me. Some great advice about how to get the most out of them. Simple advice that will be straightforward to try. Thank you.

The course is a very good introduction to all the things we need to think about and do differently when planning and leading or participating in blended or hybrid meetings. This is very important skill to start to explore in this new world. Looking forward to doing the more advanced course next.

This course was an excellent comprehensive introduction to the considerations in relation to running hybrid meetings. This knowledge has increasing value in today's working environments and this course presents the information in a clear, concise, easy to understand format that uses a range of text, images and video to enhance the learning experience.

The course is clearly presented, filled with good insight and helping me learn more about a very topical issue and challenge in today's world of blended working and collaboration.

This is very relevant to me given the amount of online and blended facilitation and influencing I need to do in my day to day work. A good introduction with lots of key points to consider (many I hadn't thought of before). Nice, short, and well presented film clips make this easy to digest. Looking forward to taking the more in-depth course on how to run them.

This is a helpful introduction covering issues to consider when setting up hybrid (or blended) meetings. Although I had thought about the potential benefits to the planet, I had not considered the potential positive impacts on communities. Looking forward to exploring the issues in more depth in the next course.

Superb course. I now know how to setup a meeting with users in multiple locations and make it fully interactive, no mean feat. Well done!
