Zoom vs. Room in Five Parts
Next week’s Adviceblog series is titled Zoom vs. Room. This is a five-part series on virtual professional and business meetings versus in-person meetings. Most of us had seen cases where some of professional meetings thrived, while other professional meetings faltered. The question is why? Over the five-part Adviceblog series we will explore the “Whys”. This series is not for general company meetings, team meetings, project status meetings and non-professional group meetings. It is only focused on professional and business meetings you elect to join and participant in professional education and advancement. The results are based on feedback of over 300 participants of our membership and members of other professional associations.
