During the recent pandemic, a lot of individuals, small businesses and not-for-profit / charitable organisations have become increasingly reliant on communication technology to support remote working. Now more of us are returning to work there is an increasing demand for effective and efficient hybrid meeting capacity when our audience is a mixture of both those physically present as part of a group and those who join remotely as virtual attendees. Such Hybrid meetings require us to both select and exploit those technologies which best suit effective participation by all of those attending.

Colin’s talk is intended to explain some of the technologies behind hybrid meetings and those ways in which it can be used effectively and efficiently, especially on a limited budget. Hybrid meetings provide many advantages, but require a good knowledge of the technology and that sufficient people understand it well enough to establish, support and exploit the capabilities.

In the current post-pandemic and stringent financial climate, Hybrid meetings are likely set to become the ever increasing way to conduct ‘business as usual’.
