Virtual meetings are the new normal

With travel grinding to a halt, along with a multitude of other changes to our daily activities, businesses and organizations have had to rethink the way they communicate with their employees, members or other stakeholders. While webcasts and webinars have been popular for more than a decade, their popularity has skyrocketed in the last two months. If someone hadn't heard of a virtual meeting, a webcast or Zoom, they have now. What once was considered an option is now considered a necessity.

Our business model changed as well. The majority of our work was at an office, hotel or conference center. We connected microphones to presenters, lit the room and streamed the presentation live to viewers. I refer to those times as 'the good old days.' Handshakes, breakfast buffets and ice cold meeting rooms are now a fond memory.

Overnight, we pivoted to producing those events in a virtual environment. Presenters are now speaking from their kitchens and home offices. Viewers are watching on phones, tablets and laptops. We connect them in a seamless manner. A webcam on one end, a web browser on the other. We add slides, videos, surveys and polls. Q&A goes directly to the presenters while the audience can chat with other viewers.

User interfaces are intuitive and designed to allow the event, the experience, to be the focus of attention. The technology is there, but works to support the user, not become an obstacle to users to decipher.
