We recently reached out to friends and facilitators who use zoom breakouts and asked them a couple open-ended questions:

  • What do you like/dislike about zoom breakouts?
  • What are your biggest frustrations, what do you find lacking about them (as either a host and/or participant)?

We received 100+ survey responses (and counting- folks are still sharing their input if you’d be so kind?)- many of them in great, lengthy detail. Ready to see what everyone said?

Promoting remote collaboration among off-site team members can be a difficult task. Outside factors and company issues can quickly hurt your employees’ productivity.

Trying to engage participants virtually is not the same as it was with in-person events. Luckily, a virtual event can have the same excitement and reach as the ones before the coronavirus — with the right tools and tips, that is.

The Challenges of Engaging Online

As you’ve likely discovered, business events take on new challenges in the digital world.

Bigger aspects, too, like question-and-answer sessions, are now changing.

The reality, however, is that this transition to the digital world is necessary.

And with virtual events, getting people to stay focused is critical.
