Tips to conduct a great virtual meeting

To make your virtual meetings well, here are some tips you can follow:

  • Schedule right: Make sure the time for the virtual meeting is convenient for everyone. Also ensure everyone knows about the time and send them reminders, if possible.
  • Test the technology ahead of time: Avoid delay by ensuring everyone downloads the necessary software ahead of time. All participants should also test their tools to make sure it is working well.
  • Stick to the meeting agenda: Set a clear objective before the meeting and stick to it. Make sure there is time set aside for breaks.
  • Assign a meeting coordinator: Assign the role of a coordinator to a participant. This person will help guide the conversation. The coordinator should also be in charge of helping participants solve their technology issues. 
  • Keep people engaged: Get everyone to participate and ensure everyone contributes to the discussion. Encourage the less outspoken participants to speak before making decisions.


Warm-up sessions during virtual meetings are created to ensure conversation flow, remove shyness and increase connection among participants. Here are examples of warm-up activities:

  • Book/music sharing: Ask everyone to share their favorite music at the moment. Also, you can ask them to recommend a book for the team.
  • Show and tell: Ask participants to take a picture of their current workspace and share it with you. Upload (without adding names) and have everyone take a guess about which workspace belongs to who and why.
  • Trivia/quiz: Start a trivia/quiz about something (e.g the company). Give participants 30 seconds to answer each question. 
  • Throwback challenge: Ask participants to share a photo of when they are younger for all to see. 
  • Cook: Ask each participant to share a photo of their breakfast with you. Upload (without adding names) and have everyone guess who cooked what.
