Wayne Turmel, President of Great Web Meetings and host of TheConnectedManager.com blog has answers for all three questions in his new book Like You Mean It - A Leader’s Guide to Painless and Productive Virtual Meetings.
I’ve read it. It’s excellent. It's well-organized, well-written, chock-full of real world data, anecdotes, humor and solutions. If you’re going to host a webinar, a teleconference, a Google Hangout, you owe it to yourself to buy the book. In the book he shares much of the knowledge he’s gained from helping companies and their people master not only the communication and presentations skills to organize and deliver productive virtual meetings but also the tools and features of the major conferencing platforms so those productive meetings can be delivered painlessly.
Wayne Turmel, and his company Great Web Meetings, helps companies
