How to Increase Engagement and Avoid Online Meeting Failure

October 10, 2016


On-line meetings are crucial; done well the meetings increase sales, bring focus to marketing and company initiatives and save everyone time and money. Done poorly and everyone leaves the meeting wondering why they were there. During this program Jeff Smith, vice president at ClearSlide helps us over-come on-line meeting failures. The host is Jim Obermayer.
