For more than 20 years, Worktank has been helping c-suite executives successfully host meetings with both in-person and virtual attendees across the globe. Here are our recommendations for creating a balanced experience for all participants.
Is the free version of Microsoft Teams enough, or is it necessary to upgrade to a paid plan for the purpose of video meetings? To help you determine which is best for your business, we outline the key differences between the free and paid versions of MS Teams Meetings.
Whether you’re making marketing videos for your business, or hosting a virtual meeting on Zoom, it’s important to look your best on camera. But let’s face it, webcams aren’t exactly flattering. Fortunately, our video production experts have a few tricks you can use to significantly improve your appearance and look more professional on screen.
At Worktank, we’re all about communicating, engaging and connecting. We’re really good at educating businesses on how they can use video solutions to do all three of these things effectively with their internal teams, external partners, clients and customers. But here’s the thing, it’s possible to do too much, particularly with regard to video meetings.
The impact from COVID-19 has been unfathomable, and even after it’s gone, it’s likely to have lasting effects on the corporate office landscape. Many companies are faced with the decision of whether or not to reopen their offices, or in the very least, they’re thinking about scaling back.
For years, Worktank has successfully supported many of our clients’ events using Zoom. The ease of use, integration features, and video-first focus have made it a go-to platform for public-facing “webinar” style events, as well as internal conference calls and team meetings. Its rise in popularity has been impressive, and not unexpected.
A virtual town hall is a valuable tool that allows leadership to communicate with employees from various locations. When done well, these virtual meetings build trust and confidence, and create a sense of community. But when they fall short, employees tend to “check out”, and perform other tasks while the town hall runs in the background.
Worktank has been a power-user of Microsoft Teams meeting tools from the first beta release, helping many of our clients move their All-Hands, Town Halls, and Senior Leadership meetings to the platform. Teams enables both low-friction virtual events, and high production-value workflows, and Worktank is all-in on the platform for connecting internal, distributed teams.
Over the course of your personal and professional life, you’ve probably seen some truly terrible presenters, and a handful of really great ones. While it might be tempting to try and mimic the best of the best the next time you find yourself behind the podium, chances are your attempt will fall flat. Why? Because you are not that presenter.
As collaboration and communication tools continue to evolve, another platform shift is taking place. Are you ready? Microsoft Teams is receiving full support from RedmondMag.com (the independent voice of the Microsoft IT community) as the future of collaboration. Internally, Microsoft is going all-in on the platform, and while it still has room to grow and improve, it has reached a stage of maturity to add value to your internal communications right away.
