Top Tips for Online Speed Meetings

Tools The article suggests some tips for online speed meetings. Speed meeting etiquette should be interactive, focused, thorough and to the point in preparation and meeting flow. For speeding forward the meeting the facilitator should review previous meeting notes and electronic archives to make sure the meeting acknowledges earlier discussions and builds on them. The meeting facilitator should post the agenda for the meeting 24 to 48 hours prior to the meeting and request attendee input by a given deadline. A full-featured multimedia conferencing gives more meeting support tools than those offered by the average physical meeting room. Meeting should always start on time because of which latecomers become more punctual or lose team respect. Normal speaking time is about two words per second, which means, a focused 50-word, five-sentence contribution should take less than 30 seconds. Attendees should be asked to watch their computer clocks and keep input to 30 seconds. Meetings should end on time, leaving five minutes to agree on the next steps, assignments, and deadlines.
