“A key point we work on is that virtual meetings have many similarities to face-to-face ones. The trick is to transfer your face-to-face skills into the virtual environment so that you can overcome the limitations of remote conferencing. We’ll look at the challenges you’ll face and the strategies and language you’ll need.”
