    Teams are tired of virtual meetings and events! Here is why…

    A survey by Twingate reported in June 2020 that of 1000 remote employees interviewed, 40% experienced mental exhaustion from video calls.

    The forgetting curve graph

    Virtual workshops should have lasting impact, otherwise…

    • Your team will feel their time has been wasted
    • You end up with lots of ideas with none being actioned
    • Attendees forget most of what they learnt by the next day
    • You wasted your money!

    Why badly delivered virtual meetings are energy-sucking!

    • No break from screens
    • No engagement, easy to be distracted and do other things
    • Harder than face-to-face conversation
    • Use of the wrong technology causes barriers
    • BORING!

    Virtual meetings boredom

    You want to fire them up not burn them out

    Doodle surveyed over 1100 U.S. employees, 38% said virtual meetings can lead to them being exhausted and 30% said they caused stress.
