David F. Carr's workshop on hybrid meetings

Hybrid meeting lessons from Club Awesome Toastmasters, a workshop replay

Club Awesome’s David F. Carr, DTM, explained the advantages and tradeoffs of hybrid meetings — and how to make yours more successful — in this district training on July 29, 2023.

Holding Toastmasters meetings in a hybrid in-person online format has many advantages, but doing it right is not necessarily easy. Remote members may feel left out if they can’t see or hear what is going on in the room. Maintaining in-person attendance can also be a challenge if members think it is easier to hop on Zoom than hop in the car and get to your meeting place.

In addition to technology challenges, there are leadership issues to consider to make sure that both in-person and remote attendees get the full value out of a meeting.

David F. Carr, DTM, is a worldwide authority on the productive uses of technology by Toastmasters clubs and districts. He shares lessons learned the hard way, as well as lessons learned from others, about how to make hybrid meetings an excellent experience for everyone.
