Remote meetings can be awkward. And the start of any virtual meeting can be totally unpredictable which creates stress and anxiety…not good for business right?
When you tune in you could be left hanging with no audio, or maybe the host leaves you in the waiting room.

By the end of this episode, you will feel more confident and competent when you start any remote meeting. You’ll know what to do before you start, while people are tuning in and when to ‘start’ officially where you grab your audience’s attention, so they don’t tune out.
