The following is a set of five tips we discovered from Richard Davies, Head of European employee communications, EBAY.
1. Win your audience every session – your brand is only as good as your last briefing. Hold yourself accountable for the time your audience invests in your meeting.
2. Coach your presenters to be engaging and work effectively with a camera. Give them meaningful feedback on their performance.
3. Ensure the content is the most important thing you are talking about each week. Explain why everyone needs to know about an item and if you can’t do that, drop it from the agenda.
4. Don’t let speakers run over their time.
5. Make sure people leave the room with a spring in their step.
