How to Run Efficient Online Meetings with Zoom for Your Business or Nonprofit

Monday March 23, 2020 2:00 PM EDT

Zoom provides a great, economical option for hosting online meetings, but it’s a mistake to think everyone will instantly understand how to use it to get work done. In addition to mastering the technology, getting coworkers, collaborators, partners and everyone else you’re meeting with up to speed on the etiquette and social issues of interacting online is not necessarily easy.

Join David F. Carr, author of Social Collaboration for Dummies and founder of Online Presenters Toastmasters (which holds weekly online meetings), for this free webinar. To hire David to give a briefing to your organization, email him and include “Zoom training” in the subject line.

Digital Transformation Articles for The Enterprisers Project

The editor of The Enterprisers Project Laurianne McLaughlin, who I previously worked with at InformationWeek, recently recruited me to write a series of articles on digital transformation topics.

See https://enterprisersproject.com/user/david-f-carr

This publication has a single sponsor, Red Hat, but my reporting for it is straight journalism. These are the sort of useful, practical articles we strove to publish at InformationWeek (at its best) about savvy applications of information technology. I don’t cover Red Hat competitors, but I don’t promote Red Hat either.

As for the subject matter: Many in the industry roll their eyes at the words “digital transformation,” given that computer systems have been digital all along. Still, those words are a useful shorthand for the possibilities (and competitive threats) arising from the proliferation of web, mobile, social, cloud, AI, and more all working together to transform business and the economy.

Digital transformation is not necessarily about technology, or not technology alone. Technology creates opportunities, but true transformation requires that technology and business leaders recognize the opportunity to create business models and execute well against that vision — not necessarily flawlessly, but learning along the way. Those are the people I seek to interview.
