How To: Follow Up A Remote Meeting

Follow-up on your remote meetings

In order for a meeting to be effective, every person needs to log out with a clear objective. They need to understand ‘what’s next’. The key things everyone needs to know are:

  • New date: When the next meeting or check-in will be

If you were the host, keep in mind that an important part of meeting follow-up is about checking in with attendees to see how well the meeting went. You can do so through a casual one-on-one conversation or even sending out a simple (and anonymous) feedback survey. 

Hearing from attendees may give you ample ideas on how you can make future online meetings even more inclusive and efficient for everyone involved.
