With the increasing prevalence of virtual teams that span the globe, multicultural audiences are becoming more common. Meeting leaders must be poised to meet the unique needs of these groups. One of the key roles of any meeting facilitator is to create a safe environment where all participants feel valued and included.

This webinar will not review technology platforms to support virtual meetings but will provide specific facilitation techniques that are effective and applicable in a variety of meeting situations. If you’re leading a multicultural team, these best practices will improve your effectiveness during your next meeting.
