    Virtuoso or Zoombie: Which One are You?

    Most of us have participated in so many virtual meetings by now, but is the experience getting any better? What keeps your attention and what’s distracting? In this fun, interactive and somewhat outrageous session, join Brad Weaber to learn how to elevate the virtual meeting experience for attendees, speakers, and organizers. We’ll review everything from camera positions, lighting, and audio to clothing choices and backgrounds. Be prepared to share your experiences and opinions, but not your nostrils!
