I’ve spent most of the last decade working from home.
From 2014 until early 2020 I was working for a US company, where initially I was the only employee in Europe. Inevitably communication was either asynchronous — via Slack — or by video meeting.
2020 has seen a step change in the way we communicate, and we’ve learned a lot about people’s shelving. But mostly, I’m still seeing a lot of scope for improving the way we use video meetings.
I think a lot of the fatigue we’ve heard people complain of is down to the lack of direct human connection, and it’s exacerbated by the way we use our computers.
So I recorded a small video of some tips I’ve found to improve the video meeting experience. A lot of the tips don’t require spending any money either…
