Industry Professionals for Virtual and Online Meetings
Virtual Meeting Moderators, Virtual Event Facilitators, Online Hosts
While there are many different titles used, the goal is the same: Using skilled professionals as temporary staff to augment an in-house team.
- Increase the capacity of an existing team
- Minimize overtime, nights and weekends when moderating virtual events
- Increase flexibility by utilizing an on-demand virtual team
- Hire specialists experienced with the virtual “on-site”.
Virtual meetings come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they happen quickly with shortened planning cycles when flexibility is key. In that situation, being able to scale up and down quickly is essential, especially with ever tightening budgets. In other instances, planners are overseeing numerous virtual events while also acting as the facilitator during the meetings. Unfortunately, that’s almost impossible to do well if there is a high volume of events. Virtual event staff from GCG Event Partners can ease the load, execute the meetings, and be trusted to do the job well.
Virtual Meetings Are Leading to Increased Workloads
Monitor, Moderate, and Facilitate Multiple Events
With increased workloads, however, planners are also expected to monitor and moderate their virtual meetings in addition to doing their core job. Often, it’s simply not feasible.
Planners are having an increased need for assistance with meeting tasks, much like they typically would with in-person events.
The Role of Virtual Meeting Facilitators
Unique Virtual Meeting Needs
With planners having their own individual styles for their events, the needs for every event are a little different. A moderator’s main role is to make sure a virtual meeting proceeds as planned. Sure, there are some common responsibilities:
- Open the meeting
- Troubleshoot issues
- Introduce speakers
- Open breakout rooms
- Facilitate Q&A
- Handle background logistics
