Running Zoom Meetings: Breakout Rooms, System Audio, and Artifacts
On Monday I hosted my first public office hour with ~10 participants.
Not all roses, but some bright lights.
My main takeaways 👇
#1 Breakout Rooms Add Magic
Breakout rooms allow you to split a zoom session into 50 separate rooms.
Example: 100 participants -> create 10 breakout rooms -> = 10 rooms a 10 participants.
Why do it?
  • Break up the monotonous flow of a presentation
  • Add an interactive element for the participants
  • Encourage participants to network and collaborate in smaller groups
People learn by doing and solidify their knowledge by sharing with others.
I should have done more breakout rooms.
I only did one. ☹️
#2 Music Eases the Mood
In Zoom you can also just share your audio.
Cool applications of music are:
  • When participants join at the beginning of the meeting
  • When participants return from breakout sessions
  • When participants are asked to ideate/work on a task on their own (example: set timer to 3 minutes and let music play in the background)
🚨 If you plan to record your session you have to make sure that you don’t infringe on anyone’s IP via playing copyrighted music.
My solution: play creative commons music libraries like Lofi Radio 24/7.
Shoutout to my mate Alberto for the pointer.
#3 Artifacts Add Value
At the end of the session I shared something that participants could take with them: my personal documentation for the session
Why?
It adds more context/information than could be discussed in 60 minutes + adds value.
It includes:
  • Detailed content outline of the presentation
  • Meeting cost calculator for remote teams
  • Links to further reading
  • Best practices for remote team meetings
  • Meeting preparation checklist
If you are interested, I’m happy to dive deeper into it in the coming weeks. 🤔
Bottomline: A couple of good learnings but much room for improvement.
I will continue doing public office hours. Stay tuned.

The Master of Online Meeting Facilitation
My shoutout this week goes to Cam (yes, that’s his actual name).
I’m lucky enough to have had a handful of sessions with Cam Houser - entrepreneur by day and uni professor by night.
During our sessions he shared some of his best insights:
  • ALF Technique (= audio/lighting/framing) for good video quality
  • PIBS Technique (= prompt/ideate/breakout/share) for good meeting facilitation
If you spend a lot of time in Zoom you should follow this man.
Here’s a sample of his work 👇

I learned most of the good Zoom stuff from him.
Also, he’s just an all-around good dude. 🤠
