As many organisations move to a more hybrid way of working, a key challenge is how to conduct effective hybrid meetings (where some participants attend in person and some attend remotely). 

First of all, think carefully about how to have hybrid meetings, and whether any upskilling is required. Hybrid meetings need careful facilitation to ensure everyone has an equal experience and opportunity to contribute. Without an effective approach hybrid meetings can lead to something called ‘presence disparity’, where those attending remotely have a poorer experience than those who attend in person.
