Proscenium Makes Hybrid 2021 Leadership Summit a Success
These days, you’d be hardpressed to find a professional worker in America who hasn’t participated in a video call or virtual meeting of some sort. The pandemic accelerated a trend in digital workand now that companies have seen the utility, the workplace experience
But now, with more workers returning to the office either full or part-time, a new challenge is emerging. How will in-person and remote team members collaborate effectively? How will we bridge this gap and bring people together when some are in attendance and other aren’t?
The answer is the hybrid meeting
McCann Systems recently moved our 2021 Leadership Summit to hybrid and used our own product to facilitate the conference. While this may sound like a thinly veiled sales pitch, it worked even better than we anticipated.
Why did we go hybrid?
The decision to go hybrid with our corporate summit was all about reducing risk. With 40+ people traveling, sharing transportation, eating meals together and then all convening into the same space, the heightened threat of contact was clear.
Dramatically reduced any potential exposure and it just made sense to go this route with the technology available to do so.
Building out the space
The 2021 Leadership Summit ran out of McCann Systems’ Edison, NJ office. We built a full LED, conditioned, demo there and nearby leadership came in to host the interactive information and training.
For some of our team members, it was their first opportunity to experience Proscenium as an in-room participant and instructor. They’d used the platform before as a virtual participant but hadn’t run a meeting from the hub. The consensus all around was – “mind blowing.”
A big success
The results easily surpassed our expectations. There were big wins for productivity and everyone involved had a great time.
A couple benefits that really jumped out were the ability to record the meeting setting up breakout rooms to connect specific participants. For example, we were able to get sales & engineering together to talk directly in a way that wouldn’t have been possible without the hybrid setup and the Proscenium platform.
Full virtual or hybrid meetings using Proscenium are ideal for corporate training
Navigating the new virtual or semi-virtual workplace can be a lot for some employees. After spending (potentially) decades of their career learning the ins and outs of in-person conferences, meetings and trainings, flipping protocols can be tough. From social cues to expressing our engagement with not only the group’s leader, but also fellow participants
And that’s where really shines. There are no new protocols to learn. The environment is completely natural, easy to use, inviting and interactive. Display screens are placed in a way that makes you feel like everyone is the room. You don’t need to worry about where to look, because it’s so intuitive and just like you’re all together in the same space. The social the same in a fully virtual or hybrid meeting as they would be in person.
On top of it all, it’s completely secure and scalable.
