Are you sick of spending all day in front of your screen? While it is convenient to conduct online meetings, it can also feel tiring not meeting people face to face. But love them or hate them, online meetings are here to stay. We need to find ways to make them work.

John Monks joins us to discuss designing better online meetings and interactions. We discuss how to create online meetings that energise and infuse rather than demotivate. We also teach you why simple exercises on limits and boundaries in these interactions can improve problem solving and creativity.
