On being a great meeting attendee
Staying engaged during meetings
Attendees, please follow these instructions:
- Bring your own notebook for the pre-reads
- Turn on your webcam, even if you’re in a room with other people. It helps other participants better understand what you’re saying AND keeps you focused.
