Unleashed - How to Thrive as an Independent Professional

Mar 15, 2020

Our guest today is Umbrex member Susan Drumm, a BCG alum and the CEO of Meritage Leadership Development.

Susan has extensive experience in running virtual meetings via videoconference, and in today’s episode she shares a set of tips to make virtual meetings more effective.

Susan is publishing an article on this very topic tomorrow, March 16, and you can find that article and more of her writing at

If you find some value in this episode, I encourage you to check out Episode 65 of this show, in which Susan provides tips on facilitating high-impact offsite events. In that episode our discussion focused more on content, which in today’s discussion we focus more on tactical aspects of running  a virtual meeting.

In today’s episode I suggest that someone on each meeting be designated to send a recap email; I discuss recap emails in more detail in Episode 203.

I also mention the real-time polling tool Mentimeter, and to learn more about that tool, check out Episode 53 in which I interview Johnny Warstrom, the CEO of Mentimeter. To get your own account, visit
