Here's a list of suggestion questions:
- Now that everything is getting back to normal, are we still going to be meeting on Zoom and attending virtual conferences?
- Everyone talks about "Zoom fatigue," but I understand that you don't believe there is such a thing. Why do you say that?
- Can you share a couple tips on how people can be more persuasive and influential on Zoom meetings?
- Should people be made to have their cameras on during a Zoom call? I know some people hate that.
- There is a lot more to the virtual than Zoom. There's Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and a host of others. Which one is best?
