Team meetings on Zoom can sap the life out of even the most motivated leader. Chris Grimes a motivational comedian, and communications coach will help you put some Zing back into your meetings.


It is 8.57 am, you are about to launch another daily stand-up.

You look at yourself on the screen,  hover over the “connect” button and think to yourself……….

  1. “It is a great day and I am ready to motivate my team,”
  2. “Does anyone else find these as de-motivational as me?”
  3. “I am not sure how much life-force I have left to be sucked out of me through the webcam”
  4. “I hate these, but I will fake it until I make it”

The reality is that you have probably had all these thoughts over the last 12 months.

You hope that a return to the office or a hybrid way of working will end your online meeting nightmare.

But, deep down you know that virtual team meetings are here to stay.

So how are you going to stay fresh, alert, upbeat when you feel very different.
