Chairing Remote Meetings
This two-hour session will look at how to chair remote meetings. With most people working from home, we will consider how to facilitate productive and enjoyable meetings that achieve the purpose for which they have been arranged. The course will focus on the use of Zoom. Courses for other online learning tools can be also arranged.
This two hour session will be delivered online through Zoom. Happy's Live Online Learning sessions are interactive webinars. The facilitator guides learners through the material, encouraging participation and interaction.
Bookings for this two-hour workshop are available at the special introductory price of £95 per person, with equivalent discounted rates for charity and public sector workers. Please note, this is a time-limited offer.

Group Learning Events
If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.
We can tailor the content to your team, and host the workshop inhouse at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.
The Small Print
All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.
Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time, to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.
Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.
The happy Guarantee
We want everyone to go away from our courses feeling as though they have learnt useful, practical skills that they can use straight away when they go back to work.
If you don’t feel that your training has been useful or if you are unhappy in any way, just get in touch with our Customer Services team within 30 days of the course. We will be happy to offer you additional support and training free of charge to help you to gain the skills you need, or if you’d prefer, a full refund.
