9 Tips to Leading Interactive Meetings in Teams
Teams is much more than just a site where you can see each other remotely. Discover how to make your meetings and events truly interactive in this two-hour live online session.
Happy's Live Online Learning sessions are interactive webinars. The facilitator guides learners through the material, encouraging participation and interaction.

You must be confident using a mouse and keyboard, and navigating around a computer. You should ideally have used Teams before.
Instead of the old, dull physical meetings dominated by one or two people, discover how you can involve everybody and become more focused with Teams.
This session will leave you confident in being able to create an interactive online meeting that will make you never want to go back to a physical version.
What you will learn
In this interactive two-hour session, you will learn:
- See People
Keep slides to a minimum. Interact with people in the room.
- Use Chat
Get responses from everybody, encourage questions and get people to check things offline without having to intervene.
Create polls with Microsoft Forms on the spot to find what the overall view is.
Get people to physically put their hands up or display reactions.
- Share your screen
Tips on best practice when you share your screen
- Sharing PowerPoint slides
Use PowerPoint in an interactive way — not just sharing your screen
On the whiteboard or on any document, people can annotate and express their views.
- Use shared documents
Teams enables you to switch to Word, Excel, Jamboard, OneNote or anything else that takes your fancy. Get a clear viewpoint from 20 people in two minutes, no need to have everybody speak to find out what they are thinking.
- Breakout Rooms
Put people into breakout rooms so everybody gets a say. Use chat, move people around and recreate a different set next time.

Looking for a private group event for your team, or even your whole organisation?

The Small Print
The course will run remotely for two hours. All learners will need to have an Microsoft 365 for Business account and Microsoft Teams installed. Full technical requirements are on the Microsoft 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 installed MS Teams 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.

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.
