Webinar Kick-off ChecklistBuilding trust.

You've organized your team, picked your topic and selected your speaker(s). Now, you want to take the time to meet and get everyone up to speed, get their buy-in, and more importantly, establish yourself as a leader. The kick-off meeting builds trust among the ensemble, gets them motivated, and ensures they take ownership of their roles and responsibilities.

The Kick-off Meeting Checklist (at right) contains guidelines for meeting preparation, meeting agenda, and post-meeting action items.

BEST WEBINAR DAYS OF WEEK: Tues., Wed., Thurs.

BEST START TIMES: 10 – 11 a.m. PST, 1 – 2 p.m. EST

If you take care of all the smallest details ahead of time, you’ll keep last minute fire drills to a minimum:

  • Get everyone’s landline, email and mobile phone numbers (there may be an 11th hour fire drill).

  • Set up a virtual repository for sharing work plans, presentations, head shots, etc. Some tools include Dropbox or ShareFile.

What do you do in your kick-off meeting? Did we miss anything? Let us know.
