Botree Beats Zoom Fatigue with a “forward-moving flow for even the most passive audience”

Updated: Sep 10, 2021

Botree prides itself on trying new things and adapting to challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes to the workplace. Most of us are eager to return to normal, however, future trends point toward a continuation of online meetings. With our Virtual Facilitation service, we have been able to provide engaging virtual meetings and presentations for our clients.

Over the last year, we have been experimenting with new technology and activities to perfect online content delivery. We’ve been working with businesses from many different fields to help them engage their audience in virtual meetings.

We recently discussed the Botree virtual approach with our clients, Central Ontario Broadcasting (Rock95, 107.5 Kool FM, Indie 88, Barrie 360). We facilitated our training sessions with them virtually; utilizing multiple different technologies and activities, including a virtual speed dating activity.

Prior to the sessions, The Central Ontario Broadcasting team reported that they had “Zoom Fatigue” and virtual burnout. We asked a few questions to Dave Carr, General Manager/ VP of Programming, and Kelly Letourneau, Marketing Consultant about their experience with Botree’s virtual services.

Botree: You recently participated in a virtual program from Botree, how was the experience for you?

Kelly Letourneau: Fantastic! I learned a great deal about myself, my colleagues, and how best to communicate with each of them.

Dave Carr: Outstanding. After completing the first half of our program in a classroom setting, I wasn't sure how a virtual version would engage. With the options of both verbal and written activities, the virtual experience actually allowed for increased participation with our staff. All sessions had an easy-to-follow flow and maintained engagement throughout.

Botree: In your opinion, how did Botree's Virtual Training avoid virtual fatigue?
