Hi, I’ve got a question:
how do you make people feel like they’re part of the group, rather than an online individual?

Do you have any tips for facilitating meetings where people are both, in room and online?

One of the clasical questions that sparks participation is to ask what country are you connecting from? o which part of your house or office are you connecting? People love to share that. I do it in cloud format and try to comment many of them, live. That has worked for me. Thanks. JQ
