Here’s how our company grew in 2018 as compared to the previous year. We are really flyin’ and it’s all thanks to our customers.
Meeting Owl Meetings increased by 14x
In 2018, our customers had over 300,000 hybrid meetings (14X more than 2017) and met for more than 17 million minutes!
Reminder: hybrid meetings are those with both in-office and remote participants. #RemoteWin
Here are some interesting trends across all Meeting Owl meetings.
#1 day for meetings is Tuesday
Meetings happen most often in the morning in the United States
regardless of timezone
People in the room talk much more than the remote folks.
We need to work harder to include our remote teammates. However, remote and in-person talk time is more equal when there are fewer meeting participants.
People in the room talked 66% of the time
Remote participants talked 21% of the time
Participants interrupt each other 5% of the time*
*The remaining 8% of meetings are dead air or silence. Time to scribble notes, soak in the conversation, or admire a coworker’s workspace from afar!
I'm going to go on record to say that the #MeetingOwl is the single greatest thing to ever happen to videoconferencing. It creates a really seamless experience for those of us who work remotely. Thanks, @OwlLabsInc! pic.twitter.com/eOYe8TXigW— Greg Matthews (@chimoose) October 18, 2018
If you have remote meetings, I would suggest a @OwlLabsInc camera in your office. Really simple, plug it and it works!— Guillaume Simard (@GuiSim) October 31, 2018
As a remote employee, it makes my life much easier.
Little changes to help remote team members feel included:— Anjney Midha (@AnjneyMidha) October 29, 2018
1. Dedicated remote-team slack channel recapping all impt announcements
2. @OwlLabsInc 360 cam for all hands/ big team gatherings
3. Move recurring meetings to best intersection of remote time zones
Any other ideas?
