What’s the No. 1 myth about hybrid meetings? Cannibalization of your face-to-face event. Back in 2012, the MPI’s hybrid meeting research found it was a top concern for 50 percent of event planners.

A new method of instruction is heating up classrooms thanks to the availability of creation and capture tools at the fingertips of faculty and students. Many traditional lecturing professors started experimenting with a technology-driven pedagogy that we’ve all heard a lot about by now — flipped classrooms.
Imagine finding yourself on an elevator with the famous founder of your company. Do you smile politely and ride it out? Or do you seize the opportunity and pitch him the big idea you’ve been working on?
If you’re Lawrence Grafton you do the latter. He pitched Michael Dell himself on an enterprise video initiative that would unify corporate messaging to more than 100,000 Dell employees and ensure that everyone, no matter where they are in the world, is speaking the same language.
