What We Shared: Staying Connected When Remote

I wanted to give a quick run-down of some of the tips that were shared during this afternoon's Virtual Happy Hour, because somebody (me) neglected to record the session.

Lynn Nissen shared an interesting take on the name tent icebreaker in which participants apply codes in the upper corner of their name tent to quickly indicate relevant information about that person.  In our exercise, we used Zoom's rename feature to indicate employment status, years in training, and comfortability networking.

For example:  Paul V E 23 ':(

LinkedIn has innovated ways to utilize their app to strengthen your networking power, and Rebekah Hartman expanded that to the virtual realm with this interesting tip.  Use the LinkedIn App to generate a LinkedIn QR Code.  Save that as your profile picture.  When you stop your video in Zoom, your profile picture (now that QR code) will appear, and folks on the webinar who might be interested in connecting with you can scan that.

I'm a big fan of QR codes to connect people with information.  Using them to connect people with people is brilliant.

Those were two out of several great ideas for strengthening your online networking game.  Today's was a spirited discussion, so much so that we'll be repeating this topic at the start of each month for the foreseeable future. 

See you then?
