“Can everyone please mute?”
Have you heard or spoken these words during a company all-hands or virtual event? Or struggled to switch presenters and screen-sharing access during a meeting? Or scrambled to get everyone the same virtual background for consistent messaging?
Hosting a virtual event, large-scale presentation, or company-wide all-hands requires more control and polish than your standard Zoom meeting. That’s why we have Zoom Webinars and Zoom Events. One of the most significant advantages is controlling the narrative and maintaining engagement. Webinars are typically structured presentations with a designated speaker or panel leading the discussion — audience members get to listen without appearing on camera.
This format helps minimize the risk of distractions and tangential conversations, allowing participants to stay focused on the key points being presented. Integrating features such as screen sharing, slideshows, and multimedia elements in webinars helps to ensure that the content remains dynamic and holds the audience’s attention throughout the session.
