All MBF meetings are now going to be held online until the COVID-19 meeting restrictions are lifted or eased enough to get back to face-to-face meetings
For the meeting on 3rd June we are going to use Zoom and see what participants think of it. It should work well, given its ease of use and ability to allow presentations as well as discussions to which all attendees can contribute. In addition Zoom have been working hard on making sure that their meetings are secure. However, it will be a learning curve to moderate discussions and for participants to “raise a hand” to get their turn to speak.
It’s important that MBF takes a lead in using new technology which members need to use to keep their businesses going during the lockdown. It’s also likely that many meetings, which once were held face-to-face, will move permanently online.
