M365 Virtual Marathon: Inclusive Meetings and Events in Teams

At the 2022 M365 Virtual Marathon I presented a session about how to run inclusive meetings and events in Microsoft Teams. Here I share the summary, slides and links to resources.


Virtual experiences start before we click ‘join’ and continue after we hit the ‘leave’ button. Use the features available to you in Microsoft 365 plan and deliver experiences that are engaging, accessible, safe and inclusive.

This session is for people who already have a working knowledge of Microsoft Teams but want to take things to the next level. If you are running virtual meetings, events, training, webinars and presentations then you will benefit from this session.
