First find out if they are even wanted. I don’t know about you guys but I’m zoomed out unless it’s for an important meeting.

Fair comment. No higher-ups attend these, so some of the pressure is off, but I’ll be sure to check with a few people before actually scheduling anything.

We usually breakout into breakout rooms and chat away at a few guided questions or topics. Found that activities don’t work too well

House party app?

Thanks. Thought of that but it only allows up to 8 people at a time, I believe. We’d likely need 15-20 to be able to join.

My practice has been doing fun things: 1) instructor led workout, 2) wine/cheese sommelier educated us while we had similar wine, 3) family storytime

Alright - workshopping this - let’s see what comes back : working for agency out of NYC, have shoot in LA, pretty important, really dependent on emotion from some “real people” with some product mixed in. ECD and I, naturally want to be there. Agency & holding company has a strong anti travel policy for Covid. Client less so - What’s the solve? Advice? Book through production house? Any other ideas? Trust in the almighty Zoom?

Please, I am looking for ideas to motivate a virtual class. We want to set up a rewards program. However, we don’t want to reward for what the are supposed to complete. We’re looking for above and beyond. Example; helping a fellow student with technical support. We also thought of homework passes & lunch with a teacher, because we are a virtual school independent study program. We see students for a short amount of time on zoom. It takes a lot of work to set up the videos and lessons.

Asking the newbie question ... I’ve been at the same agency I got my start in for 2.5 years now. Just got an offer for a heck of a lot more money and the new experience I was looking for. How do I put in my notice? It feels especially strange in ZOOM world... Appreciate any advice on navigating order of operations with 3 different bosses and HR

My husband is a watch guy. Found him a Tudor BB GMT today. (Cut me some slack if I didn’t describe that just right. This isn’t my world.) I had no idea this was going to be one of those things where retailers hold back items for those deemed worthy. I eventually got the jeweler to offer me the GMT I thought he’d like but only after being told twice that they 100% did not have one. I’m both proud and mildly annoyed.

Is anyone going else confused and upset agencies are making people go back into the office? Commuting is horrific and wastes time, and honestly I work more efficiently from home without distractions. All for the option to go in, I just think it’s super tone deaf to make people go in again. The world’s changed. Don’t move backwards.

Had a very early call with the client and foreign lawyers this morning. One of the other country lawyers couldn’t use my telecon number, so I had to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting. In pajamas, no makeup. Firm’s Zoom has no option for the organizer to start the meeting with their camera off for some reason. Client and other lawyers are all female, and they all turned their cameras on in solidarity. I love the supportive women I have the pleasure to work with. Any other Zoom WFH war stories?
