“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. 



Produce all-hands like a pro


Our new production studio for Zoom Events makes adding pizzazz and polish to your event even easier. Need the same (dynamic) background for every presenter? Check. Need to switch between pre-defined scene layouts depending on whether you have a fireside chat, a presentation, or an announcement? Included. Need a backstage area for presenters to check their audio and video capabilities and align on the latest tweaks to the narrative? Already set up for you. 


And, of course, you can record every webinar and make it available to your audience afterward — with automatic transcriptions, smart chapters, and password protection if needed. So it’s easy to distribute the news to the entire team, regardless of if everyone can join the live session. 

Let us show you what Zoom Webinars and Zoom Events can do for your company. Get in contact and ask for a live demonstration
