Chicago, IL  — Laura Schwartz, was proud to emcee the virtual Verizon Media board meeting in the Fall of 2020. From the in-house studio of Laura Schwartz Live, Laura created an interactive and informative approach to this virtual board meeting. Using the virtual platform, Bluejeans, of which Verizon acquired in 2020, the meeting was both innovative for its content and technology for cloud based meetings.

“Not all “board” meetings need to be “bored” meetings!

Virtual meetings can be just an engaging as in person programs and with the incredible team behind the scenes we were able to achieve just that. It was an honor to be involved.
