Jim Salih

Jim asked, “Do we want to turn off the individual profiles of everyone on Zoom while the speakers are speaking? Or would we rather have live people in the background?” 

Jim mentions during Toastmaster contests all participants’ screens are off except for the individual speaking.

Jim suggests, “Maybe this is something the club can think about, and maybe in a couple of weeks SCTM can have an informal poll.”
