When I was in the apartment business we had them all the time and most of them were so stupid that I spaced out, so I am feeling you pain.

When I have worked in politics and we had them, I very much had to pay attention.  Half the time they were on video calls so everyone could see everyone.  Then again, I was more interested in those and alot of the time I was very involved in contributing.

Depends. We usually only pay for one seat so it’s usually at someone else’s desk so I have to pay attention!

Otherwise sometimes I just listen along and keep working.

I have to “go” to them all the time.  Most of the time they are really f-n boring.  I wish the speakers would at least try to liven things up a bit!

It depends on the topic. Sometimes we’re invited more as a courtesy, to give us a heads up on what other depts are doing, so if that’s the case I usually listen for awhile, then maybe do other work. If it’s something that involves my dept and that I may have to relay to someone else, then I pay attention and try to take notes. They really aren’t that exciting either way.

Some weeks I am in webnars all the time.  I zone out sometimes. Sometimes I pay attention if it is interactive or if I know I am going to be asked something.

I feel like webinars are often a waste of time. They’re too “one-sided” for “participants” to really remain engaged, in my opinion.
