It is great for mentoring other colleagues/professionals. I am not sure if it is HIPAA compliant so I have not held therapy sessions via the platform yet.

This is best suited for webinars where you want increase participant engagement. Maestroconference has helped us avoid the type of webinar where the presenter has no idea if people are listening and participants often lose interest and end up checking email. The interaction level can become extremely high leading to increased engagement, satisfaction and buy-in.

Pros

  • Easy for the audience to log on and participate via chat
  • Automatically records the session, in case you forget
  • Ability to upload slides and pre-load audience polls

  • The breakout group technology is phenomenal. It allows a large webinar to feel much more intimate and allows instructors to 'listen in' to small group discussions
  • The ability to poll, have participants raise their hands for questions or comments, control the microphones, see who's talking make facilitating a large group virtual presentation very manageable and interactive. The participants' attention is retained, and did I mention the breakout groups are phenomenal!
  • the social conferencing, where you can see a webcam or still picture of participants is also really helpful for increasing engagement and active participation

Cons

  • It's great that webinar attendees can choose to attend online or dial in by phone, but it is not helpful at all that Anymeeting announces the number of people dialing in by phone. If there are 25 people attending a webinar online while 1 person calls in on the phone, that person will hear an automatic announcement that currently there are no other attendees online.
  • It is great that the default webinar setting is for it to be recorded, but I wish there was no lag between the act of going live and the recording starting.

  • The only challenge I found with Maestro conference is that sometimes the break out groups function didn't operate as smoothly as I needed it to. People wouldn't always find themselves in groups or they would be switched from one group to another without the host moving them.

It works well, and does what it needs to, but there are a few flaws like the sound isn't great. There are fancier, prettier more expensive products that one could use, but this one does the job almost as well. Good value for the money.

If I go back to having calls where I want to have break out groups then I would definitely consider using Maestro conference again. For now this is not a service I need so I have not renewed with Maestro.

Alternatives Considered

They are actually really similar in functionality and features. If I were looking for an ad-free option for remote conferencing with high definition video I would choose GoToMeeting. But for my team where it isn't necessary to remove the ads, or have video available AnyMeeting meets our needs better than anything else

Maestro Conference is the only service I know that allows you to create break out groups and allow participants to actively engage with each other and with the host. It is the most like an "in-person" event of any service I have used. And the customer service has always been excellent

Return on Investment

  • Within our unit, we don't actually need to have remote conferences with clients or company big-wigs which would be the only reason we would need to purchase a more professional conferencing service. AnyMeetings' ad-supported services free up money for our team that we are then able to allocate to other software suites that are crucial to us.

  • The biggest positive impact I had with Maestro Conference was the ability for participants to engage with one another.
  • This made my group coaching calls much more engaging. Participants were able to talk with each other and be more actively involved in the calls.
  • Participants formed deeper relationships with one another because they could connect through smaller groups.
