(a) Using Dynamic Content "Event Start Date Time"

Flow save failed with code 'OpenApiOperationParameterValidationFailed' and message 'Input parameter 'item' validation failed in workflow operation 'Create_a_Teams_meeting': The parameter with value '"@triggerOutputs()?['body/start']"' in path 'item/start/dateTime' with type/format 'String/date-time' is not convertible to type/format 'String/date-no-tz'.'.

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Create_a_Teams_meeting' inputs at line '1' and column '22105': 'The template language function 'convertToUtc' expects its second parameter to be a time zone matching the time zone indicated by the timestamp. The provided value '(UTC+00:00) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London' is not valid or does not match the timestamp '2020-11-30T14:00:00.0000000Z'. Please see for usage details.'.

The 'Z' in the timestamp in indicates that the date/time parameter that you are providing is already in UTC.  Try running your Flow without converting the date/time to UTC.  Some systems, such as SharePoint, store all dates and times in UTC.
