The Coronavirus has totally changed the way we conduct business and in this age of social distancing videoconferencing has come up as a productive alternative to in-person conferences. Making use of a streamlined videoconferencing platform enables an international team to stay connected, productive, and engaged.
The pandemic and the resulting lockdown have limited our movement, placed restrictions on international flights and group gatherings which is why most government and private organizations are encouraging the employees to work from home on a rotational basis. The leading entrepreneurs are scrambling for new ways to operate their businesses, and in such a scenario videoconferences have come up as a useful communication mode that allows people to stay connected with their colleagues, peers, clients and partners.
Connect and collaborate
The primary objective of Globalia’s Annual Meeting is to bring all the members under one roof so as to create a congenial corporate environment to foster collaboration and better working relationships. However, this year meeting in person will not be safe or feasible because of health concerns and therefore a web conference will present a perfect opportunity for the members to get together and do their business talks without compromising on social distancing.
It can be almost as effective as an in-person meeting
Despite the fact that nothing can surpass the efficacy of an in-person meeting, the one-to-one virtual meetings are our safest bet for 2020. Remember that this meeting will not be like an ordinary video call over Skype or Zoom. We have created a special videoconferencing platform that will allow you to make a maximum of 32 one-to-one videoconferences of 15 minutes duration with partners previously chosen by you. Bringing together all the agents in one platform, at one time will also bolster the sense of solidarity within the network.
Enhanced accessibility for all the agents
The most important reason behind the increasing popularity of virtual conferences is that they help to do away with all hindrances to participation. Pandemic, financial concerns, safety concerns are no longer an issue – all you will need is a stable internet connection and your laptop and you’re all ready to talk business with chosen partners representing 254 cities across the world.
Your sole networking opportunity for this year
Because of the Coronavirus, 2020 didn’t give us a chance to meet in person at Doha but that doesn’t mean that our networking will come to a halt. Thanks to the technological advances we will be able to conduct our meeting virtually without leaving our home or putting ourselves at health risk.
Saves time and expenses
Additionally, the web conference will help all of us save a lot of time and money. There is no need to get away from work for a few days and fly all the way to a foreign country to touch base with your partners. The online conference will ensure that not a single dime is spent on flight fares, hotel rents, visa fees and other accompanying expenses. This means substantial savings for your companies.
Even though the efficacy of an in-person meeting is unparalleled when it comes to proper networking, this year we have to settle for a virtual meeting. This is the most effective way of moving your businesses ahead in times of the pandemic and keeping this in mind you need to set a definitive agenda and get ready to take advantage of this opportunity. Although the impact of the still raging Coronavirus has been all-consuming, finding the silver linings will allow us to move forward for a better future.As we have already finalized our First Virtual Meeting to be held in October 2020, today’s post will be all about the various advantages of online meetings.
