The New Face of Business Meetings

Oct 11, 2007
We have been conducting meetings for ages now. Meetings took place in our personal lives, as well as during our day of work. Seminars, conventions, conferences, or simply, gatherings and discussions -- various kinds of meetings offered people a chance to be heard.

In the days gone past, people would necessarily have a meeting ground that was set apart. But then, that was back in the days when people with similar needs and topics of discussion did not live too far away. Those who lived far away would most likely have different attitudes and a different set of priorities.

Now, let us fly off to the world of today. Times sure have changed. We are increasingly making contact with people who live not just in different towns and cities but in different time zones, and on different continents. We can no longer claim that people who live far from us share none of our interests. The various social networking websites that have proliferated imply a different truth. We share many interests with people of varied backgrounds who are situated many miles away from us.

On the business front also, people, in general, have much in common. Two employees of the same organization, who are stationed miles away from each other, will still have an interest in seeing their organization prosper.

Business people, from all nations have one goal in common -- that of maximizing their profits and minimizing their expenses. In order to do this, objectives and targets awareness must be imparted to the staff. Sales pitches and presentations have to be made to clients. Given the way in which workforces and clients are scattered across the globe, getting everybody to gather at a single site may be a hassle. As a result, business organizations have to turn to modern business solutions.

One of the most popular solutions to the problem of conducting meetings in the world of today is the conference call. Conference calling allows people on one side of the globe to get in touch with those who are miles away.

The problem of transporting people from one place to another is eliminated as everyone can log on to the meeting without getting up from their work chair. Moreover, conference calling has changed a great deal recently. There was a time when only audio conferencing was a possibility. However, these days, more and more companies are availing of the video conferencing facility. The need to work fast overpowers all others. Hence, every company wants to squeeze the most value out of their working hours. Conference calling is a way to do the same.
