Better a virtual board meeting than no meeting at all!
There’s nothing better than a face to face meeting, the shake of a hand and the sharing of ideas is best done in person. However sometimes time constraints or unforeseen situations arise what used to mean a postponement. That was in the past – before the investment in our IT Structure! Now by using our new technology there is no barrier to a successful meeting.
Case in point today, our monthly scheduled board meeting could not be attended in person by all. However, Wes Dowding, our Operations and Technology Director, simply said – “no problem, we simply link through our office 365 portal, have a video conference and share screens with each other to share documents as necessary”. So that’s what we did!
The ease and productivity of the meeting was not effected and there was a time saving as travel was avoided, releasing more time for other things (like sharing this information in a blog!).
The only negatives were that Wes received excellent tea service from the Client Services Team, whilst Margaret and Robin had to fend for themselves, and that the headsets don’t suit everyone!
