There are times where you just can’t make it to the meeting, but in these current times we live in, we have technology that allows us to be in places that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to. There is Gotomeeting.com, Skype and even FaceTime all of these are good ways of video conferencing.
Rottier, J. (March 8th 2017) Video Conference. Caledonia, Michigan.
I tend to stick with either Gotomeeting.com or Skype, they have both been very reliable and just my personal preference.
With Video conferencing you have a chance to network with people in person (sort of) I have made great connections with people from video conferences from around the U.S. I began with just conferences with people in the front offices of the Detroit Pistons, then the Colorado Rapids and now its bloomed to people in Kansas City to New Orleans. Video Conferencing allowed that to happen, so get out there and give it a shot see where it could lead you and the people you may meet.
