One of the outcomes of the events of COVID-19 has been increased attention on video conferencing as a means of eliminating or reducing the need to travel. The issue of safety has been added to the previous cost-benefits of reduced traveling time and costs; time can be spent more productively. Increasingly, these benefits have made video conferencing more popular as a means of bringing people together - across the country and around the world. Here’s how to make sure you derive maximum value from your next video conference... 1. Arrange service provision.

Conferences, seminars, and workshops are acknowledged forms of training, information-gathering, and networking. They are usually short, practical, and up to the minute.

Your attendance and participation are investments in yourself, so don’t leave preparation to the last minute or allow ‘emergencies’ to limit your pre-event preparation… Study the agenda, and focus on what you want to get out of the event.
