Video meeting technologies are providing new formats for business communications that make everyone shine--and rightly so.
iMeet, a new video meeting tool I evaluated, received the prestigious Edison Award's silver in the Media/Visual Communication category for best new innovation in Business Communications. Edison Awards are built on Thomas Edison's heritage of America's innovations in the global economy.
Putting the shine on business communications in video meetings is no small task. Borderless Executive Search, a firm I recently profiled demonstrates video meetings can be effective for executive candidate screening. In fact, this topic raises concern whether technology may actually replace in-person meetings.
While communication experts agree in-person meetings are needed in particular situations, video meetings may be a good substitute. Everyone seems to agree on conducting video meetings like an in-person meeting. Video is the necessary component for better virtual meetings, which may or may not include video.
The larger issue of enabling teams in geographically dispersed locations to work better together can be solved. Best practices in the enterprise are applicable to human resources and sales organizations to conduct meetings with teams, clients, and potential employees.
Global network connections can be steps away. Facilitated through cloud-based video meeting technologies, alternatives are available that also save time and resources as well as cost of travel.
Business communication practitioners have a new tool - video meetings - to vitalize conversations using only a web browser.
