Our own Kathleen Finato, senior vice president of marketing and business development, is today’s featured guest blogger on BusinessWeek’s Small Business tips blog. In the article, you’ll learn three common myths about replacing face-to-face meetings with conferencing.
“Myth 1: You always need to be in front of your customer in order to take care of business.
In a recent study by Wainhouse and InterCall, 56% of respondents felt that if more in-person meetings were replaced by conference calls, both parties would be able to get more done. Conferencing allows you to stay in your comfort zone and conduct meetings with anyone, anywhere. Being there can simply mean dialing a couple of numbers and making a few clicks.”
