5 good reasons to try video conferencing

1. Time management – just think what you can do with the time saved from travelling to that important, but time consuming, meeting.

2. Environment – you can feel satisfied you have minimised your personal carbon emissions; it might not be a huge impact but it all counts.

3. Financial – you will save the money you would have spent on travel and possibly accommodation and that’s money that can be spent on something more productive.  In addition the meeting organiser won’t have to provide you with catering so you won’t eat that chocolate biscuit you didn’t need anyway!

4. Reliability – as the winter approaches and bad weather becomes an issue, you know you will still be able to attend that critical meeting without risking getting stranded for hours in the snow.

5. Productivity – all of the above combined will enable you to be more flexible and increase your productivity.
