Workshop: Audiovisual communications to empower your organization
From the telegraph to email and instant messaging, every radical new means of communication has caused huge shifts in business communication practices. Video is now used widely: Skype, video-conferencing, training videos for staff-partners-customers, meeting repositories. It serves different purposes from HR training to digital marketing. Recording devices are now so accessible and getting smarter that it’s somehow their time. They can help an organization accommodate flexible working conditions, remember decisions, and communicate clearly and efficiently. But if deployed badly, they can be a time sink that alienates staff and deliver counterproductive results. This afternoon of peer discussion is an opportunity to compare business communication practices and think through what this technological near future means for you and your business.
