How often should your team escalate? Likely more often than they do! It can be effective to use fast and friendly escalation to resolve conflicts and make high-velocity decisions.

In these situations, your teams could easily spend weeks or even months on debate and negotiation without results. This interactive course demystifies escalations and covers “why, when, and how-to.”

How to Design & Setup Video Meeting Rooms for Hybrid Working

Video Meetings have become a necessity in today’s world and have become a lynchpin for Hybrid or Flexible working arrangements. Video is increasingly pervasive in organizations of every size and type due to compelling improvements in AV quality, flexibility, ease of use, and affordability—plus the simple fact that face-to-face collaboration through video conferencing is the next best thing to being there in person. In the post pandemic world, modern video meetings are a game-changer, allowing remote workers and distributed teams to talk face to face, share files and screens, and whiteboard. Businesses that do not adopt the new way of working with Video Conferencing will fail to build relationships with the new supply chain, miss out on creativity and productivity that thrives on better communications between employees, and will be less agile and innovative.
As adoption rates steadily increase, so do expectations about the overall video meeting experience. This presentation will cover the key points on how to setup the perfect video conferencing solution in all sizes of rooms.

Get the Best of Both Worlds with Hybrid Technology

With COVID-19 peaking in 2020, companies had to decide on how to keep their businesses engaged. It is imperative to keep the communication & collaboration going among all the relevant stakeholders without disruption. With changing times & trends, people settled for a different video conferencing solution that was readily available to keep the business going, however these solutions had their own issues & threats in terms of security and other technological challenges.
In today’s hybrid world people need not be in the same room to accomplish a common task. With hybrid solutions, you get the best of both worlds – the advantages of meeting in person & technology that allows people to tune-in virtually from the safety and comfort of their home. Hybrid solution is the future and is here to stay. Corporate and Education spaces have changed on a foundational level. Both office space and classrooms are required to equip with technology that is versatile and flexible for remote and in-room participation. It is time to adjust your existing workspace and education infrastructure with effective Hybrid solutions to create a safer, more flexible and engaging business/learning environment.
