Love them or hate them, meetings are the lifeblood of many businesses. Whether face-to-face, online or a combination of the two, interacting with our colleagues and customers in a formal meeting is not going away. It is where great ideas are formed, problems are solved, and lucrative business deals are struck. We are having more meetings today than ever, with many of them held virtually. No longer constrained by having to be in the same place or needing expensive video or audio conferencing facilities, tools like Skype, WebEx and GoToMeeting have made meetings easier to organise than ever, further cementing the role of the meeting in today’s business culture.
