Video conferences are a great new way for businesses to save time and money. Between 60% and 75% of your communication is nonverbal. This means that our posture, body language, facial expressions and eyes are actually more important than what you say. It is no wonder that businesses have relied so heavily on expensive face to face business meetings, even if it meant flying employees half way around the world and putting them up in expensive hotels.
Today's video conferencing technology has forever changed the possibilities for business meetings. Video conferences may not completely replace the experience of shaking someone's hand or sitting in the same room with them, however they offer a level of intimacy and communication far greater than telephone or email communication. By enabling people in a meeting to see each other, regardless of their geographical distance, participants are able to read that 60% to 75% of communication that is nonverbal. And communication is the key to productive business meetings.
Video conferences have other benefits as well. They can connect people from multiple points around the globe. They do not require the type of advanced planning that goes into arranging flights and hotel bookings associated with traditional business trips. Overall, video conferences offer a far more efficient alternative to face to face business meetings.
Video conferences are also used to unite family members, friends and even lovers who often live in disparate locations. This helps to bridge the distance between people, making them feel closer and strengthening the bond between them. Video conferences are all about strengthening relationships by overcoming geographical barriers. Whether it be a business relationship, family, friends or lovers. Video conferences are changing the way we communicate by giving people the ability to see others in realtime regardless of distance.
