Event Details

Text-based communications, telework and e-commerce have transformed predominantly direct, in-person encounters to virtual and often retrospective experiences. Online technology can also open huge gaps in terms of interpersonal communications. Are your business processes effectively aligned for such change?

This month's presenter, recognized as a most influential blogger on this topic, will join us by webinar to directly demonstrate the mastery of key connection issues across the new distributed workplace. He will explain:

• How organizations have historically excelled across space and time
• What is different now and current technological solutions- or failures
• Choosing the right technologies for your circumstances
• Best practices for competitive advantage in this new environment

Come prepared to log in with your questions and ideas.
