Efficient and Effective Meetings

Virtual meetings have increased in demand and popularity in recent years following the pandemic, and as such the effectiveness and efficiency of these, if not all meetings has come into question more.

From staying on agenda to making sure everyone has the platform to speak in a professional manner without talking over each other has been a challenge. With our Sales Manager, Mark Atkinson, we have taken a look at some key areas to help you stay of track and make the best use of your time.

Our last event ran in 2020 the week before the world went crazy and we were confined to our homes to work with only one hours exercise permitted per day outside the home.   Fast forward (not fast at all in real terms but a long old slog) a little over 2 years we were delighted to be able to open the doors on another Universal AV Services Technology Event.

During the pandemic, many of our forward-thinking customers consulted with Universal AV Services on how best they can use technology to support the new hybrid working model. With so many organisations working with a mixture of on-site and remote staff, never before has technology been so crucial to the working environment.

Looking back to last year’s event and the technology that has helped a country communicate and learn during a pandemic.

This time last year we had just finished our annual technology event in Leeds for customers and were wondering what the future held with the news so focused around COVID. Little did we know that we were about to be in a yearlong lock down.

Changing landscape of work and the use of technology Part 2 - The New Normal

It seems like a distant memory since colleagues were able to meet together in the same room, online meetings have become commonplace. With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout well underway, we are all optimistic about a return to ‘normal’ life. Although the new ‘normal’ may be a little different with everyone being in the meeting room at the same time possibly something of the past.

We need to look at new ways of working and this may include being back in the same room, it may be a complete shift away from this with many employees requesting to work from home, or more likely a combination of the two and a Hybrid model, combining the benefits of flexible working, with the benefits of spending time together in the office.
