WE JUST DON'T TALK ANYMORE.
Monday morning 9:00 a.m. Hurriedly, you grab a cup of coffee and assume your place at the mahogany table as the executive monthly meeting commences. Problems are hammered out in New York and Los Angeles; decisions are reached in London and Tokyo - all from your cushy chair. By noon, the meeting adjourns, and you return to your office with the afternoon free to tackle the next task. Ah, the joys of video conferencing!
The key to maintaining any relationship, communication is the lifeline. Bridging the miles, it strengthens family ties and aligns businesses binding us to those that matter most. The comfort from the sound of a loved one's voice, the excitement of the first pictures of your newest grandson - these are the events that shape our lives. When you can't be there to share in the moment, it's never more than a phone call or e-mail away.
In this technologically superior age, the world is brought closer than ever before. The explosion of information technology has revolutionized the way we communicate with each other. Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the workplace. With today's fast-paced business environment, the dispensing and receipt of information are vital for survival. Be it a one-room home office or an international corporation, the proper communications technology is essential to attaining success.
