Take Audio Conferencing Along

By: Nahshon DeMore

When was the last time you went on a vacation? What's that? You're swamped with work and the idea of spending some time in an idyllic beach paradise sounds impossible? Far be it from me to sully your ideas of perfection in a corporate drone, but there is a way to get around that little problem. You can finally have your cake and eat it too.

Bridges In The Sky

We are all connected. That phrase used to be in the realm of poetic license. Today, it's reality. Sometimes, it's an annoying one. It seems you can never get away from the constant barrage of cellular phone calls, e-mails, and text messages. You wake up in a cold sweat from nightmares of being chained to your desk with invisible techno-tendrils that creep into your nostrils to...well, you get the idea. All this means you probably will never go on another vacation in your life, right? Wrong. Audio conferencing is the tool that will let you take control.

Turn It Around

It is precisely all this interconnectivity that will allow you to enjoy the finer things in life once again. Mobile technology has developed in leaps and bounds and you can be connected practically anywhere in the world now. It has never been easier to stay in touch with the office to keep yourself abreast of that latest killer merger. But what about all those meetings you're going to miss?

Today's organization is not only paper work and bean counting. There's a lot of communication and interaction involved. Countless hours of strategy planning and marketing meetings. Endless nights filled with preparation for team presentations the next morning. Missing all that not only keeps you out of the loop, it deprives your team of a valuable cog in their machinery. Audio conferencing is the solution. You can be there without, well, being there.

While sipping a daiquiri on the shores of Tahiti, you can be on your cellular phone using audio conferencing to apprise your team of your latest brilliant idea. This may incur the potentially fatal envy of your teammates, but hey, whoever said life was fair?

Take That Vacation!

So now, no more excuses. Book that skiing trip. Go crazy in the outback. You can finally take a well deserved break from the daily humdrum of office life and not feel guilty. Think of all the brownie points you will score with your bosses when they find out you've been diligently attending meetings even while on vacation. They will be amazed at how much value they are getting out of you. Imagine. You're still being the resourceful, responsible, and loyal executive that you even in your precious free time.

If that don't beat all! In any case, downtime is an important part of any career. You wouldn't want to be burnt out before conquering your company's top post now would you? With audio conferencing, you have the best of both worlds. Business in fun and relaxing surroundings. Ain't life grand?
