In preparation for a free training event on online meeting technologies Kevin Smith, CEO of Isle of Wight Chamber met up online with Andrew Cripps, President and CEO of Isle of Wight County Chamber in Isle of Wight County in Virginia, USA. The technology team at Isle of Wight College were on hand to ensure that the practice session all ran smoothly. The practice session highlighted how easy it is to meet up in real time and transact business in a face to face way without the need to travel. The free training event is being held on Monday 29th February 2016 and places are free for individuals who work or run organisations in the public, private or voluntary sector on the Isle of Wight. Effective business is all about relationships and social interactions with customers and suppliers. This involves in the main face-to-face meetings yet the time and cost of travel around the Isle of Wight and to the mainland impacts on business efficiency.
