Not long ago, I was talking to the president of a local chamber of commerce and it was obvious that the chamber needed some kind of way to quickly deploy advanced information to members. But how could they do that, I wondered? Well, could it be that offering teleseminar could be at least one more opportunity to spread the word? I mean, of course, the camera should be using social media, email alerts, and all its normal forms of communication, but a teleseminar surely works wonders for mass dissemination of information. Okay, let’s talk.

It seems to me that perhaps the chamber needs to have all its board members on board with distributed satellite offices, using their various businesses as points of origin for general members and for meetings. In addition, each must hold teleseminar-type meetings between their various groups and committees. Such tools should be used by local community groups of all kinds, but put these tools in the hands of entrepreneurs, people who are used to getting things done and not just talking about them in groupthink type committees and it would be amazing if they could. . do.

Why suggest teleseminars? Well, because it gives the person running the system more control and prevents unintentional interruptions. It also allows more people in a meeting than a normal tight-knit group could have, and yet it is still very efficient and productive. Also, keep in mind that by allowing questions at the end, it doesn’t need to be repeated over and over again in smaller meetings, thus allowing everyone to have the information at the same time, putting everyone in the group on the same page. In addition, it allows people who are afraid to ask questions the opportunity to do so, and others who are afraid of an answer to questions they did not ask.

Lastly, I’d like to point out cost, environment, and overall efficiency. No need to mess around with lunch, pay for parking, or deal with traffic. This obviously improves wear and tear on everyone’s car and saves fuel and travel time. It would be hard to disprove that face-to-face meetings are sometimes appropriate, but why not harness the power of teleseminar for your chamber of commerce activities? You’ll look brilliant for suggesting it and then people will tell you how smart it is to do it that way. Well that’s it for now, but I hope you use this advice wisely. Consider all of this and think about it.
