i2VCs and COVID-19
Immersive, Interactive Virtual Conference™ (i2VC™) and COVID-19
In these days of constrained budgets and limited resources, there’s the ever-growing demand for an agile workforce that’s equipped to communicate, collaborate, and interact with effectiveness, efficiency, and in many cases, immediacy. Compounding this dilemma are the bottom-line impacts from responding to other inevitable changes, be it from the environment as the result of climate change, or from new health crises such as the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
All these disruptions can be extremely expensive, especially if they are not planned for. For instance, here is a timely quote from Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at a recent news conference in the US: “Disruption to everyday life may be severe”. She went on to warn that “Schools could be closed, mass public gatherings suspended, and businesses forced to have employees work remotely.” This is extreme, but are you prepared for this? Are you ready to quickly respond to unexpected workplace changes? Can your business or organization demonstrate agility, resilience, and adaptability?
Even without the specter of a potential crisis, organizations struggle with creating shortlists of conferences to attend, especially when they are used to a consistent presence in the marketplace or habitually attend key domain-specific events. While difficult to quantify, the benefit of attending conferences, seminars, and workshops is invaluable, and the lack of visibility and credibility from not being present is potentially devastating. Today, as never before, companies and agencies alike confront the opposing objectives of providing for professional development while addressing diminished budgets and keeping their staff and employees safe.
With the forced change in the way we do business today and in the future, organizations like yours are looking for ways to continue meaningful interaction in their geographically dispersed teams. They are searching for a means to foster growth, development, and professional networking, as well as ways in which they can continue to contribute to their respective evolving bodies of knowledge, all while managing their own corporate knowledge base in a sustainable, flexible, mobile, accessible and risk-free manner.
