Time to take the next step

For reasons that I am not going to go into here I managed to miss a meeting, or actually two, last week. As I was not able to get to the place of the meetings we decided to stay where we were and instead try a software for online meetings that we had just discovered. Basically you make sure that the people you are meeting sit in front of their laptop, on broadband and with headsets (including microphones) plugged in. With the help of this software you are able to view each others screens and even control each others screens. Obviously when working on perhaps budgets or going through presentations this is invaluable as you are sure that everybody is viewing the same thing. But how about golf coaching? All of a sudden you can deliver a true live lesson where you can watch the same things in real time, talk about them, draw lines, make suggestions, view stats and share ideas, no matter if you are oceans apart. There are a number of different ways to easily send video back and forth over the internet, some of which has golf coaching facilities built in. Combine those with this feature and I am sure you have a winner.

And for me, perhaps I should plan to miss a few more meetings in the future…
