Paul Richards – the Business Development Manager of HuddleCamHD, a subsidiary of Haverford Systems in Downingtown – has written a new book to help businesses survive and thrive in shared, online work environments.
The Online Meeting Survival Guide: Learn How to Use Facebook, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Skype, and Zoom to Enhance Team Communication will bring readers up to speed on the latest online communication and collaboration technologies available to increase their personal and professional productivity.
Learn about the world’s most popular online meeting software, while understanding how to use the most effective features these solutions offer. From unified communications to collaboration and online meetings, this book is a welcomed tour of the world’s most popular online meeting solutions.
“Having been part of the video communications industry for almost 10 years, I understand how important it is to take a step back and highlight the many possibilities that exist within this powerful medium,” Richards said, citing his inspiration for the book.
The first part of The Online Meeting Survival Guide looks at the online communications industry from a high level to help readers better understand modern communications and online workspaces. In the second part of the book, business leaders and managers alike can take a deep dive into the top online communication solutions such as Google Meet, Facebook Messenger, Skype, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. The third part is all about productivity and best practices for online communications.
Finally, readers will get a glimpse of where online communications are headed and answers to some of these questions:
- When is a webinar better than a meeting?
- How does live streaming fit into a sales and marketing plan?
- When is collaboration counterproductive, and how can teams meet more effectively?
The Online Meeting Survival Guide draws upon the insights of Joseph Pine’s Experience Economy, Jonah Berger’s Invisible Influence, Morten Hansen’s Collaboration, and Malcolm Gladwell’s Tipping Point. The book will help anyone responsible for deploying online communications to be more effective.
Those who are interested in professional development can also take The Online Meeting Survival Guide Udemy course. This online course features video tutorials that will walk students through all of the most important topics discussed in the book, as well as helpful software walkthroughs from the author.
A free Kindle version of the book is available between Monday, May 25 and Thursday, May 28, and VISTA Today readers can also download for free at this link.
Also, HuddleCamHD is hosting the Presence Summit, a virtual event on July 15, that will enable attendees to amplify and share their value using video communications. Joseph Pine and Fatima Doman, both bestselling authors, will be speaking at the event.
