New Networking Tools
My staff and I have returned from the largest RL event in the world, RLA Conference & Expo in Las Vegas. We had over 500 people attend, which accounted for 234 companies. Networking was the unsolicited theme throughout the conference from our RLA Community that gives everyone updates in the palm of your hand, to one another’s schedules, to our evening receptions.
Some of you might have noticed that in each session the video screen had a red blinking light to indicate that the session was being recorded. We have employed a filing system for recording each of our sessions for the last 2 years. But what you might not be aware is this same Cisco WebEx system allows RLA to stream our conference & workshop sessions around the world. Most if not all of our sessions had RLA members and customers watching and hearing the sessions live at their office/home. We started to experiment with “streaming video” over a year ago, but this was the first time we made it commercially available to our clients.
For the question and answer section of the presentations, now for the first time we get questions via those who are watching live. You might have experienced this in our committee meetings or Webinars in the past. Again it is the same Cisco WebEx system that makes it possible. If you would like to relay the details to a colleague of what was said in a session you attended, then just order the recorded session.
If the RLA Conference & Expo in Amsterdam is too far a reach for you to attend, consider “streaming” the conference live to your team at the convenience of your offices.
