Top 3 Advantages of Virtual Meetings

Meetings can often take quite a large portion of your workday, especially if they will be held offsite. You have to take time out to schedule your work for other priorities, make arrangements for traveling and also plan for a space that can accommodate all the participants. This might divert your attention from other important commitments that you have been handling. Virtual meetings can solve many of the hassles which are discussed in this article.

  1. Travel: The biggest advantage of a virtual meeting is that employees do not have to travel. Instead of it, virtual meeting software can be used along with a microphone and a webcam.
  2. Space restrictions: Every company does not have a meeting room spacious enough to accommodate all the attendees. For instance, if your company is planning for a seminar, instead of renting a space for around 100 people, it is better to invite all the attendees to a virtual meeting.
  3. Increases productivity: Arranging for travel and other associated tasks to attend a meeting may reduce productivity. Virtual meetings can be attended sitting at your workstations.

Four Ways Cross Cultural Training Can help You in Hong Kong

 Executives traveling to different parts of Asia from Europe are generally baffled by the cultural differences between each nation, which affects their productivity during initial interactions with local businesses. To improve their communication and performance in a multicultural environment, multinational corporates now encourage their employees to undergo cross cultural training courses.

Cultural values and business protocol

As a bridge between East and West, Hong Kong provides the perfect environment for people from both cultures to understand each other. With cross cultural training, executives from Europe can learn the values, protocols, etiquette and negotiation ethics of different countries within Asia.

Learn to deal with people from different cultures

Even though the average Hong Kong executive is cosmopolitan by nature and can deal business matters in a calm and efficient manner, the country has people from other parts of Asia whose values differ. Intercultural training can help you understand and respect these differences and also perform your tasks effectively.

Avoiding business disasters

In a competitive and fact paced business environment multinational corporates cannot afford to make costly mistakes during initial years of business. The multicultural work environment of Hong Kong makes it challenging and interesting for people from other locations to blend into its culture and work as a team.

Reduction in misunderstandings

Language and cultural differences can easily lead to distrust and misunderstanding between colleagues of different nationalities. But they can avoid this by undergoing cross culture training to understand each other better and improve business as a cohesive group.

Essentials of Virtual Conference

In today’s connected world, technology allows people located in different places around the world to have virtual meetings using software which removes hassle of traveling to meet each other. Internet based conferencing tools can help managers, customers, vendors and partners located in different parts of Asia connect with your head office in Hong Kong and stay updated about changes in the business environment. While conference calls between different branches and internet messaging is the usual mode of communication when several people want to discuss on a general topic or share information like sales levels, product challenges or troubleshooting, then virtual conference is the best method to connect.

What happens during virtual conference?

During virtual meetings people sitting in different locations communicate with each other via video conferencing facility at the same time. The virtual meeting infrastructure allows people to see each other and talk as if they are all in the same room, while they are staying miles away from each other. During virtual conference that is done across national and international borders, the required software has to be available at all locations to help them connect to each other. Besides software, appropriate hardware is also required to help attendees to communicate with each other like cameras, LCD screens and other necessary equipment.

Cosmopolitan Singapore and the Benefits of Language Learning

Cosmopolitan Singapore and the Benefits of Language Learning

Singapore has the unique reputation of being a melting pot of different cultures. Over the years, people from neighbouring countries like India, Malaysia and China all integrated their influences towards creating a global culture, all within the confines of one country. The people of Singapore are bilingual, with most schools offering English as a first language. In a country where the native tongue comes in three widely different languages, each with their own scripts, English serves as a bridge to communicate in educational and professional environments. Various signboards, public documents and information are all available in English. Working knowledge of either Malay or English pretty much guarantees that you can communicate freely with anyone you want.

The four most significant languages in Singapore are Malay, Traditional Mandarin, Tamil and English. Language learning is not a necessity to work, live or travel in Singapore. A language like Tamil in Singapore uses accents and dialects different from that in India. The benefits of language learning are important in that they open pathways to engage and interact with people who speak that language.

English and its influence on Singapore

In a country like Singapore, the process is made much easier by the presence of professional language institutions instructing in English. Since many people are comfortable speaking more than one language, it is also easier to find tutors who can guide you through language learning in English. As a culture with a tradition of embracing people from different backgrounds, Singapore can be ideal to begin learning and practising another language. With even television shows offering English subtitles on various programs, English is all you really need to communicate with people. Singapore is the ideal place to begin learning one of its local languages to enhance your knowledge and better interact with people from different countries. But for Singapore itself, a good handle on English is all you really need.

How the Right Conference Equipment Can Make your Event Effective

In a corporate atmosphere whether a conference is being held to address a local audience or an international one, equipment plays a major role in its success. Items like microphones, speakers, display monitors and headsets should all be in perfect working condition to avoid embarrassment to the participants at the event and the organizers.


These are the most critical equipment of every conference as only then the speakers can convey their viewpoints and discuss about the subject for which the event has been organized. There should be a combination of fixed and removable microphones in conference room so that other people that would like to raise some points vital to the discussion can be given a wireless microphone. Ideally the equipment within a conference room should be immune to interference from all kinds of electronic equipment.

Hidden speakers

To ensure that every word spoken by the presenters are heard by each person in the room, discreet speakers are placed in the room at varying distances depending on the number of people in the room. If the room is sound proof then listeners are protected from ambient noise and can hear clearly.

Audio/Visual equipment

Conferences sometimes require audio/visual equipment to engage the interest of their audience and make them understand the topics better. Creative media like projectors, plasma screens and multimedia equipment can enhance the presentation’s effect.
