LifeSize Video ‘Transforms’ Business Life Of US Venture Capitalist
An entrepreneur and venture capitalist in the US has been talking recently about how video conferencing has completely changed the way he conducts day-to-day business.
Brad Feld believes that over the past 25 years around 50-75 per cent of his business time involved travelling. He now says his life has been “transformed” since he decided to cut out travel entirely and replace it with video conferencing.
Specifically, he’s been using high definition video conferencing technology from LifeSize to conduct face to face meetings over the internet instead. Whereas his previous experiences of trying to work through video conferencing had been hindered by compatibility issues, often ending with him resorting to using consumer tech, with the LifeSize setup Feld’s been able to host high quality, multi-party video calls to collaborate and communicate with his company’s colleagues and customers.
Calling the switch, “the ultimate productivity trick”, Feld notes in a recent blog post that cutting out all of that travelling time means he’s now more productive and healthier too.
“I feel as if I’ve been doing the best work of my life,” Feld said, “It has been incredible – so incredible that I’ve decided not to travel for business at all in 2014”.
