Lots of business meetings take place every single day of a working week and often over weekends as well. We have folk trundling about from one part of the country to another for just such a purpose whether by car up endless motorways or by train – also requiring a car ride to get to and from the nearest stations. There is no doubt that this country has run efficiently and vibrantly on meetings but these days we do not need loads of people to uproot and move to one location. With modern communications and companies with the know how to make it easy, seure and cheap, we can have lots of meetings but everyone staying in their own offices – linking electronically, digitally.
When you consider the problems with climate change and the chorus of loathing from certain parties towards the diesel driving sector of the community, the days of travelling to meetings needs to change.
