There is no doubt that virtual technology has been a godsend in keeping business operating during a global pandemic. They will clearly form a much larger part of day-to-day business operations but they will never fully replace the need for people to come together face-to-face.

Face-to-face definitely has more benefit to certain types of activity such as:

  • Meeting new clients/buyers
  • Strategy meetings covering a longer time period (financial year/quarter)
  • Planning new initiatives
  • Team building activities

For smaller, day-to-day meetings, virtual will definitely play an increasingly significant role in the future but you should consider which of your activities would benefit more from face-to-face interaction.
