Google recently announced that as a global company they will be working from home all of 2020. And this seems to be the way forward for many organisations in the near future, which means meetings will continue to go virtual. However, by now we have been in enough number of Microsoft Meet-ups, Google Hangouts, Zoom meetings to know that virtually doesn’t necessarily mean easy.

No matter what the issue, there is technology to your rescue and working from home doesn’t have to be a struggle with the inevitable. Take a look...
