Remote Perspectives from John Hayes
Having worked remotely for over 15 years, the last year didn’t have much of an impact on my day-to-day work life, but I know it was a big change for staff at many of our client partner organizations. It’s been really impressive how nimbly you all adapted to the shutdown, and our team has been so impressed by the virtual events produced by our clients.
Throughout the last year, ROI Solutions’ staff have attended and presented at virtual industry conferences including NTEN, ANA, Bridge and the public broadcasting conference, PMDMC. We also created a variety of new opportunities to connect with clients and facilitate client connections with each other. Our Quarterly Business Reviews have been a wonderful opportunity to connect and look beyond the day-to-day jobs and projects with a longer-term vision. We also have some great sessions coming up from our Putting the Pieces Together webinars, our Ask Me Anything!?! series and we are in the planning phase of our High Touch Roundtable coming this fall.
But nothing beats seeing our friends and colleagues in person, and we’re cautiously optimistic that we’ll be able to start attending in-person events this fall and start scheduling client visits again. I, personally, look forward to putting on real clothes again and enjoying time with all of you.
