New Meeting Hub
We are delighted to launch our brand new Meeting Hub, the most advanced virtual meeting platform in the industry!
Good communication is vital in business and this has been exceptionally important since the COVID-19 outbreak with many people working remotely. Our bespoke system has been designed to enable our Members to connect more easily so that they can maintain their strong working relationships.
A project has come up and there is not time for a long back and forth email trail? Our powerful new interface enables our Members to quickly schedule a virtual meeting with their UFO partners at a mutually convenient time (with time-zones automatically considered) via WhatsApp, Zoom, Google Meet or Skype directly from their mobile device.
Our Members can find a company by country or company name and then go to Staff and select who they wish to get in touch with. They will see full contact details and a box where they can click Request Meeting. The details will automatically appear in their Meeting Hub where it will remain red until the meeting is accepted.
Each entry contains all the information needed for a successful virtual meeting including who is responsible for starting the call, the chosen communication platform, ID address/details, notes – everything our Members need in one place!
Virtual Meeting Events
Every 6 months, the UFO team allocate a series of consecutive days where all Members are invited to participate in virtual meetings (at no extra charge). The perfect opportunity to follow-up their face-to-face meetings.
The next virtual event will be in December 2021 - a great opportunity to 'see' each other again after the challenges of the past year.
Our next gathering will take place in Croatia from 26-28 September 2021 at Hotel Croatia Cavtat (read more).
Meeting face to face is important for our network and we don’t want to miss another opportunity to reunite. We are confident that we can safely and successfully put on a great event for those who would like to attend after such a long time apart. We are in regular contact with the venue reviewing our safety planning and ensuing that all official protocols and guidelines are followed. We know from experience that a network like ours sees increased business after meeting in person. This is especially important after the impact the COVID crisis has had on our industry …. there is much to discuss!
Here is where our Members manage all their meetings including Virtual Meeting Weeks, Face-to-Face events ... plus any Spontaneous Meetings.
UFO President/C.E.O. Rachel Crawford says “The past year has been incredibly challenging and we have seen new ways of working emerge. It has become clear that the workplace impact will not be a temporary one and that we need to adapt to stay competitive and to ensure business continuity.
With this new Meeting Hub, we are ready to take on the new future together with our Members."
