Alternatives to Expensive and Time-Consuming Air Travel

Let’s face it, these days, business air travel is a costly proposition—it’s expensive and takes up valuable time.

And, travel time is only increasing due to the recent attempted terror attack, as widely reported in the press.  For example, as explained in a recent Montreal Gazette article:

Massive lines, flight delays and cancellations greeted Canadian passengers traveling to the United States on Sunday as new security measures moved into a second day and another suspicious incident was reported on board a U.S. flight, increasing tensions.

Weather delays aren’t helping matters either, now that we’re in the midst of a long, cold winter, as detailed in this Chicago Sun Times article:

A messy winter storm — which could bring up to a foot of snow…— caused major headaches for travelers…prompting more than 500 flight cancellations at  both city airports.

One way businesses can avoid the time suck of costly air travel is to utilize innovative alternatives to face-to-face business meetings, such as video conferencing, screen sharing and online document sharing.
