An Online Chat to the City of Edmonton
A few weeks ago I did an interview, via Skype, for the City of Edmonton in Canada. The conversation was for part of a series called “The Way We Green”. They have now posted it online, and you can find it below (in two parts). I seem to be doing a lot of these Skype things these days, I did one yesterday to the Nova Scotia Planning Directors Conference which went very well.

Skype is an excellent way to communicate across boundaries. I regularly use it in 1-to-1 and conference-type meetings.
There are also useful and relatively inexpensive tools available that allow you to share files, run presentations etc in a collaborative way over the web. I’ve successfully used GoToMeeting (from Citrix) which incurs a monthly subscription but you only need pay for those months you are using it. It’s a brilliant and very reliable tool (and no, I don’t work for Citrix – just trying to reduce travel where possible!)
