The sudden ban on all gatherings both large and small has had a huge effect on our lives. So many of the positive fibres in the fabric of our lives were stripped away; the birthday parties, business meetings, pub quizzes, conferences and meetups that had long given us a social outlet. Thankfully, the digital and virtual age we live in provided immediate solutions and opportunities. It seems like overnight so much of our lives shifted to the virtual realm, with video conferencing and virtual event platforms becoming the norm at the speed of light.
Creativity prevails in times of change, and there has been no shortage of creativity in times of coronavirus. People moved rapidly to find new ways of meeting, socialising, exchanging and even partying from home. Virtual gathering platforms have allowed us to stay social in a time of isolation.
To help you get creative about how you might meet, greet and celebrate from home, we’ve compiled a list of 10 ways you could use our avatar-based virtual events platform.
1. Conduct a business meeting or interview
“Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance, you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein
Life must go on, and so must business. Sure, Zoom and Skype are great for meeting clients or interviewing candidates, but sometimes they’re a little too personal. Especially if your home office includes children or even worse; inconsiderate housemates. It might be a good idea to swap the face-to-face for an avatar-based platform, which has some great benefits (including not needing to dress or groom for the occasion, we won’t judge.)
Why not even make it a fireside chat, for extra cosy vibes?
