Set the table: Jim visiting again because he’s at home and Ryan and Leslie haven’t worked in brick and mortar for a while. We know virtual and small business. Jim knows formal office

 

Segment 1: Phones

 

Ryan: Not obsolete are they? But rules have changed

 

  • More purpose driven and shorter.

  • Usually scheduled via email or text

  • Practices developed about timing of calls, like when it was just phones, a call after 9pm meant emergency

 

Segment 2: Email and text

 

  • Text, just don’t in the office. 

  • Email. Length, type, subject line, reply all

 

Segment 3: Video conferencing

 

Ryan: so many fails out there now. Clothing, bathrooms, backgrounds, 

  • Assorted tips
