Q – Interesting and honest responses to other questions lead me to ask you if you know of any services that will make my life easier as I travel the world and frequently have to call in from abroad? I would also like to video conference from time to time. As a CFO in the pharmacology field, I need to set an example in terms of frugality so Io guess I’m asking what is the best way to keep in touch on the cheap? But it has to work.
A – There are now multiple options for keeping in touch on a wide variety of platforms. But here is a quick summary you may wish to discuss with your IT people:
01 – If you spend time in a single country, a separate cell phone with a local sim card works best.
02 – If you travel all over there are services such as Telestial.com that deliver a phone package that works in more than 100 countries at substantially lower rates than you would pay with an American carrier.
03 – Don’t discount SKYPE. It keeps getting better because WIFI is available nearly everywhere and you can video conference for an amazingly low price.
