So we move forward and we take a few steps back too…. For personal reasons I am isolating for whole of August. This is a preventative measure, but is a requirement I cannot ignore.
The initial experiment for arranging home visits online has now finished.
The experiment did not work, times got changed, and people are more or less comfortable needing a home visit, especially with limited outside space.
Only 2 of the online booking slots were used; a decision was taken to cancel the second round of meets due to distance and due to the gap between visits.
We will be using the diary events booking again in the near future – remember – if it is not on the portal, it isn’t happening!!
So as from 10th August ….All of my conversations and chats will be converted to Jit.si
You will receive a link and a phone call initially to tell you to check your inbox. All you will then need to do is click on the link.
This way of working needs to become the new normal. My link online is extremely stable. I can lip-read, I can hear better because of the IT equipment OCC have provided me, I get a friendly voice and a face to go with it! I prefer this as well, as our work phones we use are not user friendly.
Simon will be joining this way of working very soon.
My challenge…. If you are feeling brave, send me a jit.si request!
I would be delighted to see you, it is more comfortable than social distancing, masks and sanitiser for every visit, I have sat out in the heat, cold and rain and it is not a good way of working - I was exhausted.
Just think, I will never be late for another meeting!
