Attend a virtual open house

Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 10:01 am

Shift Worldwide, a Chicago-based virtual communication consulting firm with Milwaukee ties, recently launched its Virtual Conference Room, a browser-based platform that fills the visual void existing in conference calls and virtual presentation tools, while reducing the high costs of business travel and office-based videoconferencing systems.

To celebrate that launch, Shift Worldwide is hosting a series of Virtual Open Houses that will showcase the capabilities of its Virtual Conference Room to individuals in the community for free.

"Virtual Conference Rooms are built for ease of use: one-click entry, no software to download and no hidden costs. Using our virtual conference rooms, you interact with an ease equivalent to that of a face-to-face meeting," says Paul Trout, chief executive officer of Shift Worldwide. Amy Westrup, chief marketing officer of the company, has established a Milwaukee office for the firm.

There are multiple available dates and times for the virtual open house: 

  • Monday, Nov. 9, at 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Nov. 10  at 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 9 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.

"Each conference room allows for 16 high-definition video feeds at one time, creating a psycho-social stimulus that holds people’s attention. Participants lose anonymity and the platform deters multitasking," Trout said. "By seeing one another, participants stay engaged and are more motivated to participate. Our platform creates an active audience focused on live conversation, not just passive presentation."
