Executives across the world are finding they are spending too much time on business travel, so much so that they are missing anniversaries and children’s birthdays, according to a new study by Coleman Parkes research firm. And the worst part – these executives are still arriving late to the meetings they are sacrificing so much to attend, or even missing the meetings altogether.

The answer?  Video conferencing. The study points out that many international companies are now using video conferencing for meetings, and those without video are looking to invest in it so that they may experience the time and costs savings reducing business travel affords.
