Annual meeting with remote participation from Australia

Last week, during the annual meeting within the Swedish section of the National Healthy Cities Network they wanted Professor Evelyne de Leeuw from La Trobe University in Melbourne Australia to remotely hold a lecture and participate in a discussion afterwards.

Compodium took full responsibility for this and placed a video conferencing equipment in the conference hall of ‘Kulturens Hus’ in down-town Luleå. Dr de Leeuw used Compodium’s virtual meeting software client and was able to successfully attend the conference from her home and also took also part in a highly appreciated discussion after the actual lecture.

– Compodium made it possible for us to view professor de Leeuw’s lecture from a warm 32C Melbourne, says Barbro Müller – peoples health strategist at the Luleå municipality, and the discussion with her after the actual presentation was also highly appreciated, she continues.

– And I did not need to consider any of the technical concerns, Compodium took full responsibility for everything and it all worked perfectly!
