I must admit that I’d never even heard of Zoom until last week. I bet most of you don’t even know that before I was “the AHA Connection girl” I was a Project Manager for AT&T responsible for Cisco Telepresence video conferencing installations all over the world. I managed installations in South Korea, Turkey, Chile, United Kingdom and Costa Rica…just to name a few. So I wasn’t at all surprised to learn that the founder of Zoom used to be a “Cisco” guy. He’s doing alright now…and their stock is doing way more than alright….
I Zoomed with my AHA co-workers yesterday, my son has been Zooming with his DHS teachers/classmates for a week, he also had a Bible Study Zoom last night. My Bible study is planning to Zoom this afternoon and I Zoomed with my Fitness Together trainer yesterday afternoon while doing a workout in my garage!
It’s so simple and you can do it from your phone, computer, or iPad.
