Ross Dawson has workers collaborating on projects all over the world.

"We have a global team of designers, developers, writers and project managers," says Dawson, chairman of consulting and publishing company Future Exploration Network.

Improved communication tools such as video conferencing and document sharing software have contributed to the rise of the virtual meeting and allow business owners and managers to deal with staff, manage projects in several locations, and meet clients without leaving their office. And of course, the old-fashioned telephone still plays a major role.
