Janet is the executive director of a non-profit calledHats4Homes
Hats4Homes is a non-profit that provides shelter and subsidized housing for at-risk youths in her area by leveraging the sale of ethically sourced wool caps and scarves. Janet is proud to say that her enterprise has helped a lot of people in her community, and has grown stronger as a result, but Janet is constantly running from one appointment to another because of the nature of her work.
When you’re the executive director of your own non-profit, you’re always on the go.
Earlier this morning, Janet just received permission to put up a sidewalk booth during an upcoming street festival that could bring a lot of attention to her cause. She has waited a long time to get the city’s approval, and now she has to act fast in order to get her team coordinated and ready for the event.
There is only one problem… time.
How Free ScreenSharing saved the Day
Janet usually meets with her volunteers in-person to whiteboard ideas and plan marketing campaigns, but they are too far away to hold a meeting on short notice. She considers holding a meeting with the few people that can attend, but she needs all hands on deck for the upcoming festival, and any miscommunication in planning might cost her the entire event.
Janet has tried to use technology to bring people together in the past, and it has never worked. She can’t afford to make any mistakes right now.
There is just no way for Janet’s team to meet — but time is running out, and she needs a solution.
Thomas is taking his kids to Hockey practice, Annette is out shopping for her dog, and Jerome is waiting in line at the dentist’s office. So what’s an executive director to do — just wave her magic meeting wand and get everyone together despite the distance?
Erika, the new girl, suggests exactly that. She says that FreeConference.com can help Janet’s team connect remotely, and she also swears that it will be so easy that anyone can do it.

In less than an hour, almost all of Janet’s team members have all joined her call. Most volunteers have joined via their computers using Janet’s unique access code, and a few others are connected through the free mobile app. Thomas has even called in from his kids’ hockey game using the dial-in number provided in the invitation!
