Why I will drive 2 hours there and back for a one hour family business meeting meeting

I have yet to find a effective substitute for face-to-face meaningful conversations. I am often asked why I don't use Skype or similar as I travel a lot for one or two hour meetings.
This week has been one of facilitating difficult and sometimes robust conversations with different families in business and a NFP business group.
To capture the emotion in the room in family business meetings it is absolutely essential when dealing with diverse individual family members. There can be no cookie cutter approach and sitting face-to-face ensures trust and empathy for all involved.
Without conversations there can be no way reach an agreed position , especially when compromise is required by the parties involved.
