Video-Conferencing Done Right
Successful video-conferences do not happen by accident.
Proper planning is both essential and professional.
Here are a few easy ways to improve the quality and productivity of your meetings.
- Stay focused. Do not multi-task. It's obvious, and indicates you are not engaged.
- Own your environment. Manage your background noise, and what others see behind you.
- Maintain eye contact. Look at the display and camera.
- Join early, and be certain you hang up when done. Late arrival implies disinterest, and post-conference comments heard by all can be awkward for everyone.
