Here are our tips for surviving the good, the bad and the ugly of video calls over the next few weeks.
1 - Select a good video conferencing software
2 - Make sure to have a stable internet connection
3 - Dress properly (slogan t-shirts are fine, but PJs are another realm)
4 - Send an agenda prior to the conference
5 - Keep time zones in mind
6 - Get rid of any distraction (...silence the dog with a juicy bone)
7 - Be acquainted with video conference features
8 - Never speak at the same time
9 - Think about your backdrop (NB - hide your clothes horse/Buffy the Vampire Slayer boxset)
10 - Look at your camera lens, not the screen
The more you do video calls the more comfortable you are - we are all in the same boat at the moment and video calls are great for recording conversations to future reference.
Time to embrace the video.
