Conference-call confusion can bury a business deal. Get it right every time by anticipating any possible hiccups – it will showcase your problem-solving skills. And yes, pants are mandatory.
1 Be Professional
Choose an attractive, well-lit room and sit close enough for your contact to see your midsection and a bit of space above your head. Dress as if you were meeting in person.
2 Have A Back-Up
Skype freezes sometimes. Make sure you handle it smoothly. Mention at the outset that if problems arise you will send a message via the chat function instead.
3 Keep Your Focus
Don’t look at yourself on the screen – it’s distracting and you’ll appear shifty. The only places you should look are into the camera or at the other person.
