Conference Call Suggestions

These conference call suggestions might not apply to you, but they certainly affect you. Like a fly on a movie projector, even the littlest thing can cause an entire group to get distracted (or frustrated!) Conference Call Etiquette: 10 Tips

  • Keep multi-tasking to a minimum.
  • If you talk fast, try slowing down.
  • Speak clearly and exude energy. Your voice is the only thing you have to keep everyone’s attention.
  • Speak directly into the phone. If using a microphone remember that being too close will sound distorted and being too far away will sound quiet.
  • Call from a quiet location. Even printers and phones in the background can be distracting.
  • Use the mute button when you’re not talking or need to sneeze.
  • Avoid bad phones, bad headsets and speakerphones. (Speakerphones pick-up all sorts of background noise!)
  • Announce when you leave and return from the phone.
  • Avoid too much paper shuffling or typing.
  • And avoid gum, chips or any other food while on a conference call.
