Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen the viral video of Professor Robert E. Kelly whose live BBC News interview gets interrupted by his two children - in case this is news to you, we have a copy of the video for you. :-)
Even though this video ended up being loved by many because of its realness and the adorable kids, there are a number of tricks that could have prevented this.
With all the ongoing technological improvements, video conferencing has slowly inserted itself into our lives and has become a common way to communicate in a professional setting, whether it is for a client meeting, an interview or just to stay in touch with colleagues who are working from home (or vice versa). A video conference call is different from a regular call because it helps you stay meeting focused and organized, brainstorm and find solutions to problems instantly and create a better connection with your interlocutor, but it is just as important. Whether you are a professional or not, chances are that you have already had to take part in a conference call, at least once.
