Video Conferencing Etiquette: Crack a Joke
At Pipeline Video Solutions, we know you can put your best foot forward in online meetings with proper etiquette. Today we continue our series on video conferencing do’s and don’ts to help you ensure that you’re on your game when you’re on a web conference.
Be yourself and enjoy the call
Relax. Being engaging and even funny can help call participants stay engaged. Don’t let the meeting get boring, but stay on topic.
Don’t interrupt other speakers
Wait for an opening in the conversation before putting in your two cents. Cutting other speakers off is rude. It’s always a good idea to pose questions via the messaging system so the call leader can answer at the appropriate time.
Like mom always said, simply be courteous to other participants. Be nice. Be punctual and introduce yourself before speaking so that everyone knows who’s talking and can address you by name. Take note of the other speakers so that you can also address them by name. Don’t show disinterest by texting and don’t interrupt. And call your mother to thank her–after the meeting–for teaching you good manners.
