Make a positive impression via video conferencing

Wednesday, May 26 2010

Businesses are increasingly turning to video conferencing solutions to cut back on travel costs and build bridges with prospective partners around the globe.

When using video conferencing technology, it's important to remember that just because you aren't physically in the same place as all meeting attendees, you still have to give a powerful presentation.

There are a number of ways business executives can make a good impression via video conferencing, says NoJitter.com. To start, executives should sign on early. This will not only make it apparent that a virtual meeting is a priority, but it will give you the chance to set up the tools you need to make a presentation.

Another thing to remember to dress appropriately. Even if your office is business casual and you will be holding the meeting from there, you should wear a suit if the meeting merits it. Moreover, the source says you should avoid bold patterned clothes, as they may look awkward on a monitor.

Executives should also remember to carefully focus the camera beforehand. You want to be sure that the person on the other end can clearly see an entire presentation without having parts of it cut off on their screens.

With these tips in mind,executives can get the most out of their virtual meetings and hopefully score some new business partners this season.ADNFCR-3295-ID-19803029-ADNFCR
