Conference Talk with ConferencePlus

Welcome to Conference Talk and thanks for stopping by! Our blog takes a closer look at all that is conferencing. Highlights include information on audio, web, and video conferencing as well as dedicated posts on how to plan and execute successful webinars, webcasts and online events. Conference Talk is a place where you can come to get up to date industry news, learn about trends in conferencing technology and share best practices. We invite discussion and feedback, and hope that you join our conversation!

Our recent Ask the Expert webinar, "Selling to your customers who don't have time to see you" prompted me to write this blog. During that live event, presented by Chris Lytle, it was interesting to see how Chris kept the audience engaged by asking right questions at the right time.

Many large enterprises have attempted to deliver conferencing services throughout their organization by investing in on-premise audio or video conference bridging equipment. In most cases this decision is made to eliminate transport costs incurred with using hosted services delivered by a service provider.

There was a time when webcasting was underutilized and was just limited to corporate training sessions or annual general conferences. Today, savvy businesses are finding creative ways to leverage the power of an engaging and inspiring webcast to build brand visibility and efficiently reach a large audience.

We all could probably fill volumes with the business know-how that we didn't learn in school, from how to deal with different personalities to say when you realize you've left project meeting notes sitting on the kitchen counter. How to run a stress-free, results-producing teleconference would probably make that list.
When I first entered the conferencing business, I found myself wondering - what's the difference between a webinar and a webcast? So it's not surprising that many people who are not familiar with conferencing platforms are confused by the different "web event" terminologies used in conferencing services sales and marketing communications.

Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse and Snowzilla are some of the words that media has been using to define the Chicago snow storm that we experience on Feb 2, 2011.

I watched the sky turning rusty red from my window. The wind gusts were upwards of 50 MPH with zero visibility. Next day, when I tried opening my front door,I couldn't because --there was a 6 foot snow drift in front of my door! Half of my little abode was buried under the snow.

As more and more people begin using conferencing as part of the standard way to conduct business - the question is posed, what are the do's and do not's of conducting a conference call?

Yes,I do mean conference call etiquette. Like table manners, there are some manners required while conducting a conference call. We seem to have business etiquette for introductions, making presentations but for those who are venturing into webinars and demos via web conferencing or video conferencing - how can we ensure a professional conference call experience?

I've got to be honest; it all started when I came across this article "Improve Your Voice, Improve Your Sales". I frequently get some interesting comments when someone hears me over the phone without first meeting me. It starts something like "Umm... you sounded very mature when I first heard your voice" or "Oh well you sound very serious" or I have heard something like this also "When I first heard you, I thought I am talking to someone very senior but you turned out to be much younger".
