The conference call has now become one of the most used, most helpful and most maddening parts of our professional lives. Here’s a great little video translating the odd behaviors of the conference call into real life. Happy Friday.

1 Thought on "The Joy of Conference Calls"

John Cleese has a very funny series of training videos which include ‘The Conference’. Not at all dated and highly recommended.
