Despite what you may think conference calls aren’t just limited to corporates. More and more businesses are now choosing telecommuting which means coordinating and cooperating through conference calls. It’s likely you’ve gone through a few in your life as well.
Have you ever wondered what your conference call would look like in real life? Have you ever thought how funny it would seem to someone who hears it later? If you have, watch this video.
Conference Calls Re-Enacted
The video is spot on isn’t it? Especially on the dot is the grandfather and his difficulties with technology. Every office has one technologically challenged employee whose struggles are a particular source of comic relief in various situations. The old man’s “how can you…” was hilarious.
To be honest, as funny as this video is, it still doesn’t take away from the vast benefits of telecommuting. Granted that a real life meeting would be far more productive than a conference call but at the same time a real life meeting would require travel time, travel costs, premise costs, and dedicated equipment costs to be taken into account.
So all you telecommuters out there: don’t get out of those pyjamas yet…please have some mercy and keep them on…
