Meeting dos and don’ts – I’m sorry, I was on mute. Podcast 3

Today we’ll be talking about Conference Calls and meetings. Listen in as we talk about do’s and don’ts for attending and managing calls and meetings. Don’t be surprised if we get off to…

Our newest podcast episode is up, and hey we made it to episode 3! Be sure to check out Meeting dos and don’ts – I’m sorry, I was on mute. Podcast 3 available now on iTunes, PodOmatic, Stitcher, and now Google Play. Yes, the “Big G” folks finally recognized our genius. Way to be late to the party Google. They are just jealous that GP doesn’t stand for Google Play.

Don’t worry Millenials, Spotify is in the works. They require 2 or 3 episodes before they’ll include a podcast in their service. Belinda will be her usual self and pleasantly badger them into submission. That southern drawl/New York attitude is a winning combination for getting things done. It’s sunshine and flowers until you see she’s holding a lead pipe behind her back.

If all of that is too mainstream for you, let me know and I’ll make a scratchy cassette recording and tape it under a bench in a dark alley so you can feel edgy. Actually, I’ll make Shawn tape it under a bench in a dark alley. Who puts a bench in a dark alley anyway? But I digress…

In episode 3 we take on conference calls, web meetings, IRL meetings (that’s In Real Life for the boomers out there) and every kind of meeting annoyance we can think of. My favorite is still “Sorry, I didn’t hear the question, I was on mute.” Wait, what? More and more meetings are virtual so they get a lot of attention from us.

We’ve gotten good feedback from our first two episodes and we’re figuring things out. Essentially we want this podcast to be if we were out to dinner together and this topic came up, this is what it would sound like. We’ve got a lot more topics to cover, some more serious than others. Let’s face it we started with GDPR, we were going to have to lighten up at some point!

This one is lighter, but still full of great information. We all fall into bad habits and need a reminder occasionally of the right things to do. With that in mind, drive fast and make poor choices.
