Today I was hosting a meeting and unfortunately duue to the weather one of the attendees could not join us as their flight was cancelled from the UK.
So we decided at the last minute to connect through a conference call. We were in a hotel and the call was going to be for over 2 hours – so what other options did I have for making the call?
– I have a low cost calling card
– I have Skype on my laptop
– but what I opted for was Skype on the iPhone.
We had four people in one conference room with my iPhone and placed the phone in the middle of the meeting table. And with the speaker phone on we were able to speak to our colleague on their office landline. I have a monthly account for worldwide Skype calls of just €8.95 plus vat per month for unlimited number of calls to landline. How is that for keeping your communication costs down?
I use Skype all the time in the office – now with this app I just might use them for conference calls on the run.
What’s your favourite example of using Skype to connect to colleagues, customers, familyy and friends?
