Focus on your camera

Practice looking into your camera during video conferences when you speak, even for brief moments.
It's challenging to focus on your camera for an entire meeting, but know that you increase the impact of your points when you look deep into it.

Maintain a strong voice

Strong voices convey authority, credibility, and confidence.
Using a loud voice will also keep you from mumbling and from speaking too quickly due to the amount of breath required.

Frame yourself in the right way

Make sure you have time before the meeting to pick your location and put your head fully in frame.
In a video conference, your head and the top of your shoulders should dominate the screen. Also, be mindful of your background. Distracting elements will pull attention away from you.

Be present

Be present

Resist the temptation to check your email or attend to other work, because you don’t want to be caught unprepared if asked a sudden question.
Close those other windows, turn your phone upside down, and remember that you’re on camera.

Don’t become a distraction

Be very aware of the power you have over your virtual and physical environments:

  • Stay on mute every time you are not speaking and unmute yourself only when you do speak.
  • Turn off your camera when you’re doing something visually distracting.
  • If you work with your kids and have to sustain a presentation, try to have someone supervise them in another room. Truly important messages require not only your colleagues’ full attention but yours as well.

Use the chat window

Use it as an opportunity to emphasize your ideas and prove that you’re fully present. A few examples: 

  • When you mention an article or shared document, link to it in the chat.
  • If you run the meeting, put a link to the agenda in the chat.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
