Can uni students really make use of conference calling?

For many people, conference calling belongs in the realms of offices and official meetings. But taking this attitude is not only inaccurate, it can mean you lose out a great deal and waste a shed load of potential. For uni students, a group generally interested in communication and staying in the loop, conference calls could have a tonne of great uses.

Study groups

Starting with the academic side of university (something many students perhaps don’t do…) you have the beneficial tradition of study groups. In some universities, these are organised and enforced by professors themselves, while other students choose to form their own study groups to help each other with assignments – in both cases, the results are invariably beneficial.

Conference calling: one more way to reduce your carbon footprint

Running a business brings with it a great deal of responsibility. You have to be able to make decisions which could impact you tremendously, as well as all of your colleagues, employees, partners, and families. But your responsibility is also much broader than this: a responsibility to your society – to conduct your business ethically and honestly – and to your planet.

It’s increasingly important that we all work together to reduce our collective carbon footprint upon the Earth, and taking little steps can make a huge difference. One option that you have within your professional life is incorporating conference calling more firmly into your every day routine.

A revolution in work life structure – how the way you work is changing

Technological development is a tidal wave that we have been unable to suppress for decades now, with people constantly thinking creatively, innovatively and practically to take the next step, come up with the next big idea that can make life easier for folk like you and me. But this isn’t all just hypothetical, theoretical, abstract development, and nor is it just revolutionary changes like implanting a camera on the front of a phone to make ‘selfies’ a very real (very prevalent) possibility, or creating social media which allows you to share your #breakfast with the world.

Why is there so much conference calling in sport?

To most people, conference calling belongs in offices and meeting rooms. But holding a meeting over the phone can be useful in many walks of life, and one area that conference calls are being utilised is in the world of sports. In essence this is because sport involves team work. Even solo sports require a team working in the background, and good team relations and clear understanding between all members are the essential building blocks of a sporting win. But conference calls can also help sports teams to communicate with the public.

US government holds conference call on partnerships in the middle east

One common misconception that we try to address at WHYPAY? is that conference calling is not just for businesses. In fact conference calls can be used within a wide field or practices and walks of life – from sports, to music, to teaching, to religion. Very recently, the US government once again demonstrated to the world the considerable power of conference calling (something governments have exemplified before) by holding talks via conference call about their partnerships and future directions in the middle east.

Conference calling services MUST make it easy for their users

We live in a world of ever-growing gadgets, apps and technologies. Nothing stays still, and there are always new services being introduced to us. Currently, there are a number of free business tools that can bring real benefits to those who use them. One of the most vital of these is the conference call, and yes phone conferencing really can be free if the right service provider is used. But its not just about getting your money’s worth, it’s also crucial that services like conference calling are genuinely easy to use. People need efficiency, speed, ease – we are used to these things, and anything that doesn’t meet the necessary standard will quite rightly be abandoned.

Conference calling for prayer groups

The teleconference is a communication tool with immense power and a huge well of potential which has often, unfortunately, gone to waste. The problem is that many people perceive conference calling purely as a business tool, when in reality it has so much more to offer with a great deal of uses outside the office. From teachers, to sportspeople, to governments, or even prayer groups, conference calls are a unifying environment allowing a group of people with a common goal to collaborate and communicate. The world is constantly getting busier, quicker, and finding time can be really tricky, even for those with the strongest faith. That’s why prayer groups held over the phone can be such a great way to keep your religious community together, not to mention helping reduce damage to our planet.
