Don’t be that guy!

Sadly, we’ve all been there. Despite your budget protestations, there’s that one friend who is really insistent on trying a new swanky Japanese place or that bistro where all the reality TV stars seem to eat. Finally, they manage to twist everybody’s arms. You’ve all tucked into what was probably a delicious meal when the bill arrives. Of course, you knew it was going to be pretty hefty.

How to hold an international conference call

It’s a small world, so they say, and it’s getting smaller. As technology develops and spreads, we’re able to connect with more people, more instantaneously and more directly than ever before.

How much could free conference calling help your business?

Conference calling has become a pretty universal component of conducting day-to-day business in all kinds of different fields. From education and medicine to finance and politics, and even areas which are more typically associated with real, live action like sports and musical concerts.

Really, it isn’t a question of if conference calling is useful to your professional life, but rather of just how useful it can be. And one of the things which could help a lot of businesses in just a matter of seconds is switching to genuinely free conference calls, rather than paying for monthly subscriptions or pricey per-call services. After all, with teleconferences being so beneficial, the expenses can really start piling up. In fact, WHYPAY? saved its customers nearly £1,000,000 just in the month of July by providing totally free teleconferencing. That’s a seriously impressive amount, and there’s very little to stop you from getting a piece of the pie! Simply head to the WHYPAY? homepage and hit the button to create a free telephone conference. You’ll get your very own secure conference call room, along with a secret PIN and room number needed to access it, guaranteeing your calls’ privacy.

How to prepare for a telephone interview

Summer is often a time for change and new beginnings. For some, it’s a sharper focus on fitness as the hot weather forces us to strip off and allows us to jog around the park without contracting a nasty cold.

And with thousands of people finishing school, college, university and graduate schemes, there’s plenty of professional change happening, too. Even for those who’ve been employed for longer, you might be feeling ready to make a move to guarantee more (or less) sun for the rest of the year – or for countless other reasons.
