Family is not just for Christmas: How to stay in touch all year round

After the festive period, you might have had a few too many mince pies, and seen more questionable jumpers than you care to recall, but one thing you can never have too much of is family time. For many, who could do with learning a few tricks to take care of themselves as well as everyone else, the holidays become such a stressful period that family time is not quality time, and you’re left feeling like you barely got to have a real conversation with anybody. And even if you did, once or twice a year is not enough! You need to hear about how your uncle got on with that book, how your cousin’s trip across Europe was, whether your young nephew got the role in the school play.

How to set up a free conference call

It’s no surprise so many people want to know how to set up a free conference call. Two trends in business life are converging to raise the conference call to its rightful place upon the throne of communications technology. First there’s the decline of the office.

Very often, people hear the word ‘free’ and become immediately wary. There is, of course, the knee-jerk reaction that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. In this increasingly cynical, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction.

Feeling the cold? Take advantage of conference calls when you really need them

Conference calls have a huge amount of potential and utility, and can be an ideal solution in many different circumstances. Winter is one of these, as it is a time when both weather and festivities can make going into work difficult and unappealing. With teleconferencing you can remove the need to battle treacherous conditions to attend a meeting.

During the winter months, the weather can become bitterly cold – particularly in some areas. This then makes the thought of a long commute to a business meeting extremely unpleasant for all participants. In severe conditions, it can be even more than unpleasant, it can become impossible to travel. Public transport gets disrupted and cancelled, roads have to be closed, cars can be very dangerous to drive.
