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.

Who is paying for your free conference calls?

A lot of people’s immediate reaction to being offered something for free is disbelieving skepticism. The assumption is that there must be a catch, a condition, a hidden cost. Sometimes, these sage cynics are right; a lot of conference call services claiming to be free do end up costing you money. Sometimes it’s in sign-up fees, sometimes they charge you for what they term ‘extras’, but which they know are almost always essentials, and sometimes it’s only free if you have a very small number of participants or a very small number of minutes. Wherever the charges are hidden, it’s causing a lot of confusion and mistrust in an industry which is trying desperately to clean up its image.

A brief history of 03 numbers

03 numbers are rooted in a truly positive and benevolent philosophy. They emerged in 2007, introduced by Ofcom, the industry regulator, to enable companies to lower the charges customers faced when trying to get in touch with them. 03 numbers allow private and public businesses and organisations to bear the brunt of the expense. Instead of being charged at a local rate like non-geographic 0845 numbers, or at the national rate like numbers beginning 0870, 03 numbers are charged at the same rate as a standard landline number would be – that is, any 01 or 02 number.

Are you traveling to meetings in the heat? Hold a FREE conference call instead

Anybody familiar with a commute to work – or, in fact, any use of public transport – knows only too well that no matter how unpleasant it may normally seem, it can always get worse. It can get hot. Many commuters rely on crammed, stuffy trains filled with people so impatient and frustrated they practically radiate their own heat. And while using public transport is good for our planet,  travelling on a hot train is far from the ideal way to spend the short-lived summer we experience in the UK. Not that cars are much better either, sitting in standstill traffic with the sun beating down on you and baking you in your own vehicle…nobody wants it.

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.
