NAMDET: A case study

The National Association of Medical Device Training, or NAMDET, is an organisation which carries out the invaluable work of ensuring that healthcare professionals are fully trained to use all kinds of specialist equipment in their work to look after people’s health. In this capacity, the organisation is crucial to ensuring the safety and care of patients across the country and spanning different medical fields. Because of the sheer spread of their reach, the large and varied membership (from medical engineers to risk and governance managers and nursing staff to operating department practitioners), as well as the instructive nature of their work, there’s no doubt that to the people at NAMDET, good communication is key.

When is it time to end a conference call?

We have all experienced meetings which drag on far too long. In fact, so much so that 73% of professionals have time to do other work in meetings according to Atlassian, a productivity software company.

So how is it possible to know when it’s time to call it a day and hang up a conference call? Below are just a few of the classic signs that your call has gone on far too long.

How to avoid productivity-killer scenarios in meetings

Whether they are something we find enjoyable or not, meetings are an inevitable aspect of life in the business world. Thankfully, if meetings are run properly, we can come away from them feeling extremely positive and productive as they can help us collaborate as a team, save time and money and generate innovative ideas. Unfortunately however, not every business meeting accomplishes these outcomes.

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.

Don’t just give… Be wonderful.

A new charity fundraising platform goes live this month – and 100% of donations will go directly to supported charities. The Wonderful Organisation has been launched by Manchester businessman Kieron James to give fundraisers an alternative to platforms that charge charities, make deductions to cover costs, generate profit or take a cut from Gift Aid – a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers.

5 of the best apps for working professionals

There are so many smartphone and desktop applications out there that it can be easy to find your devices completely cluttered up with tools that you rarely use.

Using conference calls for customer/staff support

Teamwork is almost always crucial to achieving something in business. Even the most experienced, successful professional would tend to confess that two heads are better than one, and three better than two, and… you get the idea.

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.
