In fact, a lot of us have projects totally unrelated to our professional lives. It might be to learn how to cook Thai cuisine, run a 10k, or practice meditation every evening. But many of us do get assigned projects as part of our working lives. If it’s the first time you’ve headed up a team and task, it can feel a little daunting. But with these project management tips for beginners, you’ll be feeling like a natural-born leader and trailblazer in no time!

Are free conference calls really free? What’s the catch?

Most of us were brought up to believe there’s no such thing as a free lunch. There’s doubtless a lot of wisdom in this proverb. So naturally, people hear about free teleconferences and think no way are free conference calls really free. Given how useful conference calling is for businesses, and for a whole world of fields and projects outside business, it’s hard to believe anybody would provide it for free. But that’s a grave mistake: genuinely free conference calls really are possible.

We all know teleconferencing is a great business tool. But for some people, making the most of it can mean investing in a bit of hardware – specifically, a conference call phone.

Conference calls for charities and non-profits: A vital tool

For any organisation to run smoothly and successfully, collaboration is crucial. And the key to collaboration is communication. If you’re working for a charity or non-profit, you know how important teamwork is to getting anything done, and if some people aren’t sure of what’s going on, or what’s expected of them, chaos tends to ensue. Without maintaining open and easy communication, you’re in for a stressful, frustrating and unproductive ride. But with more and more people embracing flexible and remote work, it’s not always as simple as tapping somebody on the shoulder or having an impromptu meeting. That’s why conference calls for charities are an invaluable tool which the sector should ensure is part of their day-to-day running.
