Let's have an online meeting

Before You Start

Make sure your computer monitor (and webcam) are positioned for comfort

Be ready to greet participants with voice and chat.

Log in, load up and check your resources.

Get your desk ready, clear a space, get rid of distractions and set your phone to silent.

Let your colleagues know you won't be available and post a “Do Not Disturb” sign if you need to.

Turn off unnecessary IM and email to avoid distractions.

Answer calls of nature; grab a coffee or some water!

Enable and check your audio connections.
