To be honest I love to be a journalist. but I hate all those work conferences. When I'm the chairman I can stay on top of everything and won't fall asleep, but as just a member of the team I feel travelling to the office takes too much precious time.
What works for me are conference calls.
The team hasn't been in favor of them because of the costs and because you're only allowed so many people to join for a certain budget. Apart from that, when you don't even have one conference you're billed for the planned amount anyway.
But now I've found the opportunity to feel completely free.
Not only does Zip Conference offers a free number of participants in a conference call, sign-up is free, and you're only paying for the time you use the service.
So when you haven't used it, you won't be billed. As easy as that.
Apart from that: you can change your plan from month to month and there's no need to schedule calls.
In case you want to try the service: go ahead. The first 60 minutes are free.
For me it means I will propose conference calls next meeting again.
They're very convenient to discuss matters efficiently and when it's needed we can meet without losing precious traveltime.
