This one is tricky. I have not yet met someone who has never called on a conference call. I have met people who have called on a conference call and still were able to do things just because they were able to break the rules. There is no doubt that the real world is much more stressful than a conference call. However, there are times when conference calls are needed or convenient, like when you are on a very important call or at a meeting that you have to be at.
In the real world though, conference calls are stressful and time-consuming. Like they are a lot more important than they actually are. I know that in order to get a conference call, you must have a phone number and a number of people you want to speak with. It is a time-consuming process. Most people don’t have that luxury.
Conference calls are typically a one-on-one conversation between two people. They are not one big group of people sitting around a table, exchanging information. You are probably in control of the conversation so you can do a little more planning and be more prepared.
I used to be a conference call person. Now I’m just a phone caller. No more.
Conferencing, like the phone, is a one-on-one conversation. You are not in control. So you have to be very up-front about what you want to discuss. In my case, I wanted to talk to one of my friends about some things and asked him to send me the list of people (email address) that he wanted to talk to. I would then type the names in my phone and send the phone to the other person.
One thing I learned is that you can send a call to a dozen people and not get a response. I would then ask people to call me back and I could tell the person the conversation started by accident.
We had a talk/chat session for a week and you guys were working on getting your phone back. We were able to get a call back from the guy who was calling about his own personal life before the meeting, but the guy I talked to was a friend of mine. We were all a little confused and didn’t know what to make of it. We were going to go to the town hall and see if we could find out what he was up to.
In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the massive media attention it’s been generating, I would imagine that it is now more important than ever to protect your privacy. And this is where you might want to contact me about the conference calls you might have with me. I will be able to tell you about the people I know from my social media, to be honest.
I am a very private person, but not averse to having a bit of a laugh with you. If you are in the San Francisco Bay area, I would be happy to come to your house or office or wherever you are, and we can discuss this issue.
I am a big fan of conference calls. I am a fan of the people who have the technology to make a conference call. I really like the idea of a conference call because it can be done without the use of a telephone or the Internet. You just call someone and they come to you to talk. It is very much like a normal conversation.
