The demand for better relationships and greater added customer value have grown extensively in the past 10 years or so. This is mainly a result of growing global competition.

Traditional communication methods are not enough to respond to the changing needs of client companies. Thus, new types of communication tools need to be adopted.

Today, online meetings are an extremely common way to collaborate. Even so, even the most skilled meeting guru should not forget to consider the online meeting etiquette.

Only wanting to get daddy’s attention, followed by a baby wobbling into the room in a walker. They were followed by a shocked woman who somehow managed to encourage the kids to leave the room. Even though all of us viewers found this extremely hilarious and entertaining, surely it’s hard to laugh when it happens to you.
