Avoid any typing or Texting while on a Video conference Call

A good wifi connection will prevent you from falling in and out of the video conferencing platform.

Refrain from Chowing Down

Rule of thumb; if you wouldn’t bring that tuna sandwich into a meeting with your boss, don’t bring it into a video call. Even though they can’t smell it, eating can be very distracting and come off as disrespectful.

Don't pull a Houdini Disappearing Act

It’s understandable that disruptions may occur, especially if you are working from home. The first rule of thumb is to keep these a minimum, but if you must step away , notify the group by politely excusing yourself verbally or in the video conference call.

Keep moment to Minimum

If you tend to fidget, play with your hair, or perform a repetitive moment (like a lot of hand moments or tapping your pencil) try to keep it to a minimum on your call. This can be surprisingly distracting to other participants. 

Keep your Background Professional

This goes for not only noises but also visuals. A messy room, your kids or pets running around or bustling coffee shop behind you can also be distracting for participants. Now, that’s not to say you can’t have anything behind you – it can actually be a great conversation piece to have a nice painting, colorful wall, or neatly ornamented shelved with your personal touch.

Proactively Prevent Technical Difficulties

Make sure that you arrive a few minutes early for your video conference call, especially if it’s the first time you are using the application. You may need to Install something, update your computer, or address a mic or speaker issue you want to ensure you have time to do this before the call starts. The last first impression you want to make is being late
