Conference calls & how to survive them....

I seem to spend an incredible amount of time on conference calls, some I host & take an active part it, others I am merely one of many bored participants listening to some Europrat or Yank going on about the 1 product they manage for the whole of EMEA or Worldwide business (oh how challenging that must be!?) try managing multiple businesses in just one country!

Clearly different people have different approaches to how they utilise their time on these calls that don't really inspire or excite - yes, its a good time to catch up on emails, or others simply sit there & throw waste paper into the bin from a distance.

Now comes the virtual waste paper basket challenge - it saves picking up all the bits of paper that you will no doubt have surrounding the waste paper basket after 30 minutes or so.
