How to look good on Zoom

Check out this quick video with some timely advice on how to look good on video conferencing tools like Zoom.  We are all learning what works best but here is a quick summary:

  • Mute your mic when you aren't speaking
  • Use video as much as you possibly can
  • Rather than verbal agreements (aha, hmmm etc) nod your head, give thumbs up
  • Move your camera so that no-one is looking up your nose or just seeing your forehead.  Take up at least 3/4 of the screen with your head and shoulders
  • Think about what is behind you, lighting and setting
  • Dress like you are working.  No one wants to see your pyjamas
  • Remember you are on video - we can see you typing an email or looking at your phone.  Be present!!
  • One that I would add is even if you are sharing a deck for most of the call always start and finish on video.  It makes it much easier to connect.

Hope this helps.

Like a lot of people working from home to prevent the spread COVID-19, the team at Crappy Childhood Fairy uses Zoom a LOT -- meetings, technical and creative collaboration, Daily Practice and Group Coaching calls and just staying connected with isolated loved ones.
