Technology is fantastic but can fail us at the most crucial times. To avoid this… test it! Whether you are using Skype, Zoom or Teams, become familiar with the software and ensure you have a clear connection. Test your camera, microphone and internet connection.
Test how you will appear on camera; as an example, you should position yourself in the centre of the frame, a good distance from the screen.
Tech issues can be expected, avoided, and forgiven – prepare yourself to handle any unplanned tech issues like a professional!
