Best-practice-Tips-video-conference-Backdrops

 

2020 brought us all into each other's homes and gave us insights into colleagues’ and clients’ personal lives that we’d not been privy to before. Backgrounds put some people at ease about their privacy, their surroundings and their workspace.

With the force of digital transformation brought on by Covid-19, there’s a wide range of preferences for backgrounds.

Optimise your video conferencing experience. Watch this episode on backdrops and how to set up your environment to ensure you present yourself at your best.
