On virtual calls, via video, it is important to maintain eye contact with the camera; and through that lens, the people you are talking to
That means avoiding the temptation to look at your own face, picture-in-picture, during the call. A fun way to achieve this, and put a smile on your face, is to cut out some life-sized eyes from a magazine and place them either side of the camera lens on your laptop. And remember to say to yourself. ‘Don’t look at ‘me’ when I’m talking to ‘you’.
