Don’t you hate those people who talk really loudly into their blue tooth earpieces as you try desperately to keep your personal space from being invaded by the 900 other people on the cross town bus? Yea. So do we.
And while YOU would, clearly, never be so rude, here are our top 4 cell phone etiquette rules you’ll never break again:
If you’re in a public place (ie restaurant, movie theatre, place of worship), turn off your phone or, at least, put it on vibrate.
If you must take a call in a public place, try to keep a distance of at least 10 ft between you and the person closest to you. And, lower your voice so no one else has to hear your private business.
Be present, both mentally and physically, when you are hanging out with friends and family. So, put the phone down. If the phone rings, keep it brief and offer to call back at a more convenient time.
Don’t text and drive. It can wait.
Have some friends who need to brush up on their cell phone etiquette this month? We’ve got a board full of pins that you can share.
I started my first company in 2010 in the midst of the down economy. By sharing content on Twitter, Facebook, and my blog, I gained expertise in the event planning industry and have become a leader and influencer. Thankfully, I've been named Top 25 Most Influential Event Planners in 2013, 40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Event Planners in 2011, the #Eventprofs Most Thought Provoking Blog and People’s Choice Award. This created a platform for me to build my business and strong brand even further. Working with clients on events like Earn $100K Summit and S.H.E. Summit Week, I help entrepreneurs integrate technology into their events to better engage their attendees.
In addition to our client work, we also hosts our own events. As the founder of TechsyTalk and PlannerTech, I'm incredibly dedicated to educating fellow event professionals on how technology can enhance their events.
