You Never Know Who's Listening

The easiest place to eavesdrop a conversation is in a public restaurant.  The next time you consider taking your client out for lunch, think about what you say, how you say it and how loud you talk.

The Public Have Ears!!  You may be discussing matters that should not be heard by others.

You Never Know Who's Listening

 

We are all on trial by the public, our clients and our peers. How we blog, how we leave a message, how we  email, how we respond to others and especially how we talk on our phones ...can and will be used against us. We are in the public eye when we do any of these things.

When talking on the phone... others may be listening, you may be on speaker or even recorded.
