You are entirely within the realm of business etiquette if you arrive to a conference call three minutes late. You can, in fact, strategically arrive at three minutes past, just as the call really gets started.
But if you’re there three minutes early…
You’ll get the chance to talk with the host of the call one on one. You’ll meet the other people who are ready to get something done. You’ll get to create, renew and enhance relationships with peers and customers in an informal, friendly atmosphere.
Show up a little early.
