a. The interview utilizes Zoom – including the camera and microphone functions.

b. The interview will take about 10 – 15 minutes. However, we schedule it for 30-minutes to secure the speaker's time.

Tips for Guests

• No virtual backgrounds – When edited, the quality of the video is lowered.
• In Zoom, ensure your HQ quality setting is turned on.
• Mute your cell phone.
• Turn off notifications on your computer.
• Look at your webcam instead of the screen. Consider raising your computer so your camera is centered.
• Practice to ensure you do not seem as if reading.
• If using Wi-Fi, consider removing other devices during the recording to ensure a good connection.
