How conference call Portugal

Portugal was one of pioneers of Europe’s exploration of the world in the 15th century, and although it has a long history of foreign trade, it is no longer the superpower it once was.

Although there’s no time difference with the UK, the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, sits some 1,300 miles almost directly south of London and is around a two-and-a-half hour flight away – so a conference call is probably the most straightforward and certainly the most cost-effective way to stay in touch.

And here’s how to set up a conference call between UK and Portugal in just a few simple steps…
