    No idea what's the context. Could be clearing. Well, the main thing is that you sound confident and know what you're talking about. Be firm but not forceful. Speak clearly and eloquently. Don't forget to relax and have a cuppa before it starts.

    I'd keep my mug clenched with my other hand while I'm on the phone. Something about the warmth is very reassuring to me.

    Also, I know this is obvious, but they can't see you! I would think of this as an advantage and be very relaxed. I wouldn't be all that worried about my visual presentation and put all my focus into the conversation.

    What is it? If it's a job interview, then I hope you've researched them. If it's clearing, then you need to chill and be positive.
