What are your tricks for having quiet phone conversations?

I spend a lot of my day at work on the phone. I speak in a normal volume, but everyone in the offices near me can hear me. I don't think I'm exceptionally loud, as I can also hear everyone in adjacent offices on the phone.
I know some people (especially skilled receptionists) are able to have a phone conversation where the person on the other end of the phone can hear everything but someone standing a few feet away cannot. If you have this skill, what are your tricks?
