Overview

Info

41% of us now complain that meetings are our biggest time-waster at work (Shoretel). The truth is they are often irrelevant, time-consuming and badly run. But we still need meetings, as they are essential to communication. We just need to learn how to use them effectively again.

In this session we will show you how, transforming how you and your colleagues meet going forwards. We’ll also cover in detail how to get successful results from virtual meetings.

“On average, we now attend 62 meetings a month.”
