“Scientists say that coffee and donuts release chemicals into the brain that create the illusion that meetings are a productive way to get things done.” Randy Glasbergen
Business life is dominated by meetings: network meetings, catch up coffee meetings; prospect meetings; sales meetings; operational meetings; planning and strategic meetings – you get the drift? Chances are you are you frustrated by return on the time you invest? This video is about structuring the meeting to ensure the purpose is met.
1. Let the right people know about the purpose of this meeting
2. Consider the date, the time and an appropriate online or offline venue
3. Now consider the importance of the items you need to include in this agenda and where each item fits into the flow of the meeting.
4. Send the agenda out in advance of the meeting along with any information that will help delegates understand the meeting’s purpose and intended outcomes.
Please do share your experiences with this model in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
