The 25 Minute Meeting

Thursday 25 October 2018 |  Time:   1:30 pm to 2:00 pm AEDT

Webcast Overview

Meetings are the defacto way of doing business, but too often they do nothing more than eat up our days and waste our resources. This does not need to be the case, and with a few simple changes to how you approach meetings, you can get back valuable time in your day and improve the impact of every meeting you attend.

In this session we will discuss:

• What people hate most about meetings. Why are they so bad?
• Why 25-minute meetings?
• What you could do RIGHT NOW to improve your meetings.
