Meeting Management

Recently, a major organisation reported that in their base country alone, 25 million hours were spent in meetings. Half of those hours were wasted.
Even at UK minimum wage, that’s at least £140 million in waste.

(Considering that the average meeting attendant is at the management level or higher, that figure is a very low estimate.)

So how do you reduce waste and make your meetings more efficient? Take this workshop to find out !
