In complex companies, we are connected to many teams and networks. The people we work with (at Global Integration) tell us they spend about two days per week in meetings and conference calls and 50% of this is irrelevant.

This means that many of us spend 8 years of our career in unnecessary meetings and calls – and some weeks it really feels like it!



In this episode Kevan Hall focuses on reducing the number of meetings and improving participation in those that remain.

We would love to hear your stories about your worst (or best) meetings. Your stories and questions will help shape future episodes.

If you would like us to help apply this process to your meetings, call Global Integration

I am heading out to Malaysia and Singapore now for a couple of weeks vacation so no more posts till after the 12th August. If you are having a break too – turn off your mobile phone and ignore those emails – enjoy.
