Virtual Event

Most of us spend more than half of our time in meetings, and many of those meetings can be unproductive, unfocused, or even completely unnecessary. According to various resources, with 11 million meetings happening everyday just in the US, unnecessary meetings cost US businesses ~$37 billion each year!

Now more than ever, with more meetings happening virtually, more frequently, with more attendees than before, the skill to run an effective meeting is more relevant than ever before.

Event Description:

During this session we will learn about Model Meetings®, a pragmatic framework enabling us to drive business value by increasing clarity, purpose, and focus in all meetings.

The Model Meetings® framework is designed to deliver maximum results with minimum time invested. Learn more about this framework in this interactive session.
