Better integration for fewer bad meetings

How much time do you spend in meetings? Go on. Take a gander at your calendar.

Now that you’ve guessed, how much of that time is productive? In a recent study, MIT Sloan found that only half of all meeting time is effective, well-used and engaging. On average, an organisation spends 15% of its collective time in meetings. We think this is a big problem.

You know what good meetings look and feel like. But, replicating an outstanding meeting experience every time can feel impossible. A good meeting needs great facilitation, and that takes dedication, skill, and time.

In today’s world, remote and hybrid working makes collaboration even trickier. Meeting time skyrockets while productivity and engagement suffer. How can you get back on track and make the most of your meeting time?
