Powwownow Webinar: ‘Decline! Why it’s Smart to Ditch Dumb Meetings’

We need meetings… to share, engage, plan, solve, debate, create and motivate. But how can we make sure they are efficient and that you are getting the most out of them? In the first of our spring webinar series we looked into how to ditch those dumb meetings and make sure you are getting the most out of your time together with colleagues, clients and suppliers.

Top Tip Takeaways

Do

  • Only invite people who need to be there and who can be involved
  • Write clear briefs and agendas. Every attendee should have a role or speciality
  • Ask people questions and make sure everyone has time to speak
  • Plan and focus your meeting by managing it to time, but don’t dominate it yourself

Ditch

  • Meetings that go off topic with only a few people talking
  • Meetings that just deliver information
  • Meetings that are too long, too slow or with too many people
  • And maybe, ditch the coffee and biscuits (controversial we know!!)
