Product description

'An accessible thought provoking book that offers something of interest to anyone responsible for organising (or participating in) meetings.' Jackie Weaver, Chief Officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils


Zoom fatigue? Calendar full of meetings that could just be an email? Online and offline, too much valuable time is wasted in meetings. Often little advance planning takes place, resulting in productivity drains rather than productivity gains.


Providing realistic and practical advice, productivity professionals Graham Allcott and Hayley Watts show how to reduce the amount of time you spend in meetings, and ensure that the ones that you do attend are genuine opportunities to collaborate and get things done.


Learn how to hold and attend meetings where the focus is on the outcome; get to grips with the 40-20-40 Continuum, so that only 20 per cent of your attention for each meeting is spent in the meeting itself - the rest is in the preparation and the follow-through; and understand when it's necessary to say that you won't be attending - and how best to do so.
