Join us for an introductory workshop on how to get the most out of your meetings.


Our work-life is a collection of meetings and then some lucky fragments for work in between. 

According to Johann Hari, we are in the ever faster spinning vicious cycle of losing our focus and productivity.

Research shows:

37% percent of employees believe that their organisation’s most significant cost is unnecessary meetings.

92% of employees find themselves multitasking during meetings.

69% of employees check their email frequently during a meeting

49% of employees admitted that they do other unrelated work during meetings rather than paying attention to the meeting agenda.

Meetings eat not only our time but our creativity, productivity and wellbeing


You will learn a process and to use a handy tool to get over the tipping point and have efficient, effective, and exemplary meetings.

You can learn to boost your team meetings, get them back on track and encourage others to do the same. You will learn to be more engaged and engaging and empower everybody to get more out of the meetings.

The Make Meetings Meaningful workshop is a lively and hands-on training session


After the workshop, you have your own unique roadmap to improve your meetings and help others to do the same. You will also have a handy pre-meeting checklist and template to get meetings shorter and more focused.

Together we will get  your team ready to have more time, fun and positive outcomes from every meeting.
