Saving the world –
one meeting at a time
Make yours more efficient, engaging – and fun!
People spend hundreds of hours in meetings. Organizations devote thousands of hours to them. You have a choice: dull, unproductive meetings – or effective meetings that engage people, feel good, and get things done. We help with that through:
We make more of your meetings ones that efficiently generate better ideas, truly include participants so they feel respected and valued, and get you to real action items – while cutting down on meetings that are boring, pointless, wastes of time and money. We work with companies, associations, government agencies, and nonprofits to tackle three common meeting categories:
Staff or board meetings, committees, brainstorming, etc.
Big meetings that include conferences and presentations.
Mixers and networking events within companies and at conferences.
We do one thing and do it well:

- Draws on meeting expertise most employees don’t have.

Think about how many hours you’re in meetings or run meetings. Can they be better? Despite being asked to be in and run hours and hours of meetings, most employees have never had any meeting training. Even a short training can pay years of dividends. While it’s true that a meeting about meetings can sound dreadful, our trainings are hands-on, productive, insightful, and fun.
