The average employee spends nearly 23 full days a year in meetings - over 50% of which are deemed 'unproductive' by attendees. Poorly-organised meetings are wasting workers valuable time, and money - $541 billion globally in 2019.

With realistic and practical advice this book shows how to reduce the amount of time you and your colleagues spend in meetings, and ensure that the ones that you do attend or hold are genuine opportunities to collaborate and get things done.

Learn how to ensure a meeting's 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.
