Designing the Perfect Meeting; the ART of Making Meetings Work

Introduction and Course Overview

Let’s have a meeting about having meetings! The art and science of the meeting is so misunderstood and/or ill-defined that the word “meeting” has become synonymous with the word “boring” and the phrase “waste of time.” It need not be so!
