Meeting Management

In 2005, the Ayers group reported that in the United States alone, 25 million hours were spent in meetings. Half of those hours were wasted. With an average American hourly wage of $16 per hour, that is a minimum of $200 million dollars in waste. (Considering that the average meeting attendant is at the management level or higher, that figure is a very low estimate.)

So how do you reduce waste and make your meetings more efficient? Take this workshop to find out!
