How to have a meeting

I had a great chat on the good, the bad and the ugly of organizational meetings with Phil Daoust of The Guardian newspaper as part of a excellent in-depth article which appeared today in G2 (April 23) entitled "How to have a meeting". Here are the online links to it:

The Guardian Newspaper

So you want to call a meeting ...Eight things to consider before you hold a meeting

And here are 3 of the articles on meetings we discussed:

1. Five tips for a perfect meeting
2. Conference Calls: Twelve Golden Rules
3. Run better meetings with Roberts Rules 1896

Just a note - May 23 should be April 23 !

An absolutely great posting and article.
It made me smile for the first time in ages.


Hi Alec

Thanks for the comment and spotting the date typo. You and I both know only too well the kind of meetings described.

Best Regards

I think this type of experiences should no longer happen, because it seems so stupid..

Here are the online links to it: entitled "How to have a meeting".
