Planning<br />Planning is key for a successful, productive meeting which does not waste anyone’s time. <br />
Location<br />When meetings involve multiple parties from different locations the proximity to transport links of the venue is important. Travel problems can cause delays and waste time. <br />
Equipment<br />Most people will require a computer and projector or screen. Make sure you have all the equipment set up in advance to save time and hassle. <br />
Agenda<br />Make sure everyone is able to properly prepare by setting a clear agenda in advance.<br />
Communication<br />Make sure that everyone is prepared and on time by communicating any changes to everyone, in advance. <br />
Timings<br />After lunch is not the best time for an important meeting. 10am tends to be an optimum time. <br />
Catering<br />If you anticipate the meeting to run over lunch pre-order food and plan a lunch break into the agenda. This will ensure that people are not distracted by their stomach.<br />
Minutes<br />At the beginning of the meeting delegate someone to take the minutes and ensure that these are typed up and sent out to all attendees after the meeting so everybody is clear on any actions they are required to take.<br />
