State of the Modern Meeting

Some facts about the way we manage our meetings today may surprise you…

Did you know they last thirty six minutes on average and change in frequency with the seasons, rising in popularity during the winter months? Even weekend meetings are becoming more popular!

With the number of meetings on the rise, it’s a wonder busy executives are finding the time to travel to so many of them. The answer lies in video meetings.

25% of meetings feature at least one mobile video participant and 35% of meeting rooms feature a video conferencing system. In 2015 alone, video meetings enabled us to avoid 7.5 billion travel miles (the equivalent of 53 trips to Mars!), 1.25 million tonnes of CO2 emissions (equal to planting 322,644 trees) and a staggering £2.2 billion in travel costs.
