In this talk for Calibrate 2017, held in September in San Francisco, I shared how to become better at influencing others by leveraging the pre-meeting. Starting off, I shared how Shackleton effectively used pre-meetings on his journey to Antartica over 100 years ago. I then shared some common missteps and pro-tips from the clients I coach across the tech industry today.
