Results Oriented Meetings

Meetings are expensive! Some 15 million meetings take place in corporate America every day and can cost over $30 billion a year. It has been estimated that most people spend approximately 25% of their time in meetings. Middle managers often spend at least two days a week in meetings, with senior managers and executive sometimes spending up to four days a week in meetings.
