1/ Start and end on time – not only does good timekeeping demonstrate organizational skills it also keeps the audience engaged for the duration. Meetings that go on too long will result in the audience losing focus, which makes the meeting less productive.

3/ Be clear and concise – this will prevent any confusion and allow for maximum productivity because the point is made quickly and with minimal fuss.
‘When I run my meetings, firstly I make sure that everyone knows why they are there and what the goal of the meeting is for them’ said CEO Ibram Gaston. ‘Our morning meeting is a crucial part of the day because it is the time when everyone comes together with the same goal – to make this their best day yet!’ Added the CEO.
