Running a successful meeting

This is a back to basics guide, worth a reminder in our ever busy lives.
  1. Prepare a brief and send it a day/two prior to the meeting, ensuring all attendees have read it and are prepared
  2. Invite those who really need to be there to contribute and not for political reasons.
  3. Have a structured agenda to prevent digression.
  4. Prep the room with stimulus (imagery, data, chocolates, etc) to support an ideation session.
  5. Take notes.
  6. Agree on the best case/worst case output before the start and chances are you will end up with a structure of a deliverable solution by the time you end the meeting.
  7. Acknowledge participants’ contribution and circulate notes/owners to ensure progression and accountability.
