interesting book

I enjoyed this audio book. I can't say that I'll use all of the tips or that I've even participated in all of the kinds of meetings described, however the author definitely gave me something to think about.

Meeting Techinques to Master

Great instructions for making better use of time established for meetings. I am buying the book for my team to restructure our agenda, minutes and types of meetings.

Too generic

It was really generic / didn’t seem to apply to my work/industry very well. It also felt very buzzwordy. My key takeaways are to cut meeting times in half since meetings expand to take the time allotted, invite only the minimum number of people, have an agenda with prework/purpose, have someone drive the meeting, and make sure to summarize decisions/action items at the end of the meeting.

I loathe meetings.

I have always loathed meetings. Whether I give them or somebody else dose never seemed to matter. But since I've listened to Meetings Suck I now understand why! I'm actually looking forward to putting on my next meeting!

My meetings won't suck!

I was fortunate to hear Cameron speak in person at a conference in Minneapolis a few months ago. He is incredibly knowledgeable, easy to understand and practical.

Practical and right on point

Implemented some of the advices in the book in our company’s weekly meetings and saw immediate results. Part 3 of the book also challenged me to think about the different types of meetings that I should introduce to my company which is just what I needed
