Meetings have changed. They're more frequent, virtual, and informal. Yet, most professionals haven't upgraded their meeting skills. It's no wonder that 43% of meeting time is wasted, due to:

-Meeting overload: Professionals waste twenty-four days a year in useless meetings.
-Missing success ingredients: Ninety percent of all professionals attend meetings that lack a clearly stated objective and agenda.
-Virtual-meeting chaos: Disinterested participants + endless technical glitches= huge amounts of wasted time.
-Agenda adrift: Goals are missed when meetings veer off course.
-Action distraction: Incomplete action items result in delayed projects and missed deadlines. Good news- Help is on the way! Meet Iris, a sales manager so overwhelmed by meetings she feels like a hamster on a wheel.

Just in time, Iris finds a coach-a meeting efficiency and etiquette expert with a simple plan that helps her to meet less, make better use of meeting technology, and get more done.
