How much are ineffective meetings costing you? According to a recent Bloomberg article, employees spend an average of 18 hours per week in meetings.* Unnecessary meetings waste USD $25,000 annually per employee – totalling USD $101 million per year for organisations with 5,000 or more employees.*

Right now, your organisation is likely looking for ways to maximise productivity, reduce costs and focus on the high-impact work that will actually move the needle. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is by reducing inefficient, unnecessary meetings.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Collaborate asynchronously to cascade important information and work efficiently across time zones
  2. Sync with colleagues in real time in a fraction of the time of traditional meetings
  3. Automate processes to save time and streamline important tasks
