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

Right now, your organization is likely looking for ways to maximize 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 coworkers in real time in a fraction of the time of traditional meetings
