Ann Latham's Uncommon Meetings is a road map to well run meetings. It is a good read for busy people. While serving as a refresher for all of us who labor through less effective meetings, the highlights in boxes and bullet points emphasize insightful aids to more meaningful meetings and desired outcomes. Dianne Fuller Doherty, Regional Director, Massachussetts Small Business Development Center Network

I attended a workshop on this topic that Ann presented a while ago, and it is pure Ann Latham! Helpful, to the point, and lots of great tips to keep meetings productive instead of just a waste of time. I've found the tips useful even when I am not the chair of the meeting, including meetings of volunteer boards.

More About the Author

Ann Latham is an expert in creating organizational clarity and commitment.

Ms. Latham is the founder and president of the management consulting firm, Uncommon Clarity™, Inc. She has helped organizations in 28 industries, and her clients include for-profit organizations, such as Hitachi, and non-profit organizations, such as Public Television and Smith College.

Before founding her consulting firm, Ann worked in high-tech as a leader of cross-functional, cross-divisional teams that set strategy and improved productivity.

In 2004, after twenty-five years of working for other people, Ann decided to go the route of the entrepreneur, so she opened her consulting firm. At first, Ann focused on improving client operations, but soon realized that a company's operations didn't make much difference to its success if that company didn't know where it was going. She soon changed her business focus to include strategy.

Ann is considered an expert in organizational clarity and commitment.

She's been interviewed and has been written about in 85 media sources, including Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Forbes, Inc., MasterCard.com, MSNBC.com, and The New York Times. Her business advice also appears in her own global e-newsletter, Clear Thoughts, which won a Constant Contact All-Star Award (for her newsletter's exceptional open rate).

She's an accomplished keynote and workshop speaker, and has spoken to thousands of executives, managers, employees, and MBA students. Of Ann's speaking, famed Ideas Are Free coauthor and Isenberg School of Management professor, Alan G. Robinson says: "Ann Latham is one of the best business speakers I have heard. She is very experienced, the quality of her thinking is extremely high, and she knows how to deliver her message in an entertaining, concise, and convincing way."

Recently, Ann created an app, "Ann's Clarity App," which is a digital cheat sheet that produces process clarity for individuals and teams.

Outside of work, she skis, canoes, plays ice hockey, and rides a unicycle.

After visiting 36 countries, 48 US states, and seven Canadian provinces, Ann makes her home in the hills of western Massachusetts.

She graduated magna cum laude with a degree in mathematics from Tufts University.
