We've got to KEEP meeting like this!
on January 5, 2014
Dana Wright is an excellent event designer, facilitator and graphic recorder, and an equally excellent communicator. And she's been on a burning mission for as long as I've known her: to make meetings, conferences and gatherings be the absolute best they can be. Why should you care about this? Because great meetings deliver great value: to the participants, to the convenors, and to the company or organization as a whole. When everyone in the room is fully engaged ideas come alive, creativity flows, and the whole group moves forward in great, quantum leaps.
What Dana does in this book is to gather the best ideas from seasoned practitioners (including herself!) and organize them into a model that addresses every aspect of a meeting from well before it starts, through the event itself, to the important "after" steps that ensure lasting results. The result is a book that is chock-full of helpful tips, techniques and information, presented in a down-to-earth style that is warm, witty and accessible, yet thoroughly professional.
"We've Got to START Meeting Like This" has become an indispensable resource for me since it landed on my desk, and I've made several clients and colleagues very happy by giving copies to them. I recommend it highly to anyone who ever has to plan a meeting - or who wants to ensure that the meetings they go to are productive, energizing and fun!
