If you roll your eyes at yet another meeting invite in your calendar. If you leave meetings wondering what the purpose was or questioning what was actually decided. If you would love to have more time in your calendar every week, then Donna McGeorge has the answer. This book is a life changer. Turn painful meetings into purposeful ones with this gem of a book that’s jam packed with tips, tools and exercises to make meetings more fun and all about adding value versus becoming a value drain. And even better — it’s a good, quick read that is instantly actionable. An absolute must read.

The 25 Minute Meeting is the game changer for organisations and leaders to get laser focused on what matters. The default one-hour meetings mean people aren’t thinking consciously about what the purpose of the meeting is or what the ideal outcome needs to be. In a world of trying to do more with less, The 25 Minute Meeting is the disruptor to create a productive and high performing team.

It is rare that you can read a book, immediately apply practical advice tips and tools and change the way you work.

If meetings continue to be a drain on your time, give this book a try — a great read.

Meetings are a highly luxurious, even decedent way to get work done. When we get a bunch of people together for a chunk of time, we ought to ensure that we maximise this time. But unfortunately, we often don’t. We too often get too many people together for too long with no clear focus or process to achieve the outcomes. In The 25 Minute Meeting, Donna McGeorge shows you how to half the length of your meetings, and double their impact. Full of practical strategies that work, this little book packs a big punch. Give this to everyone you meet with and change the meeting culture around you today.

For a large number of modern day executives meetings are a necessary evil — whether global, regional or local, conducted face to face or virtually across multiple time zones, meetings are a way of life. Unfortunately, many meetings don’t achieve the intended purpose of communication, alignment or execution while wasting valuable time and energy! I applaud The 25 Minute Meeting which tackles not just the ‘why’ of meetings but also the ‘how’ of saving 35  minutes per traditional 60-minute meeting!

Immediately useful. At least three changes I can make this week to get more out of the meetings I need to be at, and get out of those I don’t.

As a leader of busy teams, it’s important to me to continue finding ways to balance productivity at work with what’s important to all of us outside the office … life! Barack Obama, Elon Musk and Bill Gates are amongst those that have offered practical tips on how to make meetings more productive, but it’s trusted team facilitator and workplace performance guru, Donna McGeorge who really brings it altogether in this great read on how to practically reduce the many, many, many, (… many) unproductive hours we spend in meetings for meetings’ sake. I thought I’d hit a personal best getting some of my meetings to 45 minutes but clearly there’s room to improve!
