It's just after noon. You're hungry, your glass of water has run out, and you have been sitting in an uncomfortable chair for the past hour. There is a long list of things you could be working on - some of it needs to be done by tomorrow. You have to pick up the kids at 3pm and you probably won't even get to have lunch.

We've all been stuck here - the disorganised meeting. Sometimes more often than we would like.

So what can you do to keep your meetings short, sharp and efficient?

The solutions are easier than you might think...

Welcome to the CommitteeManager blog

We are a team committed to helping people work together efficiently and productively.

So much of our lives are spent working with teams and committees; meetings, group emails, conference calls and project planning sessions. But most teams struggle to get the best out of their members due to a lack of organisation and a lack of focus.

This blog has been set up to provide helpful, practical advice on getting the most out of your meetings and groups. We will be covering topics ranging from efficiency tips, new ideas you may want to explore, to long term strategic planning.

When we're not helping provide tips and tricks about efficiency, we build CommitteeManager, an online application that can revolutionise the management of your board, committee and project team obligations.
