Boston Meeting Planning Tips1. Introduce attendees at the beginning. For groups of 20 or less, take a few minutes to let everyone introduce themselves. This can help break the ice and makes people feel acknowledged.
2. Share an agenda ahead of time. Too many meeting attendees will show up unprepared and this can prevent them from getting the most out of the meeting. Draft up and share the agenda with all attendees ahead of time so they can focus on the topics and tasks at hand.
3. Set aside time or questions. Meetings can easily run over the scheduled time and become less than productive when there are too many interruptions. As you work your way through the agenda, let everyone know there will be time for questions at the end of each agenda item. This will help everyone stay focused on the message while giving them a chance to participate and contribute.
