• and 40% believe it is the biggest cost to their organisation

Doodle also investigated what was considered a ‘good’ or a ‘bad’ meeting.
They discovered that:
‘Good meetings’ were reported to include being face to face, preferably held in the morning, had clear objectives and agendas, and not too many people in the room.

Many of us can relate.
