An Author on Meetings

I believe that meetings are the place to challenge the status quo, harness the creative energies of team members and to create new possibilities for the organisation. Hence, the reason that I got a huge kick out of seeing my quotation in the below article on meetings on Hallmarkhotels.com
According to Maxine Attong, Author of the ‘Lead Your Team to Win’, ‘Intel Corporation is an example of an organisation that takes its meetings very seriously. Walk into any conference room at any Intel factory or office anywhere in the world and you will see a poster on the wall with a series of simple questions about the meetings that take place there: Do you know the purpose of this meeting? Do you have an agenda? Do you know your role? Every new employee, from the most junior production workers to the highest ranking executive, are required to take the company’s course on effective meetings. For years, the course was taught by CEO Andy Grove, who believed that good meetings were such an important part of Intel’s culture that it was worth his time to train all employees.’ See the full article below.
