Since its publication last week, Read This Before Our Next Meeting rose to the #1 most popular book on the Kindle in the world. It’s been downloaded by thousands of people (thanks to our sponsor, Citrix) and is sure to help hundreds of organizations change what they do all day. New York Times bestselling author of Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends, Tim Sanders, says “If you live meeting-to-meeting, this book will save your business life.”

You’re not the only ones who think the meeting problem is huge time-suck.

Al Pittampalli, author of the book, is helping companies and individuals take back their days by having productive, decision-supporting (as opposed to decision-avoiding) meetings. If you’ve found yourself looking at the clock during a meeting recently, wishing for a memo instead of a 45-minute conference call, or wondering how to get real work done in your company, see what Al and his team of meeting culture warriors are up to below. Join to become your organization’s meeting culture warrior and tell us if your company’s meeting culture should be on the “best” or “worst” list.

Learn the Principles

Join Al for a live two-part webinar series on how to solve your company’s meeting problem. Hosted by Citrix, the webinar will teach you to conduct meetings that support decision-making and action, introduce change in your company, and how to instill (not kill) the sense of urgency in your organization. 

Tell Us Your Story

Tell us about the meetings you’ve experienced, and your company may be chosen for a meeting culture overhaul: Free books, posters and a live webinar with Al Pittampalli to help your managers and meeting leaders transition smoothly to the Modern Meeting Standard. Submit yours here.
