Wednesday, October 16 | 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Dr. Steven Rogelberg discusses his best-selling book, "The Surprising Science of Meetings." The book brings a sharp and strategic light to an activity typically taken for granted – the meeting. A recent estimate suggests that employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States. Sadly, most meetings fail to engage us, or even worse, blatantly disregard our time. There is now a meeting science that can bring solutions forward to solve the meeting “problem”. Dr. Rogelberg, a highly decorated and award-winning researcher, speaker, and teacher shares an exciting evidence-based path for organizations, boards, community groups, committees, and leaders to realize the true potential of meetings and assure ROI on what is a massive investment of time.

"In workplaces around the world, meetings are where productivity and creativity go to die. Steven Rogelberg is the world's leading expert on how to fix them, and here he shares the best evidence on how we can stop wasting time and falling victim to groupthink."| Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

"Pointless, exhausting meetings are the bane of most employees' existence. But it does not have to be this way. In The Surprising Science of Meetings, Steven G. Rogelberg, a meetings science researcher with two decades of experience, draws from studies, corporate surveys and success stories to share how you can make meetings actually useful." | The Huffington Post

"If one of your New Year's resolutions is to spend less time sitting in or leading useless meetings, this book is for you." | Washington Post
