Costing your company millions of dollars

How is money lost by boring speakers and misled meetings?

There are only a few specific areas where you can isolate actual lost revenue or lost income or profits. Meetings is not one of them. But you and I know many managers and leaders spend three-quarters of their days in meetings. Now tell me again how much meetings cost you? No one really knows but Inc. Magazine estimates every hour of meetings costs one thousand dollars in personnel costs alone. That is just the price of business.

But when meetings really must work, sales meetings with outside customers, office meetings where the information being conveyed is vital; legal information; company policies; workplace issues, how much information is going unconveyed when your leadership is boring?

An article in INC Magazine by David Finkel, stated that every two weeks his executive team met via conference call for 90 minutes. When he factored in the hard hourly cost of each of the participants, that meeting is costing over $1,000 per hour!

The only thing worse than a misled meeting is a boring meeting.
