Attending a meeting doesn’t have to be pointless!
One of my pet hates is attending pointless meetings! To make sure I don’t go to any I ask five key questions before I send my acceptance.
1. Does is it have an aim?
There has to be a specific reason for the meeting and my skills and knowledge are needed in some way to achieve its aim. Without this you can find yourself wasting time and wishing you were elsewhere using your time more productively.
