Hi everyone! 

Welcome to my third Skillshare Class, "How To Hold Any Meeting In 30 Minutes (Or Less)"! 

In this class, I'll share with you some of my personal tips and best practices to avoid the dreaded neverending meetings that are the nemesis of so many of us in the professional world.  Bottom line:  there is absolutely NO reason why any meeting should last longer than 30 minutes.  With what I'm going to teach you in this class, you'll be able to not only add valuable time back into your workday, but you'll be able to get information more quickly, and use it more efficiently, too!
