Publisher's Summary

Today, the very word ‘meeting’ conjures up images of time wasted in badly lit, airless offices. People sitting around tables unsure why they are there and wishing they were somewhere else. Hour after hour. Day after day. Will There Be Donuts? is business expert David Pearl’s first book and he draws on his two decades of consulting with some of the biggest companies in the world to re-educate the listener on how to hold meetings and, crucially, how to make them great. His client list is a who’s who of FTSE and NYSE names and they seek his advice on how to engage employees at every level to make their meetings more efficient, effective and engaging. At every level of an organisation, not just the very top. if your meetings are ineffective then it’s likely that your business is too.

Will There Be Donuts? will reinvigorate you as a person and as an employer/employee.
