Whether you're hosting a monthly meeting or an annual conference in Silicon Valley, you want to make sure your meetings are as productive as possible. Keeping attendees focused and interested in what you are presenting is easier when you take a structured approach and choose the right setting for the event. Here are some common sense rules for hosting productive meetings in Silicon Valley:
Keys to a Productive Meeting in Silicon Valley
1. Send an agenda ahead of time. Get everyone up to speed quickly by providing key agenda items ahead of time. You can send this as a mass email a few days before the meeting or have printed agendas ready to share before the meeting begins.
2. Commit to a time frame. Meetings can easily run over a scheduled time if you don't make attempts to keep everyone on track. Follow the agenda items and pay attention to the clock so you can keep the meeting moving at a steady pace.
3. Schedule regular breaks. Very long meetings can make attendees lose interest and focus. Choose a venue that provides easy access to Silicon Valley's popular coffee shops and restaurants so you can schedule short breaks or a longer lunch break in the middle of a meeting or conference.
