Into the Heart of Meetings
Basic principles of meeting design
300+ pages | English edition
Eric de Groot & Mike van der Vijver
“The title of this book is no coincidence. We believe that meetings can only
be successful when looking at the meeting process and the participants holistically. The meeting is a temporary ecosystem in which everything hangs together. Consequently, in order to be effective, the programme must be an experience that goes beyond the mere logical and cerebral. It has to connect with participants at a deeper level so that they connect at a deeper level. We call this Meetings With Heart and Soul.”
Into the Heart of Meetings is a book about the essential processes that take place during meetings and how to influence these processes through Meeting Design in order to obtain the best outcomes. Into the Heart of Meetings is the first book ever about Meeting Design, a new profession that has taken shape over the past 10 years but that is still far from mature.This book offers you our latest insights and experiences about meetings as a form of communications.
It introduces the main principles that underlie the profession, as well as the main practical issues that Meeting Designers face and need to solve. As a result, Into the Heart of Meetings is both an explorative study and a textbook. Its enormous number of practical cases puts the content in day-to-day working practice.
Into the Heart of Meetings was our first book, published in 2013. Our next book is due in the course of 2015. If you want to be informed about our publications, please click here.
