Do you do your meetings by default? Or by design?

Meeting Boost

Meeting Boost is a systemic programme that will drastically improve your normal, day-to-day, internal meetings. It consists of a unique combination of:

  1. the strategic decision by top management to call a halt to the waste of resources as a result of poor meetings;
  2. specific competence training of people responsible for conducting meetings.

Many people in organizations complain about poor meetings: meetings are absolutely necessary, but they are not effective and not efficient, is what they observe. Yet, it is not easy to change the meeting culture or habits.

Meeting Boost offers a step-by-step programme that has proven to work. Since all organizations are different, how we implement these steps may vary.

Fixed steps include:

  1. Measure current meeting effectiveness and efficiency with our proprietary ROME ™ test (Return On Meeting Effort)
  2. A strategic workshop with top management to establish the main areas for improvement and the depth of our programme
  3. Establish exemplary behaviour for top management
  4. Train selected individuals in the organisation, and at the same time
  5. Conduct experiments to overturn existing habits 
  6. Make adjustments in organizational processes wherever needed
  7. Measure again with a final ROME test

Meeting Boost is the result of our 15 years of experience as Meeting Designers. We apply it to solve a structural and costly weakness in many organizations: poor day-to-day meetings. Please contact us and we will be happy to work out together how Meeting Boost can improve your meetings.

“MindMeeting’s ”Meeting Boost” programme has given us revolutionary improvements in our internal meetings. Participants (40-50 senior managers) gave an average Return on Investment of 45% for their efforts on ”curing” the meetings in our company. This programme stands out as the best HR investment in our organization of recent years.”

Giorgio Treves, Head of HR and Member of the Board of Volkswagen Financial Services Milan, Italy.

Meetings and your Communications in general

Impact Consultation

Whenever appropriate, we consult you on the impact of meetings in internal or external communication strategies. How do meetings relate to other means of communications and how does a meeting fit into a broader communications programme with an extended timeline?

Satisfaction is a very (very!) generic outcome!

Measuring Results

We can provide you with tools to measure the results of your meeting. Often this does not require complicated, heavily ICT-based instruments. Very pragmatically, we develop quantifiable targets and outcomes, defining these in the design process, together with you. Naturally, this includes the tools to obtain the data on such targets and the data analysis.

Note: many meeting organizers hold exit surveys that measure participants’ satisfaction with the meeting. Although valuable as an indicator, satisfaction is a very (very!) generic outcome.

“Education is not about moving content from A to B, it is about getting in the hearts and minds of students”

Education Design

The quote above is obviously related to Meeting Design is not about getting attendees to the right location. It’s about getting in their minds”. It suggests that modern education needs to do more than juggling content. A good lesson manages the expectations, behaviour, learning dynamics and emotions as well. All meant to give shape to the learning process of both students and teacher. The result should be engagement leading to in-depth learning.

This is where Meeting Design kicks in. Because we design these processes in meetings as well.


MindMeeting developed a card game that helps teams of educators to create ideas for lessons. This game, ‘Moredu’, can be ordered shortly, distributed by MindMeeting.

It can be used autonomously, and also integrated in the one-day seminar for teachers and teams.
