Historical Reminiscents EP 41: Managing Meeting Madness

Photo of meeting room with table. Reads: Managing Meeting Madness"

Meetings and committees are part of professional life, more so if you happen to be spending your time inside academia. Despite the role meetings play in professional settings very few public history programs or history graduate training contains information on how to run an effective meeting, building agendas, and facilitating interdepartmental discussion.  In this episode I talk about agenda creation, my favourite kinds of meetings (yes, meetings can actually be enjoyable!), and tips for surviving meeting chaos.

I would love to hear your thoughts about the necessary evil that is meetings. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
