The Secret to Running a Killer Meeting? Fun, Says Arabella Pollack.

Columbia’s Bwog recaps faculty member Arabella Pollack’s Friday, November 14th Strategic Communications presentation, How to Run a Killer Meeting.

“The key to a killer meeting is not, as one might expect, arsenic in the complimentary brownies,” says Bwog author Joseph Powers, “but preparation, easy communication, and the incorporation of fun.”

“What Ms. Pollack believed most crucial to the success of a meeting, and the theme she came back to most frequently over the course of the night, was the incorporation of fun,” Powers writes. “Fun, she argued, not only inspires greater participation and engagement, it temporarily breaks down hierarchies and promotes the collaboration and free communication that are so vital.”
