Virtuous Meetings takes you inside the new world of interactive large group
meetings. In business, in government, in international forums,
participants are being given an exciting new role in generating group
solutions and understanding. With the integration of communications
technology into face-to-face meetings, every participant now has a “voice”
in the meeting -- the ability to actually participate! Active co-creation is
replacing the old model of one-way presentations and top-down decisions.

Large meetings are increasingly
important and their possibilities
are transforming.

Technology + Design for
High Engagement in Large Groups

“How can you make your voice heard? How do you work productively in large meetings? It is astonishing how convincing the arguments of the authors are – and how helpful. As an experienced member of parliament, who has attended meetings around the globe for decades, I can only lean back and recommend: Read this book. The time it takes to read it will be paid back tenfold in efficiency gains.”

Dr. Hans-Peter Martin
author of international bestsellers The Global Trap and Bitter Pills, and 15 year member of the European Parliament

Gaining consensus and building solutions with a large group of people is critical today – whether it is forging international agreements with hundreds of stakeholders, or generating alignment among large leadership teams spread around the globe. The way large meetings are conducted is having an increasing impact on how we solve the world’s problems, and who will flourish in the new economy.

The notion of one person standing up in front of the whole group and talking, while everyone else listens passively as an “audience” has been overturned. Virtuous Meetings is a practical guide to understanding what the alternative is and how it works.
