Moderator (discussion forum)

I love meetings, I think they could be really interesting and exciting. I have been working with different types of meeting processes to gather information or starting a culture for people to learn from each other. I am also very interested of structuring ordinary meetings, a book called “Death by Meeting” by Patric Lencioni inspired me a lot in this area.
