Event Description:

A recent estimate suggests that employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States.  Even though important, not all meetings are effective.  How can your business use meetings and help save company time and engage your staff?
 
Join our guest speaker, Dr. Steven Rogelberg, Chancellor's Professor at University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and author of 
The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead your Team to Peak Performance (recently named by The Washington Post as one of the 10 leadership books to watch for in 2019), at this first Business Networking Luncheon of the year, as he teaches us about the "meeting science" that can bring learnings and solutions forward to solve the meeting "problem."
 
At this luncheon, you will learn:
  • How to transform your organization and team with innovative meeting practices and processes
  • How your team or organization can realize the true potential of a meeting
  • How company leaders are uniquely positioned to leverage this work and lead their team to peak performance
Come have lunch with your Chamber, make some connections, and start off your year with helpful information about an activity typically taken for granted - the meeting.

Rogelberg holds the title of Chancellor's Professor at University of North Carolina, Charlotte, for distinguished national, international, and interdisciplinary contributions. He is a Professor of Organizational Science, Management, and Psychology at UNC Charlotte, as well as the Director of Organizational Science.
