Elon Musk.. You want better run meetings, eh? Then Merry Christmas we have the platform for you!

We have all read and heard a lot about Elon Musk these last few months.  From his views on how to run a business, how to motivate his people even how to participate in meetings.

Now, we are not on board with all his working suggestions;

  1. Avoid excessive meetings
  2. Get rid of frequent meetings unless it is urgent
  3. Walk out of a meeting if you are not adding value

Working long hours at high intensity is not a winning proposition Elon but having different workplace meetings is.

Each month, workers spend 31 hours in unproductive meetings* and the current video meetings platforms fall short of solving this problem.

So, Elon, do we have the tool for you!  Hearsay is a cloud based B2B productivity tool that makes your important workplace conversations work better.

Here are the top 5 ways it can help:

  1. An agenda for your meeting that is on screen at all times to make it easy to run the meeting
  2. Live tagging of key points during the meeting so you never miss an important point again
  3. Extra space for more note-taking and action items that are captured in the moment
  4. An AI transcription delivered into your conversations folder so you can easily access and review
  5. Highlights, notes and actions that can be emailed straight to attendees after you hang up saving time and ensuring everyone is on the same page about what was agreed

Don’t walk out of meetings, just have ones that are more efficient, more productive, more connected and … and ultimately more joyful.

Not wrong but not entirely right either. Prior to the pandemic churning out as much work as possible in ...
