Modern business takes teamwork. No one can do it alone. That’s why today’s corporate environments are designed to facilitate people working together. Computer networking helps bring employees into sync, but even more important is the sort of face time you can only get by meeting in person-provided meetings are run efficiently.
Anyone who’s ever put a meeting together knows just how time-consuming it can be. Whether it’s an everyday meeting or a large business event, productive meetings require planning and preparation. Here are some common dilemmas and their solutions:
- Dilemma: You have lots of handouts that may get lost in the pile.
Solution: An easy way to organize meeting materials is to prepare binders with tab dividers for all participants. The divider tabs make it simple for everyone to follow along as the meeting goes from topic to topic. Use framed view binders for a polished look.

-Dilemma: You don’t know how to present some important information.
