The New Meeting: It's a Verb, Not a Noun

Research* shows that today's employees can spend up to 80% of their workdays collaborating. As a result, meetings — our primary method of working together  — have become mere way points in an ongoing collaborative process. This is a major shift from the way we used to think about meetings, which we regarded as events with a beginning and an end.

Is Your Company Losing Money on Its Remote Employees?

Research* shows that approximately 65% of enterprise meetings now include remote participants. The reasons are obvious, including endeavoring to leverage a diverse global workforce, saving money on office overhead, and — in some cases  taking advantage of less expensive local labor.

Streamlining Our Marketing Meetings with Co-browsing

Our marketing meetings at Prysm have several different purposes – campaign planning, design reviews, weekly status, one-on-one working sessions – the list goes on. The content we need to share in those meetings varies. With the recent release of co-browsing, we’ve been able to streamline the prep required for any meeting, as well as to dramatically enhance the meeting experience itself.

Co-Browsing: Taking Collaboration to a Whole New Level

When you think of the word "collaboration," you probably think of meetings (online or offline), messaging, screen sharing, file sharing, and maybe even video conferencing. These activities have become not only standard in most business environments, but also a critical part of getting work done.

Four Ways to Get More Out of Your Prysm-Powered Meetings

I was talking to one of our sales reps the other day, and he told me something very interesting: he frequently speaks with Prysm users who don’t know about some of our best features! (Reminds me of a guy I used to date, but that’s a story for another time.)

Because I’m passionate about our product, I thought I’d take a couple minutes to highlight some of the cool features that you might not know about or that you might not be using to their fullest extent.

Meeting Technology 2017: The Struggle is (Still) Real

I had a chat the other day with an employee of a large, well-known tech company. She told me a story that really surprised me. She said that the meeting technology used at her company was so terrible that it was not only impacting productivity; it was actually making people hate their jobs.

Meetings 3.0:  Five Ways to Turn Initial Presentations Into Real Sales and Customer Relationships

It's the hallmark of rookie sales reps — the rote PowerPoint presentation, delivered to every new customer and prospect with little to no variation in content and no time for discovery or feedback. The one-size-fits all presentation is unlikely to come across as personalized or inspired, and rarely leads to a sale. When you're trying to impress a prospect with your understanding of their business and commitment to their success, this is simply a poor strategy.

Five Reasons I Don't Want to Attend Your Meeting

While I love people, I can be downright curmudgeonly when it comes to meetings. After all, I'm a w-r-i-t-e-r. My work is typically solitary. In my mind, every moment I'm in a meeting is a moment I'm not writing. And considering the (lack of) value I've derived from and contributed to the meetings I've attended over the considerable length of my career, it's no wonder that each new invite has me scrambling for reasons not to attend.

Infographic: Meetings Have Lost Their Mojo

Oh, meetings. It must be hard to be so unpopular. But let's face it — you rarely live up to your promise. You bore without purpose. You masquerade as a working session, then reveal yourself as an endless PowerPoint. You purport to offer a quick, important update, then wander aimlessly for an hour.
