Darren Chait on the effect meetings have on your company culture
Play • 32 min

Meetings. The bane of existence for many.

I get it.

We’ve all been in meetings that should have been an email. Or meetings where it’s someone just repeating numbers that could have easily been sent out as a video recording. But, how do you fix this problem and make the most out of your meetings?

I recently spoke with Darren Chait from Hugo about their limit of 4-hours of meetings per week, and how meetings (specifically, sharing meeting notes openly with your organization) can positively affect your culture.

About our guest:

Darren is the co-founder and COO of Hugo, a connected meeting notes software, and solving some of the pain around meetings is a cause close to his heart. He’s a self-diagnosed coffee-snob, regularly forced to part with $6 for a cup of coffee to get him through his day.
