Work with Purpose | Episode #60 | 6 June 2022


Meetings can consume a large part of our working day, so we expect them to be productive and meaningful. While many of us ‘endure’ hours of seemingly wasteful meeting time, we need to remember that meetings are essentially a platform for unlocking the potential of people working collectively. They are a place where organisational culture forms and takes hold.  

In this week’s episode we’re joined by Sean Innis, Principal of Damala St Consulting, and Dr Subho Banerjee, Deputy CEO, Research and Advisory at the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG). They speak with Megan Aponte-Payne, IPAA ACT Future Leaders Committee Member, on designing and conducting meetings that work for you and for your organisation. They explore improving meeting effectiveness, striking a balance between being well prepared and adaptive in meetings, structuring meetings to enhance organisational culture, and replicating ‘corridor chats’ in virtual meetings.
