New Year's resolution: Run more productive meetings in 2020

Companies large and small rely on meetings with staff and/or clients to communicate ideas, solve problems, and present initiatives. In fact, over 55 million meetings occur every day in America. Yet one in three meetings waste time, contributing to an estimated $37 billion squandered ever year due to unproductive meetings.

So for focused and specific strategies designed to steer meetings straight and maximize productivity, I asked three experts for their recommendations.
