The Annotated Meeting - An Exciting New Tool for Leading Dialogue and Building Consensus

Running meetings can be difficult and discouraging. The details and decisions are important. But miscommunication is rampant, and no one reads the minutes! Are you tired of referring back to a decision in a meeting only to find that everyone remembers it differently? Or no one remembers it at all?! Friend, what you need is an annotated meeting!

Annotated meetings are a simple-but-innovative technique. In an annotated meeting you take notes—in a specific format—right in front of the attendees via room-display and screen-share. By identifying and writing the key information, decisions, and action items in front of your participants, you’ll ensure that everyone is on the same page, that everyone agrees to their action items, and that the decisions made won’t get lost.

In this talk you’ll learn:

- How to annotate a meeting in real-time, in front of everyone
- How to get participants to sign off on their action items
- How to use annotation to lead effective meetings and reduce tangents
- Why Markdown rules, and what rules to use in your Markdown
- And simple tricks for guiding the dialogue and getting the results you need

All this in a fun and fast-moving Talk with stories to illustrate. Don’t let your meeting-time go to waste; learn the annotated meeting today!
