In our line of work we spend a lot of time in meetings with clients, artists and everyone in between. So today we’re taking a closer look at this to figure out when and whether meetings are necessary and how we can make them more efficient. From in person meetings to video chat and short form group chat, we also cover some alternative meeting techniques and developments in the software space to help make creative meetings suck a bit less.
