Much of my week seems to be spent attending meetings of one sort or another. Research from Deliveroo for Business has revealed British employees will sit through a mind numbing 9,776 meetings in their working life.

And my enjoyment of meetings are varied. Apparently one in ten of the employees who took part in the study admitted to having nodded off during a meeting at some point in their life. And 85 percent of those polled said they are much more likely to be enthusiastic about a meeting if good food and drink is laid on.

I like to think I make the most of any meeting, seeing them as good networking opportunities. But 26 percent of those polled said they have not listened to one word that was said - and 27 percent said they spent the duration of the meeting thinking about what they were going to have for dinner!

The Chamber offers a range of informative meetings and excellent networking opportunities. For more information call us on 0121 678 7488.
