Successful Meetings in Naperville1. Create an agenda in advance. Avoid last-minute preparations and the risk of missing important details about the meeting by writing up an agenda in advance. Send this out to all attendees so they know what they need to focus on and are better prepared.
2. Stick to a block of time. Your attendees may start losing interest and focus after about an hour or two of a meeting without breaks. Schedule a meeting before or after lunch for a specific amount of time and commit to it. This can help avoid interruptions and keep everyone focused.
3. Plan group events. Give attendees a chance to get to know each other by planning a group event or outing around the meeting schedule. You could make a short trip out to Chicago to enjoy the city sites or head to a local restaurant in downtown Naperville for some socializing.
