I’m retired but I went to hundreds, maybe thousands, of meetings. Two observations:
- You have to arrive early to get a bad seat. Nobody wants to sit at the table with the big shots. This is the opposite of going to a concert where you want to get there early.
- The more people there are at a meeting, the less likely it is that there is one person who understands everything that is going on. In a big organization, there a lots of people who are experts on their specialty but not on the big picture or other fields.
