This year, make time for the important things

At this time of year we often think about setting new goals and resolutions, and how this year will be better than the last.

We at nsquared believe that we need to use our time efficiently throughout the day. During meetings our minds can be easily led astray and attention can be lost by distractions on our personal devices.

To have efficient and engaging meetings, you need to think about how people are interacting and engaging with each other as well as the content.

There are a number of things you can do to help people put their devices away. Here are a few tips and hints that we live by:

  • Interesting Content. One of the easiest ways to keep people focused is to feed them content that keeps their ears open and wanting more.  
  • Personal devices are forbidden. These are high contenders of worst distractions to have at meetings. Take it from the pros, and leave your tablets, phones and laptops at your desk next time you go to a meeting.  
  • Invest in an nsquared digitable. We've managed to keep our meetings exciting by getting our team collaborating and engaging around a digital table. With a digital table, you can be assured that all eyes will be focused on the same content, and interaction levels will go through the roof.
