Why your business meetings are a waste of time

The meetings you have at work are about as productive a use of your time as a Snapchat post.

Almost very one will be multi-tasking in some way (probably checking their phone in the hope of something more interesting), while anyone who is remotely ‘participating’, will be checking Buzzfeed or somesuch, while making interested noises.
