Send an e-mail upfront
– No laptops
– No smartphones
– Only pen and paper
The only screen in the meeting?
The big screen connected to ONE laptop,

One person keeping track of time per topic.
One person moderating the conversations & conclude next steps.
Full attention, eyeballs reached, message received.
Listen first. Discuss. Define next steps.
