Inclusion Card: Side Chatter
In this episode, Ashley and Noel talk to Annette Jensen about the Side Chatter card, which is played when people are having side conversations that not everyone in the meeting can hear. Annette talks about how much time her company spends in meetings, how leaving on time can help a meeting to have better focus, turning video on in remote meetings, making meetings interesting and shares her worst meeting story (it involves a real wastepaper basket and fake paper).
