Ep57 | Donna McGeorge – Author of The 25 Minute Meeting

Donna McGeorge is the author of The 25 Minute Meeting – Half the Time, Double the Impact
As Speaker, Author and Mentor, Donna McGeorge helps organisations, executives and leaders adapt to the disruption of the traditional working model and embrace both the now of work and future of work anywhere, anytime.
She empowers managers to create work environments, interactions and relationships that engage employees and make them want to show up, play nicely, and get the work done.
Donna has worked with managers and leaders throughout Australia and Asia–Pacific for over 20 years. She delivers practical skills, training, workshops and facilitation to corporates — such as Nissan Motor Company, Jetstar, Medibank Private and Ford Motor Company — so they learn to manage their people well and produce great performance and results.
Donna is the author of five books including the one we are going to explore today, The 25 Minute Meeting, published by Wiley.
