As most of us know, business meetings of any kind are generally boring, mundane and virtually unnecessary. In motivational keynote speaker Jon Petz’s book Boring Meetings Suck, there are easy ways to reverse those attitudes by his “get it, get it done and get out” application mantra.

This two hundred and twenty page hard cover book has red and black doodles of scribbled titled words on lined paper on the front jacket with six reviews on the back and book descriptions in the inserts including an author biography. In addition to contents and forward pages, there are acknowledgments, about the author and index pages. There were no noticeable grammatical or typographical errors.

In his book, Petz drives the point home that too much time and effort is wasted in company meetings, conference calls, webinars and even group brain-storming. He blames it not only on the person running the meeting but also the attendants. He cajoles, mocks and begs for all participants to realize the utter waste in these unproductive meetings and to either stop doing them or make them more interesting. He provides simple answers to making them exciting, purposeful and entertaining.

He touts that cell phones should be turned on, games played to promote participation for individual and group interactions, white boards used and everyone be on the clock for starting and ending the meetings. He comes up with innovative ways for not only the facilitator but the attendee to accept their responsibilities in every meeting they attend.

Gone are the days of overdone PowerPoint with read aloud, following the words productions or cutesy animated artwork. It gets down to the nitty-gritty of actually accomplishing something during a meeting by suggesting whomever comes in last takes notes (thus the paper is passed on as the next person enters the room), removing all chairs in the room so everyone has to stand and think at the same time and promoting polling through social media. He also includes several helpful and informative websites for further references.

It is an excellent resource for the person heading the meeting as it gives detailed instructions and recommendations on how to have a successful, meaningful, productive meeting, and attendees are challenged to learn how to change the meeting’s dynamics, give constructive criticism and even leave the room if necessary.

The book is recommended to be given to all upcoming and seasoned sales managers, set-in-their-ways business owners and even small group speakers along with anyone who has to attend such boring events and need viable resources to get out of them.
