Most marketers will be involved in about eight meetings per week. Sound like too many? These tips can help you cut down on unnecessary meetings and get the most out of existing ones.

Moreover, "state agenda items as questions," recommends the infographic. "This is a proven way to stimulate thinking and creativity as most of us like to challenge a question and want to answer it."
