Business meetings happen daily and involve people in various time zones across the globe…
CJ brings people and places together for a purpose when planning a meeting— always with a common objective, goal or an important decision to be made. The “devil is in the details” and the role of the meeting planner is to work with a given timeline and sometimes complex set of logistics to schedule meetings well in advance to ensure the executive meets primary business objectives.
Looking at a typical executive calendar, appointments and meetings are scheduled back-to-back, 8 hours a day – for weeks and sometimes months ahead. It’s important to get the logistics right the first time. Making a change to this type of calendar is costly and you can just imagine how many issues making changes may cause.
