It sounds a bit weird but on the other side, it is about time we see professionals (and volunteers or staff) of all sorts as a category of tools in designing better meetings.

(Jeff Hurt) Putting People And Learning Before Places And Spaces

“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah. Blah, blah, blah!”

The words fall from the speaker’s mouth to listener’s ears.
The more the speaker shares, the more the listeners quickly forget.
