Meetings: where thoughts are showered, skies made blue and people promise to 'action' vague concepts, while desperately hoping that everyone will have forgotten about it by the time the next one comes along.

This useful infographic, produced by fuze.com, outlines the various pitfalls and problems with office get-togethers, along with some solutions.

So, once you've read it, best bet is probably to organise a meeting in order to discuss what you've learnt, right?
