Dispute Resolution - 1 minute read

TEDx Oxford is only 5 days away (how did that happen!).  The latest in our series of favourite TED Talks confronts something that drains energy and resources in the work place.  

I am sure we have all been in bad meetings, regretting it the moment we arrive! (TED have even put together some data in the economic impact of meetings.)  Is there something we can do to stop them?

David Grady’s amusing talk about MAS (Mindless Acceptance Syndrome) will give you some great ideas about how to avoid a bad meeting before you even get to it!

Hedges are sponsoring TEDx Oxford 2017 which will bring together 12 speakers, including CEOs, entrepreneurs, professors, psychologists, writers, students, innovators and technologists to share their ideas on “X Changes Everything”.  

TEDx Oxford is on 5 February 2017 at the New Theatre Oxford starting at 10.30am. Tickets are on sale now at  If you want to give up a lazy Sunday to listen in awe, watch with wonder, learn new things and be truly inspired book soon, tickets are selling out fast!

An epidemic of bad, inefficient, overcrowded meetings is plaguing the world’s businesses — and making workers miserable. David Grady has some ideas on how to stop it.
