ELISE KEITH is the founder and Meeting Maven for Lucid Meetings and founder and instructor for Meeting School. She leads their research, publication, and product management efforts, constantly seeking the best ways to make it easy for people to enjoy meetings that get work done. Leaders call her blog "a treasure trove of valuable info and guidance" and "a game-changer for our organization." When she isn't working on the industry-leading Lucid Meetings software platform, Elise shares her meeting expertise in presentations that audiences say are “inspiring,” “full of practical methods we can apply,” and “fill in all the gaps I didn't even know I had!” With a combination of experiences that gives her a unique perspective on meetings, Elise brings the awareness of a business owner, a software developer, a service provider, a researcher, and person who doesn’t like to have her time wasted, all combined with a deep expertise in meeting practice. She is the author of Where the Action Is: The Meetings That Make or Break Your Organization.
