Mote has been shortlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year award 2016!
Analyze the calendar function on the computers, tablets and mobile devices of millions of executives, and what will you find? Wall-to-wall meetings. Even conservative estimates say that we spend more than a quarter of our working lives in meetings, and that over 50% of that meeting time is wasted.
Yet meetings appear central to the way process works in the vast majority of organizations – and no-one seems to want to tell the truth about them. Can you embody leadership through meetings? Can you innovate effectively through meetings? Is creativity evolved in meetings? Mote is that better meeting and a life-changing way forward. When you learn how to mote you open up the pathways to business success. Empower people, inspire innovation, promote productivity, and mote your way to your business goals. Mote is business process re-engineering.
Mote can transform YOUR business.
You can get your Mote on at the Super Meeting website!

“The essential guide to making meetings productive and purposeful not pointless and painful. A much needed reminder of the constituents of great meetings”
Dame Fiona Woolf CBE, Former Lord Mayor of London
“I have presided over Motes in the wards of the City of London as Alderman and Lord Mayor, a meeting with
its origins in the medieval trading era when collaboration facilitated competition. This book turns the Mote into a modern super meeting, the like of which we have not seen before. Not only does it save one of our scarcest resources – time – but the Spirit of Mote improves the way we work outside the meeting room.”
Mike Hughes, Director General Incorporated Society of British Advertisers (ISBA)
“The ‘meeting’ is an essential cog in business life, and we tolerate too many bad meetings. Why, and is there a better way? This book addresses the issue head on, suggesting an alternative, innovative approach which promises to transform the event into an experience which is both enjoyable and effective.”
Chris Satterthwaite, CEO Chime Communications
“This is an expert book written by a man whose job it has been to observe successful and unsuccessful meetings.
With ways all participants in meetings can make better use of their time and energy I suspect that a 20 per cent improvement in effective meetings in your company will lead to an identical improvement in productivity. That’s a book worth reading.”
Herve de Clerck, Founder of Adforum
“This book is about solving the contradictions of our human nature. Productive ideas are the result of building upon each other not fighting against each other. In a new life, David will create a Master in Business Simplification.”
