I was stimulatedP1000691 by a recent piece in Fast Company magazine where 2 business founders had key meetings while they ran together. It reminded me that when Mike Scally and I set up Lifeskills International we used to do just that. I have always been a runner. Mike was more reluctant but we found it great to get away from the office and all the interruptions and actually felt that the exercise also helped us to think. It worked because we were the only 2 shareholders. Not sure how this would work out if there were 3 or more. Would be very interested to hear if anyone has tried this. Now we are involved in a new company dedicated to teaching Life Skills to help people to live happier we now sometimes have walking meetings. At present just the two of us but our much younger fellow directors may well be interested in trying an actual walking rather than running board meeting. I will let you know how it works out.
