In lockdown, as a team we’ve collectively been feeling low from solo working, zoom calls, homeschooling and the general mundanity. We decided to put walk and talk meetings into action and we’ve seen huge increases in happiness, productivity and the general wellbeing of the team.

Plenty of anecdotal evidence also suggests that walking meetings lead to more honest exchanges with employees and are more productive than traditional sit-down meetings.
