Who called this meeting again?

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words… How many more (virtual) meetings do we have these days?
Here’s some surprising stats. Research shows time spent in meetings is rising 8-10% annually. In 2020,
the average employee had 8 meetings/week across all company sizes. That number jumped to 12/week for
management, and 17/week for C-suites. It’s estimated the average employee wastes 30 hours/month in
“unproductive meetings”, leaving 45% of employees feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of meetings
they attend.

Coffee and Conversation with Fengru Lin

When it comes to the future of food, everyone’s talking about names like Impossible and Beyond.
But that’s just one part of the big picture. For instance, dairy is the largest food segment in the world,
and it’s on the cusp of huge breakthroughs. Hear all about it in our latest episode with our host
Shashank Bengali and Fengru Lin from TurtleTree Labs.



NASA Launch

It’s estimated Mars is at least 4.5 billion years old. But February 2021 may be one of the busiest months
in Martian history (at least from Earth’s perspective) – with missions from China, the UAE and NASA
all reaching the Red Planet this month. Congratulations, Team Earth!
