Hello, I'm Carrie
Founder of FewerFasterBolder
Meetings matter greatly to me because real people spend so much time in them. They are a huge white space for improvement. That's why I brought together 20 years of working in organisational culture change and my PhD in systems thinking to transform how we think about meetings. Many organisations have tried to improve their meetings with limited gains. My research shows that we need to address the system, not just the meeting and that's exactly what FewerFasterBolder does.
The science behind FewerFasterBolder
FewerFasterBolder is anchored in research conducted by Dr Carrie Goucher at the University of Cambridge. Her research was described as ‘game changing for meeting science’ by characterising meetings as a complex, systems problem and helping to explain why meetings have resisted improvement for so long.
Carrie's studies reveal what underpins successful meetings: culture, behaviours and many interlinked factors outside of the meeting itself. Her research shows that on their own, surface-level tools like agendas have little impact on how effective a meeting is.
FewerFasterBolder is a practical, intuitive toolkit which addresses what really makes meetings worth the time. It goes deeper to tackle what's going on under the surface and focuses effort on what has a profound impact - not only on the meeting but on outcomes and relationships back in the real world.Our philosophy
