Unlock the power of agility in your leadership meetings.

We aim to solve the meeting madness problem by disrupting the rigid and slow nature of formal meetings. For that, we introduce the concept of agility in companies' current meeting processes.

Is meeting madness affecting your company?

Did you ever come out of a leadership meeting and felt you have just wasted your time? Executives and boards are spending up to 70% of their time in meetings and 83% feel frustrated with the outcome. Today, meetings take too long and prevent you from achieving your objectives.

Sherpany DISCOURS®

The clever way keep track of decisions

Use comments to asynchronously discuss key topics and questions with other meeting participants

It allows attendees to anticipate discussions, engage in conversations, take decisions and ask for clarification before the meeting starts.

Pre-discuss and align on the agenda items with the chairperson before publishing the meeting

This frees up a lot of synchronisation time between meeting organisers and participants.

Sherpany MINUTES®

The clever way keep track of decisions

Have a minutes template pre-filled with agenda items

This will save organisers time in writing the minutes during the meeting and in organising them after the meeting.

Integration with DISCOURS® for full view on discussions

Meeting organisers can easily follow key discussions before the meeting, with the help of comments, and during the meeting, while writing the minutes.

Selectively publish minutes for review before their approval

Minutes can be selectively published for review and commented on using Sherpany DISCOURS®. This way, organisers and participants avoid the back and forth loops, and manage everything in one meeting tool.

Approve minutes outside formal meetings

Minutes don't need to await approval and viewing by participants until the next meeting. With a click, minutes can be approved by the secretary, the participants, and/or chairman as soon as they are finalised. This saves both organisers' and participants' valuable group time in meetings.

Sherpany TOPICS®

Master the matrix of information

Have a holistic view of topics or projects, regardless of their timespan

Leaders no longer have to search and scroll through hundreds of pages of minutes to find information on specific topics or projects. With a click, they get a single overview of the entire topic, its history and the related decisions and tasks.

Connect all information across meetings

With Sherpany TOPICS®, meeting organisers manage, plan and perform reviews of tasks and decisions with a one-stop-tool. This simplifies the work related to managing leadership meetings.
