Sam however believes that Carol does not herself run efficient meetings. Sam recommends setting meeting goals, and having a specific time frame for each agenda item. There is also the problem of flagging energy levels during the meetings; this is where Casey feels Marcus gets it right he brings fun to what hes talking about.
