Improve Your Meetings With Darren Chait

Native to sunny Sydney, Australia, Darren Chait is the San Francisco-based Co-founder of the meeting notes platform HUGO – voted one of the top ten most innovative companies of 2021 By Fast Company. He joins Ryan to discuss how to avoid soul crushing meetings, keeping everyone on the same page and creating with no code.


Despite a global shift to a more decentralised way of working thanks to the various technologies, there’s still a disparity when it comes to how information from meetings is shared.
Building a new product in a vacuum can be dangerous. There’s not just the bugs issues, but there’s also the danger that the market demand for that product could have evaporated.
There’s never going to be an exact playbook. Whatever worked before may only work once.



‘ We had a million and one SAS tools that were powering collaboration already, Slack was already prolific and so on, but meetings were exactly the same.’

‘You can tell a lot about an org by their SAS stack.’

 ‘We definitely were a fan of not building underwater.’
