Matt Homann From Filament On Making Unreasonable Requests

We use unreasonable requests to make people better at asking for things.

Most meetings we’re accustomed to – I think most of us would agree – are ordinary, at best.

By contrast, Filament, a radically different Startup in St Louis, designs and facilitates extraordinary meetings.

In this episode of STL Community Cast, Matt explains the creative approach Filament uses to increase participation and solve problems that matter the most.

The objective of a meeting is usually to make something better, or create something new. Over years of planning meetings, Matt realized the meeting process itself is crucial to achieving these things. And that is often overlooked, at a high cost.
