THE PERFECT GIFT for that colleague who loves to catch up, brainstorm, or touch base.
'People at work spend a lot of the day in meetings.
Meetings are important because they give everyone a chance to talk about work.
Which is easier than doing it.'
'Rudd attends meetings remotely from his home office.
He has three telephones, two Swiss desk intercoms, a fax machine and a wall-mounted theremin.
Sometimes nobody speaks to him for days.'

Jason Hazeley & Joel Morris are the award-winning authors of the bestselling Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups series.
They write for Charlie Brooker's BAFTA award-winning Wipe shows, and co-wrote Cunk on Shakespeare, Cunk on Christmas and Cunk on Britain. They have also written for the award-winning Murder in Successville, the award-winning Miranda, the award-winning Mitchell & Webb, the award-winning Armstrong & Miller and a long list of shows and people both award-winning and so-far-award-avoiding.
They created and wrote the critically lauded but as yet un-awarded Angstroem for BBC Radio 4, and helped write both the award-winning Paddington movies. They are co-creators of spoof local newspaper The Framley Examiner (awards pending) and the bestselling but still-waiting-to-be-award-winning offbeat travel guides Bollocks to Alton Towers and Far from the Sodding Crowd.
They present the podcast Rule of Three (Guardian Guide Best 50 Podcasts 2018 - is that an award?) and divide their time between their office, where they keep their awards, and an award-winning pub.
