Schedule Meetings that Work - Opening Keynote

Martin Moore-Ede, M.D., Ph.D. in his insightful, if little known book, The 24 Hour Society, observes that the lowest alertness in a day for most people is between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. Highest alertness is between 9 a.m. and noon, and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. So, schedule your most important conferences accordingly.

A person's alertness will vary due to hours of consecutive duty, hours of duty in the proceeding week, irregular hours, monotony on the job, timing and duration of naps, environmental lighting, sound, aroma, temperature, cumulative sleep deprivation over the past week, and much more.
