Ah, the challenge of setting up a meeting, especially an all-day meeting that requires some participants to travel a significant distance to attend. Everyone needs to be able find a common day(s) when they can clear their schedule, while maintaining personal and business responsibilities. And of course, since virtually everyone in the business is attending, the timing must be co-ordinated to not interfere with operations, especially client service.
This can be a challenge, indeed, but it is important to get it right. Bad meetings are the bane of most businesses; good meetings I've learned are critical to growth and cohesion. We are getting it right, but it has been a challenge to find the few possible days when the planned meeting is right for everyone invited to attend.
