2) Don’t say anything until the meeting is half over; this stamps you as being wise.

3) Be as vague as possible; this prevents irritating the others.

4) When in doubt, suggest that a subcommittee be appointed.

5) Be the first to move for adjournment; this will make you popular – it’s what everyone is waiting for.
