There is the formal meeting, which can contain a collection of informal ones and the infamous hidden agenda. There is the audience which is present and the ones that are not. There are multiple roles for positions and some of those can be played simultaneously. There is a surprising number of relationships in the room and those can change rapidly. All of this happens in a whirling dust storm of past, present, and future concerns, including ones which have little or nothing to do with the declared purpose of the meeting.
When someone asks you how the meeting went, you may well reply, "Which one?"
