Just bullshit it mate, say what you cover in your meetings and what affect that has on the business/your work then try and relate it to what the job description of the role youre applying for is

Or just say what you have gained from it (just make it up, if nothing) i.e. you hadn't really attended business meetings before you took on this role and now you have you have gained insight in to how they are conducted and then give an example of some influence you have had in the metting (again, beef it up if its only a small influence)

Just make sure you relate it somehow to the description of the role that you're currently applying for
