I'd challenge the decisions on using TODO keywords for people
although the Org manual also suggests to do so.

TODO keywords are single classification. This means that you are not
able to assign more than one person to a task. I'm using @tags for
the same purpose which allows me to assign tasks to more than one
person and keep TODO keywords independent to the person. For
example, when you resolve a task, you lose the information who was
assigned to the task.

Therefore, I'd use:

* Meeting

** TODO Prepare the demo     :@Fred:
** STARTED Contact customer  :@Sara:
** TODO Work on the document :@Fred:@Lucy:@Mike:

More on that on
https://karl-voit.at/2019/09/25/categories-versus-tags/ including an
elisp snippet I'm using to filter according to @name-tags.

YMMV. HTH.
