    Same as "rock your world" or "We will, we will rock you!". – Victor Bazarov Oct 8 '15 at 15:28

    Yes, rock here is a verb in the imperative mood. "Make your meeting proceed in a really cool way", "do your best at the meeting", "impress other participants during your meeting", something like that. – CowperKettle Oct 8 '15 at 15:41

Definition 3 for Rock (Transitive Verb) at merriam-webster fits here:

to rouse to excitement (as by performing rock music)

Neal may be trying to boost Georgie's confidence and ego for a meeting at Georgie's work.
