But indicates that the second part is contrary to the first.  Concise means "brief in form but comprehensive in scope."  Something that is concise is complete.  Consider using other adjectives that give a clearer description of what you mean to say.  Did you have a brief agenda but a lengthy discussion, perhaps?  The thesaurus can help you find the right words.
