Effective Meetings

Many of us spend a lot of time in meetings and too often they are time-stealers. Meetings can leave us feeling confused about what is trying to be achieved and there is no clear process for decision-making.

On the other hand, a good meeting is energising, adds clarity and leaves you feeling you’ve really achieved something. This one-day course covers meeting fundamentals, roles, tips and tricks for engagement. Imagine people leaving your meetings with a clear sense of ‘time well spent’ and achievement!
