Effective Meetings

How many times have you heard “another meeting?”? And yet meetings provide a fantastic opportunity to mobilize teams and groups and get things in gear. If this is not the result of most of your meetings, this workshop is for you. Meetingitis is mostly due to poor quality rather than quantity of the meetings. Good meetings do not happen by chance; they are carefully planned and skillfully facilitated.

Discover solutions so that your meetings are a good investment of time and resources: yours as well as participants’. Over and above technical aspects, we’ll also consider human elements that help create a meaningful experience. Learn the key process: start with a clear objective, encourage democratic participation, and end with everyone on the same page. You will achieve results in line with set objectives instead of a waste of time and energy.
