Meetings that energise…

Have you ever been to a meeting and felt like it wasn’t the best use of your time? Or, perhaps you find yourself questioning why you are even there? One thing is for sure, our time is valuable and a poorly organised meeting without an agenda can be ineffective and time-consuming.

Our course will help you to run meetings that are engaging, structured and deliver results, so you can gain more from meetings. Learn how to correctly assign roles to attendees to make sure minutes are taken and a chair is in place to keep the conversations on topic. Agenda setting is a key element in driving effective meetings to ensure all the important topics are covered and actioned.

Leave with confidence & a plan…

Within the course, we focus on communication skills, working to ensure that you leave us knowing how best to communicate with those around you in order to be effective in a meeting environment and achieve positive results.
