Description:

Meetings are an inescapable part of all our working lives but they don’t have to be something you dread! This course focuses on practical strategies for planning, running and evaluating face-to-face, blended and virtual meetings to ensure they are fit-for-purpose and a productive use of time. You’ll develop the skills you need in your meetings tool box to produce professional agendas, action-items and minutes for a variety of meeting types and formats. You’ll also learn our top troubleshooting tips for dealing with contentious issues and unwanted behaviours.
Improving your meeting skills won’t just help you in the job you’re in now – they’ll benefit you right throughout your working life. People who manage meetings well get noticed, are given more opportunities and responsibilities, and are often able to build on their successes and progress further and faster in their career, using their advanced communication skills to influence outcomes and achieve positive results.
This is not a ‘one-size fits all’ course. It can be tailored to suit the specific needs of your organisation and/or groups of participants (e.g. junior, intermediate or senior level staff)), as needed.
