Event Details

Effective Meeting Skills

Meetings are the life blood of organisational communication and team work. However, there is a skill behind ensuring all meetings are effective, and necessary. How often do meetings you attend, or lead, feel like a chore that you just need to get through?

In this interactive workshop you will learn what makes a good meeting, what can go wrong in meetings, and techniques to make them more effective for everyone involved. You will also get the chance to practice Chairing skills and getting constructive feedback.

This workshop is based on over 30 years of experience attending and leading meetings. Rob will share his successes and failures in a highly participative, stimulating and fun way.

The workshop will cover: 

  • Why meetings fail.
  • What can you do to prepare for a successful meeting.
  • Top tips for chairing meetings.
  • Pitfalls to avoid when leading subjects while chairing.
  • Getting agendas and papers to work for you.
  • What to do at the end of the meeting.
