This course will give delegates practical techniques to plan and lead effective meetings that achieve their objectives. It will help them turn their meetings from dreaded events to effective, productive and enjoyable sessions. In many organisations running a meeting is a skill that staff are just expected to ‘pick up’, this often results in too many ineffective meetings leading to inefficient and frustrated staff.
This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to improve and refresh their leadership of meetings. It is especially useful to staff who have just taken up a management role and are new to running meetings.
The course is delivered in conjunction with Ann Schwarzenbach of Data & Process Advantage (DPA), who has extensive practical knowledge and experience of working with and leading teams and training staff from a wide range of industries and roles.
Instruction will be delivered using presentations and practical exercises to reinforce key messages and give delegates an opportunity to practice the techniques. Delegate interaction is actively encouraged to explore and discuss the issues delegates face and how they can apply the various techniques.
