Event description

Description

"We have a 'meeting culture'"
"So often I feel like I just sat there, and didn't have anything to contribute"
"The loud voices dominate and the quiet voices get shut out"
"We have all these meetings, and no decent follow up"
"It's all talk and no action"
"I spend too much time in meetings when I should be actually working"
"We we're discussing the right topic, but with the wrong people"

In my many years of working with clients, in all sectors and of all shapes and sizes, this is the one common theme that seems to run through them all. Problems with meetings.

_Not having the right people, at the right place, at the right time, costs money.
_Not having an effective strategy to translate the outputs into meaningful and relevant work costs even more money.
_Not allowing all voices to be heard, leads to poor creative input and silos between 'the loud ones' and 'the quiet ones'.
_Not having everyone 'sing from the same hymn sheet' causes confusion, lack of direction and a drop in efficiency - not to mention well-being and happiness

I've found this frustrating and want to help others tackle this common, but easy to solve problem.

So I want to share this with you all to start a revolution of teams stopping to think, and collaborating and listening like pros.

We spend all our time at work and a lot of in meetings - let's make sure that those who come are able to give their best and leave feeling a sense of satisfaction, ownership and motivation for what comes after your time round the table.

This one day immersive, experiential and high energy workshop will show you:

_What behaviours contribute to poor meetings
_Why actions don't get done
_Why some voices don't get heard and what this can lead to
_What happens when a supportive accountability framework is not in place

And I'll then equip you with what you need to:

_Eradicate your own behaviours that hold you back from being the best in these situations
_Get the very best out of your meetings - every time
_Get the very best out of your team and those who join you - every time
_Implement a strong, rigorous yet supportive framework for accountability
_Listen to understand, rather than listen to respond (we've all done this in meetings right?)

By the end of the day you will have:

_Learned what you need to change about yourself (and others)
_Changed it
_Practised running the most mindblowing meetings
_Understood how the power of 'space' can set creative minds alight
_Developed an accountability framework for you and your team to put into action
_Developed a meeting & brainstorming toolkit for you and your team to put into action
_Been on a personal journey of growth that will benefit you and those around you
_Worked out what matters and what doesn't matter - allowing you to focus your efforts where they matter

The day is priced so anyone can afford it, includes lunch and takes place in Sunny Brighton.

All participants are then welcomed into the growing Slack community we have, built from those who attend this workshop and those who have attended my other (and future) workshops.

So come with an open mind and a willingness to stop, collaborate and listen. It's the way to make things happen.

Testimonials from others who have attended my workshops or worked with me.

Jez Nicholson, Founder, Tapirtech

"Matt has a knack for setting the right environment and the right exercises for you to come up with your own personal solutions to your own personal situation."

----

Catrina Basset, Digital Business Manager, Dabapps

"Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and learnt so much I can put into practise, not just when presenting, but in meetings and everyday life. Everyone's voice was heard and the whole experience was positive, engaging and up-lifting. Matt facilitated the training brilliantly. Will be recommending highly!"

----

Anthony Prior, Founder, Bagelman

Matt managed to instantly put a diverse group of people at ease with each other which made the whole day easy going."

----

Louise Childs, Bilddable Media Manager, Conversion Works

"Matt was awesome from the minute we walked into the room, right up to when we left. He instantly put us at ease and tapped into the things that make us most nervous to help overcome them. The group transitioned into a team, all rooting for each other to be the best that they could be and supporting each other through the challenges. We all left feeling excited and empowered for the next big event. Today I presented to the whole company and I felt like people were truly listening - super result! Thanks Matt :)"

----

Rachel Jordan, Lead Learning Designer at LEO

This course really took me out of my comfort zone - challenging me to reflect on what I considered an engaging speaker to be, and by encouraging me to reflect on what I need to do to embrace these elements into my own style. A truly inspirational day!

----

Al Power, Design Lead, Dabapps

"Matthew's expertise in and clear passion for effective communication shone through in his teaching - everyone left fired up and more confident in their natural speaking abilities. Highly recommended."

----

Jay Gooby, Head of Technology, Innovate UK

"I found knowing that other people had similar issues and that they didn't really show/matter the most valuable part - it was really enjoyable and has convinced me to apply to speak at more conferences"

----

Ollie Aplin, Roughtype & Mindjournal, Freelance digital brand professional

"Ever since I was around 14 years old I've had a crippling fear of public speaking. I've never stood up in a room and talked, purely out of fear. A personal project of mine made me want to conquer the fear and give a talk so I hire Matt to help teach me how to do it.

My sessions with Matt left my mind blown as not only did he teach me the tactics to talk but more importantly how to change how I felt about talking. Within 6 weeks Matt had me up in front of roughly 20 people, giving my first ever talk that lasted 20 minutes – with no slides. Something I still struggle to believe."

----

Katja Garood, Creative Director, Brandwatch UK

"I had 4 sessions of coaching with Matt a few weeks prior to my first public speaking event representing the company I work for Brandwatch. I was completely terrified at the prospect. Convinced I had nothing smart to say, that I would freeze on stage, stutter awkwardly or dribble inappropriately. I was basically self destructing before I'd even got there.

Well, anyone reading this should know, Matt's expertise, his kind disarming manner, his positive coaching style, absolutely helped me to not only deliver what I needed to, but also enjoy the build up to the event. I genuinely walked on that stage with a smile and there is no way I could have confidently done that without Matts help."

----

Sharon Tyas, freelance teacher

"I feel like a had such a break through after the 1 to 1 and the work shop with Matt. I feel determined once and for all to let go of some things and step into my grounded, confident, willing to feel nervous and not care, not prepare,over prepare f*ck it up- or not -shoes!

Matt is a lovely, genuine, person and that shines through his approach. He really listens and understands and facillitates the group so well that you quickly feel able to share anxieties with others and feel relaxed and in a non judgemental, supportive environment. He also role models being a very good public speaker with all the skills that that involves and you leave the day feeling positive and more confident ."
