Description

•Do you want your meetings to be successful?
•Do you want to ensure your contribution at meetings, either as a participant or the chairperson, is structured, constructive and appropriate?
 

Meetings are vital for management and communication. Properly run meetings save time, increase motivation, productivity, and solve problems.

Well structured and managed meetings create new ideas and initiatives, achieve buy-in, and can demonstrate the importance and value of the contribution from those attending.

Every meeting needs a chairperson to direct proceedings and ensure the smooth running and successful completion of the meeting, for everyone attending. Every meeting also requires attendees, whose input, expertise, and opinion are sought.

This course will review the roles and skills necessary to enable you to make contributions that make a difference as well as presenting yourself in a professional manner.
