Leading Meetings Skills Course

“Perhaps Hell is nothing more than an enormous conference of those who,
with little or nothing to say, take an eternity to say it”.

Dudley C. Stone

Course Description

In many organisations meetings do not always enjoy a particularly good reputation, and may well be viewed as notorious time wasting exercises. Whilst, this will hopefully be unintentional it is none the less very frustrating, not to mention expensive. Furthermore ineffective meetings are invariably unproductive and demoralising.

The person leading the meeting has a pivotal role to play in ensuring that meetings are necessary, effective, timely, rewarding and productive. However, the very nature of some meetings makes these outcomes extremely difficult to achieve. Particularly if the person leading or Chairing the meeting has not had the opportunity to acquire and develop the skills required to achieve the desired outcome.

This course is primarily designed for those people who are required to lead or Chair meetings and provides participants with the knowledge and techniques to develop their skills to ensure that meetings are effective and well led.
