Running Effective Meetings


This fast-paced and interactive master class explores the role of chairing and facilitating meetings. Learners are provided with a range of tools and techniques to support them in developing their confidence and capability to run effective meetings.



In the majority of organisations, colleagues spend a large proportion of their time preparing for and attending meetings. The question we need to ask, is how effective are those meetings? Similarly, how skilled are your people in running effective meetings?

Time will be spent exploring how to positively chair and facilitate meetings, taking into consideration the key principles of engagement, time management and action orientation.
