Make Meetings Matter

Meetings are a part of everyday working life and sometimes seem to be the purpose, rather than the means to an end. If meetings are to meet their objectives, they need to be chaired professionally with participants contributing appropriately.  However, few of those who chair meetings have any training or support and as a result time and money are wasted. This half-day course aims to give delegates the skills and confidence to set up, run and contribute to meetings effectively.

Course content

  • The role and input of the chairperson and participants
  • The sections of the meeting and how to manage each effectively
  • Using the agenda as a management tool
  • Encouraging and managing discussion
  • Action planning


Who should attend?

Anyone who leads, or will lead formal or informal meetings
