Meetings Training Course

Our meetings course provides the knowledge and skills for for you to confidently manage effective meetings.

Meetings are essential in the successful management of business activities, but too often time and effort is wasted at meetings which are not well prepared, have no clear purpose and where attendees fail to participate in making decisions.

Inefficient meetings result in notices like these displayed offices:

Are you lonely?
Work on your own?
Hate having to make decisions?
Then hold a meeting.

You can get to see other people,
sleep in peace, offload decisions,
feel important and impress your colleagues,
and all in Work Time!

Within any large organisation, hundreds of meetings take place every day and are often viewed by staff as a waste of time. But even the smallest organisation would soon grind to a halt if meetings did not happen.

When chairing meetings you must:

  • ensure that everyone gets a hearing and stop those who dominate
  • keep the meeting on course
  • manage the meeting to ensure it achieves its aims
  • at the end of a meeting ensure that everyone has a clear overview of what took place or what action is required.

This meetings course will equip you with the techniques they might use to plan and control a productive meeting, appreciated by your staff.

Who will benefit:

Anyone who chairs meetings and wants to make them structured and meaningful.

Duration: 1 day

By the end of the managing meetings course delegates will be able to…

  • make meetings shorter and more productive
  • have clear guidelines for the preparation and structure
  • decide the purpose and draw up an agenda
  • apply skills in chairing and leading meetings
  • ensure effective participation
  • maintain control
  • handle difficult people or situations
  • take decisions which are appreciated by participants.

Testimonials from our Managing Meetings courses

“Very engaging facilitator and course content. I can make use of all the content in my work.”C. Reeve-Johnson - ACT
“Clear and helpful tuition. A well run course and flexible enough to steer the content towards our business.”M. Bowman - Gardline Marine Sciences

We believe that learning should be enjoyable and interesting. This is why we use a training activity called “Survival by Teamwork” as part of the course; an enjoyable activity which is excellent for demonstrating how to run a meeting effectively, providing useful insight not just for the group leader, but for all participants. You can also find ways to bring new life and energy to your team meetings with one of our ice breakers for team meetings
