Course Overview

The effectiveness of business meetings can be blunted by irrelevancy, territorial disputes, and even personal animosities – all because there is no coherent thinking behind their assembly and supervision.

Yet, managed properly, the routine meeting can be a hugely dynamic and efficient platform for setting corporate objectives, agreeing strategies, reviewing progress on key projects, and prioritising the allocation of resources.

Meeting Facilitation Skills takes a fresh and innovative approach to an age-old issue. It instructs management on how to structure workplace meetings so as to maintain focus, avoid wasteful conflict, and deliver concrete, measurable results.
