Masterful Meetings Management

“Meetings are indispensable when you don’t want to do anything”.


    In-House sessions are available upon request.



    To develop your skills in managing meetings, so that future meetings will be more productive. This course will equip the learner, and also enhance established strengths, with a range of knowledge and skills that are fundamental to positively contributing to an effective meeting anywhere.

    I’ve held and been part of hundreds or even thousands of meetings. Some good and some very bad. I have learnt from each and will share these thoughts.


    Who Should Attend:

    Managers of any discipline whose organizational role requires them to plan or chair meetings on behalf of the company or business unit, with internal / external customers or suppliers. More managers are required to chair and participate in meetings as part of their daily work. Through this course, you will develop a framework and understanding of the meeting process and its techniques, and gain the skills needed to achieve a better outcome for all concerned.


    General Learning Objectives:

    At the conclusion of this workshop participants will:

    • Realize that taking the chair in committees and meetings is a leadership role
    • That properly organized meetings can be very productive and add value to your company
    • By understanding various skills we can make meetings a time earner and not a time waster.
