Chairing Effective Meetings

Chairing Effective Meetings - 1-day Workshop

We've all had the experience of leaving a a poorly structured meeting with the feeling that it's been a complete waste of valuable time.

This Chairing Effective Meetings course has been designed precisely to provide delegates with the skills to chair successful workplace meetings that leave participants feeling inspired, energised and with the feeling of having accomplished something useful. To this end, the 1-day programme will address the range of tools needed to ensure that any meeting planned is:

  • Planned, structured and organised to achieve the desired objectives
  • Timed in a sensible manner to give participants the chance to participate

    Delegates will thus leave the training with the knowledge and skills to plan meetings that are well structured, well coordinated and strongly focused on reaching their pre-determined objectives.

    Suitability - Who should attend?

    This Chairing Effective Meetings course is suitable for anyone looking to improve the effectiveness of their meetings in terms of co-ordination, facilitation, structure, output and/or management of group behaviour.

    Outcome / Qualification etc.

    On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
