Meeting Management – The Art of Making Meetings Work

Course Code: 2408

Whether it's a large-scale convention or a brief catch-up in the hallway, meetings come in all forms. However, our one-day training session is specifically designed for small working meetings, where participants are required to contribute their energy, commitment, and skillset to complete a task.

In these types of groups, members are looking to achieve tangible outcomes such as problem-solving, idea generation, or simply exchanging information. The success of these groups comes down to their ability to effectively utilize the strengths of each individual member, while keeping the group focused on their common goal. Join us for this training session to learn the skills needed to lead a successful small working meeting.
