How to Conduct Effective Meetings

How to conduct effective meetings

Powerful start hold the room and memorable ending! Is it really that easy?

Imagine leading meetings that people look forward to as they feel empowered, motivated, and interested in every part of it. Meetings don’t have to be boring, mind-numbing, time-wasting undertakings. A professional, well prepared and delivered meeting can boost not only your own personal image but your organisations if delivered well.

Remote meetings are increasingly popular but can add extra pressure as you cannot sweep the room and read body language to gauge how focussed your audience is.

This training will help you master the specific skills and mindset needed for leading effective meetings. Additionally, it will enable delegates to plan, prepare and deliver motivating and persuasive meetings both face to face and remotely to a wide range of audiences.
