Managing Meetings


Running an effective meeting requires more than sending out a notice to meet at a particular time and place. Effective meetings need structure and order, otherwise they risk going forever without accomplishing much. Chairing successful meetings requires clear objectives, a precise agenda, and commitment to planning and preparation. Meetings also need to run on schedule while ensuring the effective involvement of all meeting participants. The course is useful for people who chair, organise and participate in meetings. It offers a structured approach from the planning to the follow-up stages to ensure the result is a productive meeting.
