We all know that meetings are a valuable and necessary way to collaborate and draw on the best of what all employees can offer to progress the aims and objectives of the organisation. Using this time in the most efficient way possible is a critical business skill.

A 2012 survey of office employees determined that on average four hours of their working time per week was spent in meetings. This figure doubled for managers and supervisors. They all estimated that over half this time was unproductive and wasted.

In our program we will show you how to build the skills necessary to ensure that all meetings you lead are productive, effective and get the best from all those who participate.

To assist and continue with skills development, we facilitate via email a post learning reflective practice utilising skills practice sessions recorded during the course. This assists delegates in embedding new learning, gives further support and enables them to define any further actions required.
