Effective Meetings

Make your meetings rock!


Meetings bloody meetings! We all loathe those long drawn-out meetings where no one seems to have answers to our problems, they go around in circles and then seem to end them where we started. Many meetings are a huge waste of time that consume valuable hours in our week.

There is light at the end of the tunnel and meetings can be one of the most powerful tools for any organisation. Some companies have fantastic meetings that are timely, accurate and get results.

Learn how they do it in this workshop where you get to participate in a terrible meeting, then analyse and fix it. By using some simple tools you can weed out unnecessary meetings and make the remaining ones rock!

This session is aimed at business owners, managers, team leaders and anyone who runs or facilitates meetings.
