Aims

Meetings are a critical part of working culture – effective meetings save time and money. When meetings are facilitated well the attendees feel more empowered which increases their engagement and subsequent willingness to implement the action list.

This workshop will provide a list of tools and processes that can be used in different situations to get the required results. Participants will not only understand what is required of them in their role as a facilitator, they will also develop the core skills of facilitating.

Objectives

This one day workshop will develop great facilitators that can be utilised by the business to add real value to meeting effectiveness.

How we deliver

Training can be delivered at your offices in either of the following ways:

  • Online

    Online training is ideal if you have staff in different geographical locations who have the same Microsoft or Adobe training requirements.

    Our expert trainers can deliver Watch and Learn sessions to up to 100 people. Alternatively, they can produce an interactive session that allows delegates to complete practical exercises within the Microsoft or Adobe apps of your choosing.

  • Face to face

    Choose from one or half day training sessions or our popular 90-minute Sprint sessions, which can be delivered in your offices or at another location of your choice.

    All we need is a room with a table and chairs and we look after the rest. We can even provide laptops and a projector should you not have spare IT equipment to use.
