Aims & Objectives

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.

Our Facilitating Effective Meetings course teaches you tools and processes that can be used in different situations to get the required results. You’ll learn about the role of a facilitator and will develop the core skills of facilitating.

Completion of a Learning Styles Questionnaire will be required ahead of the training. You will also need to come prepared with a meeting scenario that you may be asked to facilitate during the workshop.
