Facilitating Effective Meetings

Facilitating Effective Meetings

1 Day

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.


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